The Members of 100 Kids Who Care Calgary totally stepped up at our very first event and made a huge impact in our community! (Visit 100KidsCalgary.com)
This is a LUH KIF post (i.e.: Keepin' It Fresh - in everyone's minds!), highlighting the amazing and tireless work of Danielle Donovan.
Upon checking out the latest on their website, we also discovered, Be Hip, a non-profit organization founded in 2005 as a way to engage children under the age of 12 in the practice of philanthropy. Over time, Be Hip has evolved, working with 80+ Calgary agencies to create simple ways that anyone can help with.
Speaking of Lemonade Stands today, on 100 Kids Calgary's FB page we caught how one Mom, her daughter, and their neighbours held a sale May 6th, and donated all the funds raised to Fort McMurray. A great idea she added was to encourage anyone else doing the same thing to post the total amount raised, giving kids real and tangible insight into how much they're helping those in need!

Calgary Kids are doing their part to support our community. Based on the simple and successful concepts of 100 Women Who Care Calgary and 100 Men Who Give A Damn Calgary, 100 Kids Who Care Calgary bring together 100 or more kids. These children range in age from five to 17. They get together four times a year to make a big impact in their community.
Co-founder Danielle Donovan says it’s inspiring to see the next generation of givers in Calgary. Donovan says, “I wanted to find a way to introduce my children to the concept of giving and supporting those in need within our community.”
Donovan, who is a stay at home mother of three under the age of eight, wanted to find a charity where her young children could be actively involved beyond simply sending money. After attending her first 100 Women meeting in Calgary, Donovan knew she had found what she had been looking for. From there the first 100 Kids Who Care in Western Canada came to life.
