Support Kids Play International !

Support Kids Play International

I met Kirsten Risko of 810 Creative when I gave her a tour of New Jersey’s Valley Arts District. We have remained friends, and I was glad to say she moved to Orange in the beautiful Linc spaces off Main Street. She is traveling to Rwanda on a volunteer trip to support Kids Play International. $20 can supply kids with sneakers, backpacks and other gear needed for the program. This is a great effort to promote gender equality in an area so deeply affected by genocide.

BENEFITING: Kids Play International

 THE STORY:

Kids Play International is a non-profit founded by an Olympic Athlete with the goal to use sport to promote gender equity in countries affected by genocide. KPI has two successful programs in Rwanda and Cambodia. I will be traveling to Rwanda this summer. I would love to bring 250 pairs of sneakers with me, but we all know the airlines charge per pound for checked bags. For a donation of $20, you will be providing a pair or sneakers and items such as socks, backpacks, sports gear to kids participating in this program. KPI provides a unique Let’s Play Fair program that is mixed gender, multi sport, and embedded long term into communities. KPI’s model has been designed to work deeply within a single community over an extended period of time so that we may catalyze lasting and sustainable change in a concentrated geographic area. If you love this concept as much as me, you could also opt to sponsor a child. You will not only cover their participation in the program, but also their health benefits.
