Mission: The Kimberly Moore Foundation is about the world joining together to create a better tomorrow and future for children. The Kimberly Moore Foundation is dedicated to creating a variety of innovative programs that bring hope to children in need all over the world, helping those without a voice, empowering individuals and communities to change lives. Our objective is to fulfill the wishes of underprivileged children through an element of surprise.... a "WOW" moment whenever possible! Some of our programs include: "Adopt-A-Letter", "Keeping Harmony Alive" , "Better Minds through Reading", "Adopt A Country", "Adopt A Light", "Career Exploration", and the "Hope Ambassador" program for teens who wish to pay it forward. The Kimberly Moore Foundation recognizes there are many children, due to financial struggles and lack of resources, who are never exposed to opportunities that allow them to see the hope and possibilities that exist in our world. Granting a dream can help change a child's outlook towards life for the better and can be seen in each of the kids we kept in touch with.

Results: The Kimberly Moore Foundation's - Adopt A Letter program was founded in 2007 Christmas after Kimberly Moore found a letter at the U.S. Post Office addressed to Santa Claus of a child asking for food. That very Christmas Kimberly picked up hundreds of letters from the U.S. post office shredding facility and personally traveled door to door delivering hope to 1,700 children. Today Kimberly Moore has adopted the wishes of over 40,000 children in the community surprising each one at their doorstep with food, groceries, clothing, furniture, school supplies, computers, educational scholarships and more. Today Kimberly Moore is known as the "Real Santa Claus" in the community. Better Minds Through Reading - We believe that every child should have access to books and the opportunity to build their own home library. Today the Kimberly Moore Foundation has partnered together with various non-profits collecting over 8,500 books for children in need! Keeping Harmony Alive - a program dedicated to saving music programs in schools that are slowly being eliminated due to state education budget cuts. KHA focuses on collecting instruments and funds to supply the appropriate tools and mentoring to keep the music programs alive. The Kimberly Moore Foundation has worked with the city of Bell Garden's and proud to secure their music program for the next 15-20 years. Hope Ambassador program: The Kimberly Moore Foundation grooms a select group of teen leaders who wish to pay it forward to activate their own communities in making a difference. Hope Ambassadors (the very own children who were helped through Adopt A Letter) have now assisted in community service making wishes come true for other children and families, bringing hope to over 5,000 children in the community. Adopt A Country- Every year with your help we adopt a letter of a country in need! Today we have adopted EL Salvador and proud to launch 5 Kimberly Moore Foundation Learning Centers in 5 cities. We are also in the process of constructing our first "Girl Friendly" school in Liberia, West Africa through our partnership with A New Dimension of Hope. Adopt A Light: This is a program we created through our partnership with LUCI Solar lights, after learning that most of the children we are helping with education in developing countries do not have access to electricity and are unable to do homework once the sun goes down. Today we have provided over 350 homes with inflatable solar lights.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 1,000 - 5,000 children

I've been following Kimberly and her foundation for over 2 years, and I continue to be uplifted and inspired by the incredible work she's doing. Education and the well being of a child is the basis of building the foundation for a stable life. I am overwhelmed by the commitment the Kimberly Moore Foundation has shown for both. The Kimberly Moore foundation challenges us to make good use of our time and our hands in service to others. The most important part of the future is out children. The Kimberly Moore Foundations teaches us every day, when we take care of our children, we are taking care of our future.

In an age where charity and humanitarian efforts are merely image enhancement opportunities The Kimberly Moore Foundation sets the standard for sincerity, authenticity and hope. I have witnessed many so called foundations in the past and Kimberly Moore has not only made history but has impacted the lives of so many forgotten people that had no hope, no love and no future. Not only have I had the honor of knowing Kimberly Moore but have been lucky enough to witness first hand the impact she's had on people's lives. It's remarkable what one person can do. If the heart of the matter is a matter of the heart then the Kimberly Moore Foundation sets the standard for greatness and positive impact on the world.

My name is Yvonne Elmasri and I have had the pleasure of working with Kimberly Moore and The Kimberly Moore Foundation for several years now. Kimberly’s dedication to helping children across the globe is exceptional, heartwarming and inspiring. I’m not sure if people are aware as to just how much of herself she gives to others to make sure the children she commits to are taken care of. Every letter from a child gets answered and because of the impact her organization has made for the children of Los Angeles she has expanded globally. A modern day Mother Theresa is what I call her. I’ve seen children’s lives impacted and changed by one small gesture. Just knowing someone out there cares can make all the difference. We are so very lucky to have her here in Los Angeles and the world will soon see how blessed they are as well.

A couple of years ago I was looking for a charity to volunteer for and also to showcase on my website PynkCelebrity.com. Our website generally focuses on celebrity news but we also feature charities as well. As I was doing my research I came across Kimberly Moore. I was so intrigued with how much of an impact one person could make for the city of Los Angeles and the children in this city who are in need. As I looked more into it I learned that these kids who write to the Kimberly Moore Foundation are looking for food, socks, blankets., etc. These were not kids looking to get the latest electronic gadget. When I read one letter from a child who wanted pasta, just one warm meal, that was it for me. I then saw a video of Kimberly on the news visiting local families and it broke my heart to see so many children going without a christmas or presents and without food or clothes! I met with Kimberly, heard her story and wanted to be a part of this somehow. I thought if I could shed light using the power of the media and my blog it would help and as I went out with Kimberly to make deliveries I wanted to work with her even more. I was shocked to learn how much she puts into this, the work involved and the impact she makes on these families! One small gesture can change a child's life. For these kids just to know that someone out there cares, gives them hope and let's them know they are not alone. Taking one small step like making a donation can literally change a child's outlook on life. I hope to work with Kimberly for many years to come. We have named her the "Mother Teresa of Los Angeles' and if you pay attention to her work you will see why.

I met Kimberly while she was doing her amazing work to help el Salvador. She had all the laptop computers donated for the kids that were in need at the schools. Its been about three years now and she just recent helped build a school in Liberia!!! Now lets not forget all the amazing work she does with the kids here in Los Angeles every Christmas by being their secret santa and replying as many of those kids wishes as possible and personally going out to deliver these gifts like santa himself! Kimberly is the most genuine, caring, compassionate, kind, humble, strong and resilient person I know. Kimberly Moore Foundation will have a legacy for lifetimes to come thanks to all her sacrifice dedication blood sweat and tears she has invested into her foundation!!!!

Kimberly Moore is one of the most amazing women I have ever met! So many big things have come from this humble yet tireless woman. She puts her heart and soul into everything she does. I have watched her grow this foundation helping thousands upon thousands of underprivileged with wishes big and small fulfilled. She amazes me and every time I think one person can’t do more, she does! There is no stopping her! She doesn’t do it for the accolades, she does it for those that need it what ever it is! She earned the name the real Santa and deserves it! I could only hope to be as generous with my life and time as she is. No one I know is more deserving than she and her foundation to be recognized!

I absolutely loved working with the Kimberly Moore Foundation. I signed up to volunteer when a friend recommended this organization and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. The company that I work for sponsored Holiday gifts for about 19 families and Kimberly was kind enough to let me join the hand delivery team! This experience literally changed my life. Seeing the joy that these toys and clothes gave to the children and parents was extremely heartwarming. Kimberly helps so many people during a calendar year that I literally cannot wrap my brain around it. I look forward to working with her foundation in the future again in any way that I can!

Kimberly Moore is a true Earth Angel. She embraces children whose circumstances seem hopeless and she shows them, through her presence, love and joy, that the world does truly care. We are fortunate to have Kimberly as our messenger and model. We can donate to her foundation to offer these children some tangible gifts that can make a huge difference in their perspective of how they look at their dreams and their futures.

As the principal of Roosevelt Elementary School in the city of Lynwood, I am happy to say that our school has been blessed to have been given the opportunity to partner up with Kimberly Moore Foundation. Ms. Moore is one of the most amazing, humble and kind individuals I have ever met. She has successfully brought many guest speakers to work with our students at our Annual Read Across America and Career Day for the past 4 years. In addition, Ms. Moore has adopted many of our students' holiday letters and has brought beautiful smiles to our BEARS. We will forever be grateful to this incredible foundation. The Roosevelt Family LOVES Kimberly Moore and appreciates everything the foundation does for millions of families across the world!

As a Media Ecologist and member of the press I've been lucky enough to have interfaced with some of the most influential people in the world in the areas of advanced technology and International Finance during which time I've witnessed numerous Philanthropic endeavors in operation. The Kimberly Moore Foundation stands far above and beyond anything I've witnessed because of Kimberly Moore herself. If there were a proper definition of Philanthropy Kimberly Moore's history and hands on efforts to make the world a better place are above and beyond anything I've witnessed before. The difference between her and others is her tireless effort to make hands on contact with those she's helping and her willingness to tirelessly meet her goals and those of others. The backbone of true Philanthropy rests with it's creator and Kimberly Moore possesses a light that changes everything she touches for the better. I'm proud to know her and proud of all that she's achieved. The Kimberly Moore Foundation sets the standard for Philanthropy and she will always lead it with love, honor and fortitude.

I have been volunteering with Kimberly for the last several years and I absolutely love this Foundation. My experience with Kimberly has been very unique compared to other nonprofits I have volunteered with. She truly has her heart and soul poured into her noble causes. Last December I volunteered with Kimberly and her team wrapping and preparing boxes for her Adopt A Letter organization. It was so amazing to be a part of something that brought so many smiles to children in the community who might not have had a Christmas.

I have known Kimberly for over 15 years. We live in the same building in SM. Kimberly is always in good spirits and friendly, no matter how tired she is from all the wonderful and charitable work she does. I am always amazed by her spirit and drive! She will come back from a few weeks in Latin America, like from El Salvador, or Liberia, Africa, and rather than be exhausted and drained, she has this amazing drive and energy and spirit and is looking forward to her next trip away to do more charitable work. Kimberly is simply a selfless, passionate, philanthropist. Her moto is to do what you love -- and in her case, that is to give to others and help others -- love, laugh and have a purpose in life. I think Kimberly's Adopt a Letter charities, was one of her first endeavors. She collected toys, money, books, clothes, etc. and would drive around to deliver these items to children and families around LA during the holidays. On Christmas, Kimberly delivers packages to less fortunate families too, part of her Santa Adopt a Letter charity. Where Kimberly has the time or energy is beyond me?! No matter when we pass in the courtyard, she is full of life, with a painted smile on her face. Kimberly Moore's Foundation deserves all the recognition and honor it can get. This foundation has helped thousands of children here at home in America, and abroad! And it is a charity that keeps on giving, for new schools are being built, sick kids are being helped (Kimberly and Dr. Jerry Brown helped thousands who had been suffering from the Ebola virus), and thousands are reaping the rewards from this charity. I love seeing Kimberly on FB, doing her thing! She will be across the nation delivering toys and clothes to sick kids one day, and the next, she'll be flying off to Africa to do charitable work there. The Kimberly Moore Foundation deserves every award out there in my opinion! Thanks Kimberly for all the amazing work you do!

I have never felt so inspired by a nonprofit. Kimberly is our modern day Mother Theresa. She has brought hope to over 40,000 children around the world and I was there to see many of her children out there paying it forward during my volunteer work with this organization. People who say one person can not change the world are full of it! This women is out there making it wishes come true, educating the children she helps to give back and involving other nonprofits to help her with her mission to transform lives. Kimberly has brought education to children in El Salvador living in 5 different cities and now made her way to Liberia, Africa to build her first Girl Friendly school in a village of 3,000 people. She seems to get fully immersed in her projects and is truly passionate about helping the voiceless. Anyone who was lucky enough to meet her can tell you, this women operates out of pure loves and it shines through when she is with them as can be seen in her beautiful photos.
