Be Kind. Change the World. Win Prizes
Channel Kindness is a platform used to lift up the voices of young people, to amplify stories of kindness, and – most importantly – to inspire people to put compassion into action in their own lives. Communities are actually filled with people who see a need – small or seemingly insurmountable – and decide to act. People who understand that they may not be able to fix every problem, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth fixing the problem they have a solution for. They celebrate the individuality of those they serve and revere the bravery it takes to reach out and start the conversation.
Every Lunch Matters Provides Food Vouchers To Hungry Students In LBUSD
My stepsister, Mary Sramek, founded Every Lunch Matters when she realized students were going hungry in LBUSD. The policy of the district is to restrict students who do not have money or credit to a milk & a piece of fruit. She was determined to make it easy to help hungry kids at school. Your donation can be made to your school of choice. If your choice has received enough donations to satisfy the needs of the hungry students at that particular site for a month, your donation will be redirected to the “most needy” category. 100% of your tax deductible donations go towards food vouchers for hungry students. Partnership opportunities available. Email EveryLunchMattersLB@gmail.com.
