Minigrants for Kids Care Week Projects

Posted on October 04, 2010

Kids Care Week set for October 17-23

Kids Care Week, presented by generationOn and celebrated the third week of October, recognizes the power of kids to help others in their community and the world.

During the week, young people focus their compassion on a specific social issue through a service project.  Kids Care Week culminates on Make a Difference Day, a national day of doing good sponsored by USA Weekend and held in partnership with HandsOn Network.

Young people are asked to “”make your mark on the world: go the extra mile” during Kids Care Week.

Thanks to a partnership with Hasbro Children’s Fund, generationOn will award mini-grants in the amount of $250 to support service projects that are related to the social issues the Extra Mile Honorees addressed. Issues include: aging and the elderly, animals, civil rights, disabilities, disaster relief, economy, education, environment, health & health care, homelessness, human rights, hunger, immigration, peace, poverty, and unemployment. Individual youth, classrooms, clubs and groups can apply for the mini-grants by visiting here.
