KIDS WHO CARE is not an official charity and therefore we cannot provide tax receipts. We are hoping that since the donation amounts are small (we suggest keeping it between $1-10 depending on the chosen method/activity) , donors won't need or require a tax receipt.
Parents will need to submit the funds collected to KIDS WHO CARE via a GO FUND ME PAGE that we have set up. Once the funds are received in the GO FUND ME account, a receipt will be posted on the website and social media for the exact amount that was raised to show where the funds were spent, providing our donors and members full transparency.
Your child, depending on their age, may need assistance with collection of funds and remitting to the GO FUND ME page. Alternatively, you can teach them how to do it. Remember, we want to encourage our children to take charge and ownership of their fundraiser from start to finish.
“We ourselves feel that we are doing just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
We will be using facebook, instagram and whatsapp to communicate and showcase our members' initiatives and efforts. We also want to encourage other kids and parents to get involved in our program and being able to show photos/videos of the kids completing their activity would be an awesome inspiration for others.
If you are uncomfortable with having their faces on social media, you can show their hands 'doing their thing' or just record them from behind or even simply post their completed marketing and fundraising sheet to facebook and instagram. We want to show our kids that these social media platforms can be used in a positive way.
We will be posting smaller weekly kindness challenges social media accounts and it would be great to see the kids in action! These smaller challenges will not require fundraising. An example of a kindness mission would be to leave a note on your favourite neighbour's porch to let them know how much you appreciate them!
Parents can help with accountability, support, encouragement and ideas (it's what we do anyway :))
It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters"
