I think for a lot of us the thought of one of our children facing a life-threatening illness is too much to bear. Unfortunately for so many that’s the reality. Luckily we have A Kid Again in Central Ohio to help those living this reality by providing really fun adventures for the whole family.
Raising a child with a life-threatening illness comes with so many challenges - medical bills, time off work, doctors appointments, and so much more. It’s hard for families to be able to take extra time off or spend any extra money on fun adventures - even though they certainly want to. That’s where A Kid Again comes in.
A Kid Again is honored to serve families who are raising children living with life-threatening illnesses. They are able to provide cost free, fun filled destinations events throughout the year. To be able to make these adventures come true for so many Central Ohio families they need to support our local communities so below I’m sharing 5 ways to help A Kid Again put on more fun adventures for the whole family.
Volunteer Your Time
They have so many ways you can volunteer your time. Some of the opportunities include - event planning, social media, hospital visitation, administrative/office support, and more. You can head here to look at all of the opportunities and apply to be a volunteer. It’s important to remember that A Kid Again thrives off of volunteers just like you. The donation of time is priceless.
Become a Sponsor
You can give the gift of adventure to a child in our community by making a one time (or recurring) donation. By sponsoring a child or a family you are giving that family an opportunity they may not otherwise have. You can sign up here to be a sponsor.
Are you having a birthday party? Planning on running a race? Simply ask your guests to donate to A Kid Again in lieu of gifts. Create your own fundraiser and help them get to their $50,000 fundraising goal.
Shop with a Purpose
Sometimes donating extra funds or extra time can be challenging. I get that. Luckily Amazon Smiles has you covered. Simply set A Kid Again as your charity of choice and shop Amazon Smile and everything you buy will benefit A Kid Again. It’s such a great program that takes all the work out of it for you. You can learn more about the program here.
Help them get the word out by sharing about them. Share social media posts, engage on social media, if you know of a business looking to participate in community outreach - suggest A Kid Again. No gesture is too small and every single like, share, comment matters.
