25 Years of KidSafe Matching Campaign!
TOTAL RAISED SO FAR, INCLUDING OFFLINE DONATIONS: $45,781! Donate today and double your impact! KidSafe supporter and local entrepreneur, Shafin Diamond Tejani, has once again generously agreed to match all donations made between March 19 and April 30, up to $50,000!
This year, we are proud to be celebrating our 25th year serving our community through free, referral-based break programming for vulnerable inner-city children, as well as high school support through our KidLink Youth Transition Program.
We have come a long way since our beginnings back in 1993, with our Winter, Spring and Summer Break Program now at six inner-city Vancouver elementary schools!
Each year we provide 350 vulnerable, referred children with:
57,750 meals and snacks cooked on-site
134,750 hours of developmental activities and field trips
Support and supervision from caring adult staff
When you think back to school break, what do you remember? Likely a carefree time for travel, fun and friends. But for the 1 in 5 Vancouver children experiencing poverty, their school break can be just the opposite. When school doors close, they are often left without the nutritious meals, activities, and adult supervision they need. The unjust but common reality facing tens of thousands of local children is that school break is a time of loneliness, hunger and instability.
YOUR DONATION WILL HELP KIDSAFE WELCOME 350 INSPIRING CHILDREN INTO OUR BREAK PROGRAMS THIS YEAR.
Here are just a few examples of the important services that donations fund:
$100 funds a field-trip for 5 children
$250 funds one child's space in KidSafe for one week
$500 funds one child's space in KidSafe for two weeks
$2,000 funds one child's space in KidSafe for the full summer
$6,000 funds a family's space (3 children) in KidSafe for the full summer
