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!
Just 10 years ago Kids for Peace started as a small grassroots nonprofit that has now become a BIG international movement by encouraging kids to take the lead in creating a peaceful world.
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!
My heart is filled with joy each time I hear about the wonderful work Kids for Peace is doing around the world. They truly live by the Peace Pledge that children recite each day. We, as grown-up kids can learn from their open hearts and willing spirit.
I have been involved with Kids for Peace for the past year and have been proud to be a part of their mission. Not only have I personally been inspired by their vision and work but it is evident through their ongoing success how impactful this organization is on all who come in touch with them.
When I first encountered Kids For Peace, I was blown away by how mindful the kids in the organization were. As a New parent, it made me want to get involved and that was almost 3 years ago! I have supported this wonderful organization because of their organic and true kindness in the world, plus their mission and cause is elevating and exactly what we need right now!
Pure love and true action that involves changing the world with kindness through our children.
What an amazing organization! I've been fortunate to witness the inspiring efforts of this one of a kind organization.
Kids for Peace is an active organization that facilitates kids' involvement in creating peace. One of the remarkable things about the organization is the ages of the children-they aren't doing this for school credit or to put on their resume! These are kids reaching out to other kids through Kids for Peace-great concept-great implementation!
I am so thrilled, blessed and honored to have recently found Kids For Peace. This non-profit empowers children from so many countries, of all different backgrounds, nationalities and ages, to carry out acts of kindness and bring peace to the world. Children are the voice and mission of Kids For Peace, this is one amazing organization!
The other day I picked up my 5 year old twins from school and on the way home they asked "Is there a weapon that could cut the world in two?". After pausing for a few seconds, I answered "Yes, there are weapons that if countries use enough of them, they could literally cut the world in two. That's why we are called to love others, because when we love each other and live in peace, then something like that would NEVER happen." This brief dialog illustrates why I support Kids For Peace, an organization which allows children a voice to love others and our world with their special hearts and hands.
Chapters are organized by neighborhood and school. Chapters are NOT age or gender specific. Children in Kids for Peace work together on arts, environmental, community, and global service projects, learning tolerance and cooperation along the way. As a former girl-scout, I celebrate the forward-thinking nature of this extracurricular group, and I believe it is an excellent classroom tool to help curb bullying.
Over the past year, i have served as a working board member, as well as a chapter leader. In my time with this organization, I have witnessed firsthand adults and children be more kind, helpful & loving with each other because of the work of Kids for Peace. Now more than ever, our world needs to fully embrace KfP's motto ~ "Kindness Matters!" It's true, our future is in the hands of our children ... and KIds for Peace is doing the work to ensure that we to have peace in the years to come. Please consider joining us by donating, volunteering, starting your own chapter or rooting on the kids! Thank you ~ namaste.
