Kids Care Week: October October 17 – 23

Kids Care Week, presented by generationOn and celebrated the third week of October, recognizes the power of kids to help others in their community and the world. During the week, young people focus their compassion on a specific social issue through a service project. Kids Care Week culminates on Make a Difference Day, a national day of doing good sponsored by USA Weekend and held in partnership with HandsOn Network. During Kids Care Week 2010, October 17th to the 23rd, we are asking young people to “make your mark on the world: go the extra mile.”
Thanks to a partnership with Hasbro Children’s Fund, in celebration of Kids Care Week 2010, generationOn will award mini-grants in the amount of $250, to support service projects that are related to the social issues the Extra Mile Honorees addressed. Issues include: Aging & the Elderly, Animals, Civil Rights, Disabilities, Disaster Relief, Economy, Education, Environment, Health & Health Care, Homelessness, Human Rights, Hunger, Immigration, Peace, Poverty, and Unemployment. Individual youth, classrooms, clubs and groups can apply for the mini-grants. Apply at GenerationOn .
