My two sons have been part of this incredible organization for the past 5 years. They have participated in so many KfP-organized projects and activities that have truly opened their hearts and their minds. This summer they each participated in separate sessions of the first ever Kids for Peace virtual summer camp and they loved it! It was 10 days of activities that were not only fun, but meaningful, too. They met new friends from all over the world, learned about different cultures, and participated in a group service project. It was a camp like no other that was absolutely perfect for a time that has certainly been like no other.

My sons have been part of Kids for Peace for the last 4 years and have grown so much, emotionally, from making a regular practice of putting their compassion into action. As a chapter co-leader, I have seen this change in so many kids at our school and how the presence of our chapter on campus affects the student body and school culture as a whole.

Our girls just completed a 2-week virtual camp through Kids for Peace. They are both active members of their Kids for Peace chapters at their schools and really loved the camp that they provided! Both girls were so engaged, loved meeting other kids from around the globe, fully enjoyed all the crafts and activities and most of all, felt so happy and positive in general! Love what Kids for Peace stands for and how it affects our kids!!!

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!!

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.

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!
