You may be small but you can make a difference

Hello friends. Here’s the latest update on 100 Kids Kingston. We had our 2nd official meeting on February 2, 2016. The group continues to grow. (100 Kids is now a group of 205 children!)

I believe in 100 Kids Kingston and everything this new group represent. When I first heard about 100 Kids, I jumped at the opportunity to become part of the action and work with them in whatever way I could. The main premise behind 100 Kids—to give children a sense of how good it can feel to give back to others and become ‘lifelong givers’ in their own community—is one that is easy to support and get behind. Just like 100 Kids, I’m forever learning to “give of my talents, my treasures and my time.” The fit couldn’t be better for me. I feel honoured and privileged to be part of 100 Kids Kingston.

Meeting #2 was a success—a great combination of business and pleasure. Kim, Julie and Jess, the 3 women behind 100 Kids, orchestrated a well-paced evening. Short and sweet and meaningful.   After listening to mini-presentations by 3 local charities: Hart Centre, Loving Spoonful and The Boys and Girls Club the children voted and chose to support Hart Centre who received a checque for over $1000.00 (I can’t recall the exact amount.)

Well done everyone.

I wrote a theme song for 100 Kids Kingston. (Also short and sweet and, hopefully, meaningful.) I introduced it to the group at the gathering:

We’re 100 Kids!

We’re 100 strong!

We’re writing a new story.

We’re singing a new song.

 

We’re 100 Kids!

We’re 100 strong!

We hope that you will join us.

We hope you’ll sing along.

 

We’re 100 kids who really, really care

We’re just like other kids living everywhere

But we have more than others. Yes we have more than most

And we have many gifts to share so we propose a toast.

 

We’re 100 Kids!

We’re 100 strong!

We’re writing a new story.

We’re singing you this song.

We’re writing a new story.

We’re singing you this song.

Stay tuned for details for an upcoming special event at the Tett Centre. 100 Kids will be gathering on Saturday February 20 at 1p.m. to record our new theme song. Here is a little video of me teaching the 100 Kids Song at the meeting.  Check it out to learn the song and then come join us at the Tett Centre!
