YOU MAY BE SMALL BUT YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE …

Earlier this month a very special group called 100 Kids had its official launch and inaugural meeting in Kingston. 100 Kids is a group that aims to get kids actively involved in their community by giving their “time, talents and treasures” in the form of participating in group meetings and donating their time and money to the group.

The group, started by Kim Betts, Julie Fossit and Jessica Duggan, includes kids from Kindergarten to Grade 6 who are invited to participate in three annual meetings at the Boys and Girls Club.

“Our goal is to teach kids that intrinsic feeling of how good it feels to give back to others and really work to create lifelong givers in our community.”

I was invited to help (musically) with the inaugural meeting held Monday November 2 and what a great launch it was! It turns out that 100 Kids has already become 171 Kids and, in their first meeting, they raised $1160.00 for the Humane Society of Kingston. (The children voted for 3 local charities: Habitat for Humanity, Kingston Humane Society and ‘Save a Family From Syria’ Kingston.)

If you’re interested in finding out more about 100 Kids, I encourage you visit their website and Facebook page.
