I have been a donor to Kids for Peace for over 10 years. I have watched the organization grow from a local "club" to a global nonprofit with programs in 121 countries and over 10 million children served. I personally know many children who are part of Kids for Peace and I am so impressed by their compassion and leadership skills. Guided by the Peace Pledge, these children are changing the world. No doubt, if everyone followed the Peace Pledge, we really would have a world of peace!
The Peace Pledge
(written by Kids for Peace)
I pledge to use my words to speak in a kind way.
I pledge to help others as I go throughout my day.
I pledge to care for our earth with my healing heart and hands.
I pledge to respect people in each and every land.
I pledge to join together to unite the big and small.
I pledge to do my part to create peace for one and all.

So many positive experiences with Kids for Peace! I have participated in training youth leaders, building a school in Kenya, speaking to school children and their teachers about anti-bullying, ways to be kind, and ways to create peace. I have volunteered at conferences to encourage school personnel to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge, and in 2017, there were more than 10 million children worldwide who participated, each child doing 50 acts of kindness in one week! Good Morning America showcased this Kids for Peace initiative for a whole week in January 2017! I have headed up book drives and collected more than 5000 children's books for distribution to needy children, and helped to build a playground and a school infirmary in a third world country. Kids for Peace is extraordinary!!

Could have more substance. It has potential but no where near the top. My kids learned nothing other than smiling for picture shoots as token unWASPS,Not a safe environment for any kids other than blond, They feel left out .

Kids For Peace touches the hearts soul of all global citizens who embrace it's cause. From the volunteers who help build and expand the program, to those that fundraise, to our children in the west who develop a cultural awareness and empathy for those who need a helpless my hand. It is a life changer for all those who engage with its programs.

Kids for Peace is a wonderful organization that encourages kids and teens from all over the world to get up and go outside and actually make a change, as opposed to simply sending money anonymously. there is a certain value in letting young people see how the other half of the world lives, and it makes for a truly life-changing experience. Kids for Peace is run by some truly beautiful human beings, both inside and out. 5 stars

I have been a proud Kids for Peace volunteer for two years, and am now a Board Member. As a retired educator, I have found this incredible non-profit fills my heart and soul with its mission of generosity and global peace. Two weeks ago we went to Kenya to open our first Kids for Peace School, serving more than 160 three-to-eight-year-olds in the small village of Mikei. The school and it's playground was 100% funded by the children of the United States and we brought more than 3500 books, art supplies, and classroom supplies to the children and their dedicated teachers! What a fulfilling adventure. I love Kids for Peace!

I am inspired to live the words of the Kids for Peace pledge each and every day....

I pledge to use my words to speak in a kind way. I pledge to help others as I go throughout my day. I pledge to care for our earth with my healing heart and hands. I pledge to respect people in each and every land. I pledge to join together as we unite the big and small. I pledge to do my part to CREATE PEACE for one and all!
