This was such a positive experience. I was looking into ways to fund a unit I wanted to teach in my kindergarten class, and found this organization. I not only funded the unit for myself but also for three other teachers in my building. And it was so easy! I will definitely be looking into funding other projects to give my kids more opportunities and experiences that they would otherwise not have. Thank you!

The kids in need program is great for both sides: those that need help and those groups looking for a way to help worthy causes either locally or nationally. I can not thing of a better way to match the two up.

Moving forward, I will continue to use the service and highly recommend
both perspective programs and donating foundations to investigate for themselves how well the program works

The Kids in Need Foundation has provided me with money needed to implement service projects, and other classroom activities, that I would not have been able to do otherwise. These course activities have completely enhanced the learning and educational experiences in my classes and so I am very grateful for this foundation. The process in getting the money for the grants awarded was very easy and overall was a great experience. I would highly recommend this foundation to interested parties.

Kids In Need is a wonderful organization that has provided essential learning materials to very needy first graders in Michigan. We are in tough economic times here in Michigan, especially in our county. The financial support Kids In Need provided has opened possibilities for children that may not have been possible. We had a wonderful, eye-opening unit about Celebrations Around the World in December and January because of Kids In Need's generous support. THANK YOU!!!

Kids in Need Foundation is a magical group. When I first attended their luncheon I was taken by the unbelievable amount of appreciation for the hard work that teachers do. This was the moment that I decided I had to get involved with this group-- I am now on the Teacher Grant Board.

The Kids in Need Foundation paired with Fred Meyer provided grant money to support physical education at the middle school level. This grant money allowed all students to create a personal fitness plan by giving them access to common gym equipment to learn the principles of sets, reps, muscle toning and building, etc. Without their support students would not have had the equipment to participate in "the doing" of their fitness plans.

The Kids In Need Grant that I received helped support visual art in the elementary classroom setting . My students were able to explore and experience hands on the colorization of black and white photographs. This opportunity has provided an experiencee that we would not be able to expand on had we not had the grant help.
My students were thrilled with the chance of being their own photographer, examining the world around them and using their aesthetic value to the photographs of their choice.
Learning new ways to color photographs and explore first hand how they could render the feeling and moods of varios photographs with the selection of colors .
This was an empowering experience leaving the students with a new understanding of artist and the content of their work.
The success was measured in a variety of ways , seeing each student completely engaged in their work was one way that it shined as a successful learning tool.

The Kids in Need Grant that my students received allowed them to create their own business! By receiving the $500.00 grant monies, Transition Students in the T.R.A.C.T. Program bought 3 new shredders. They now receive all the school's important shredding boxes in our district, and do all the shredding themselves. They then take the shredding bags to the recycling center for processing, with TRACT provided transportation.
Combined with their shredding project, they also collect all schools cafeteria cans, bottles, etc. to be recycled.
Students then bill each school for shredding/recycling services completed. Money returned to the TRACT Program by schools is deposited directly into the student TRACT fund, and students then decide how and where the money is spent with teacher support. This great project gives students an opportunity to learn responsibility for their job, follow through with their commitment, and budgeting/banking skills with their money. The kids love it!

My students are happy with the project they are doing. They feel pride in their work, as they are providing a necessary service, and they are learning good job skills! They are also learning to cooperate with each other, problem solve, and work as a team to accomplish a goal! Great skill development with student driven energy and success is possible because of this opportunity.

I would continue to do this the same, but expand in our district. I would also like to have students present the project to each school principal/etc. to encourage their expertise with speaking and engaging with others.

I am very appreciative of The Kids In Need Program. Their support of education enabled our 6th grade students to dive into a plankton study of our local bay. This included baseline studys of what plankton they can find as well as a citizen science participation of harmful alage blooms. The students are sharing their learning with the 120 younger students at our elementary school and will culminate with working with local scientists and plankton art and trading card projects. This has been a powerful place-based scientific cross curricular study. Thank you!

I have had a positive experience so have no suggested changes other than possibly making some larger grants available like perhaps $1000 - $5000 categories.

Thanks to the Kids-In-Need Foundation, 200 second grade children at my impoverished school learned about the human body by making pasta skeletons, spines they got to eat made of hard and gummy lifesavers, stethoscopes made from funnels and tubing, and "thinking caps" made from surgical caps labeled with the functions if each part of the brain. NONE of this would have been possible without this grant. THANK YOU KINF!!!
