The Liddle Kidz Foundation is a nonprofit that does way more than help people. It is ran by people with a vision and mission who invite, seek out, welcome, and encourage people to be a part of it and learn from/gain the benefits of touch. LKF brings positive healing touch to infants and kids that need it, and helps build up the people who volunteer with them in so many ways. They arm people with knowledge and have fun doing it. If there's a nonprofit out there that is deserving of support, you're looking at them.

As an advocate for nurturing touch and massage therapy, and as a past volunteer for the LKF out reach to Vietnam in 2010 I can emphasize enough how wonderful this organization is.
LKF gave me an opportunity to spread my knowledge of children and wellness internationally, but it also literally nurtures the well-being of thousands of children. I have professionally worked with children on the autism spectrum for six years and have been a licensed massage therapist for over four years. What I have learned from Tina Allen and others who work with LKF has been incredible. Children crave physical contact and their healthy development is dependent on tactile sensory input. This organizations helps teach caregivers how to provide this need to children.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Taking courses for certification and direct outreach. They are inspiring

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help it grow and give the opportunity for others to be involved.

Tina Allen is such a wonderful teacher and a blessing to the people she comes in contact with
by sharing her knowledge she helps multiple people and children through the ripple effect. When you leave one of her classes you have all the information and technique you need to teach others then you have an impact on families,caregivers and infants, you are part of something larger than yourself contributing to this care is so rewarding.
Her determination and energy towards her goal of helping children is contagious .
With a great sense of humor and integrity she has a wonderful organization and I am happy to support it.
I like to think about how our world would be if nurturing touch were commonplace with all our children. What a great way to start out life !

The Liddle Kidz Foundation is the most committed group of people I have met in the massage/health field. Tina Allen is highly energetic and is able to inspire and give hope to those she meets.
I have learned Pediatric Massage and became a Certified Infant Massage Teacher from Tina and walked away with so much knowledge and inspiration. I love to share my lessons with children and families to improve their lives & health.
Being a male in this industry working with children and families can be an obstacle but with Tina's expert training & teaching I have been given great tools to present myself and my work in a thoughtful and professional manner. Tina is a tireless advocate for children and their families!
However you connect with Liddle Kidz Foundation ( Student, family, client, volunteer or friend) you will be ever thankful for the experience. I am very grateful for my connection with Liddle Kidz Foundation & Tina!
