Kids for Kids, Dancing for Life, Inc.
Kids for Kids, Dancing for Life, Inc. is a non-proit fund raising 501(C)3 corporation dedicated to raising funds for children in medical or financial need. Established in 1994, to date our group has raised over $1 million for local charities. This has been accomplished through the combination of adult and youth volunteers and the remarkable generosity of our business community.
Kids for Kids first event was a single day dance competition held in April 1994. Over the years, that competition has evolved into weekend long dance competitions, holiday benefit shows, toy collections, charity dinners, shows, walks, and much more.
Kids for Kids does a lot more than fund raising it shapes the lives of young people who dedicate themselves to helping other children. The organization fosters a spirit of compassion and devotion that our children will carry into their adult lives. Several of our current board members began in 1994 as young adults with the drive to do whatever was necessary. Now adults, they still have that same drive and are role models for the young children that help us today. We are proud of these incredible people and know that they will take this organization beyond any goals that are set. It is truly the belief of everyone involved with Kids for Kids, Dancing for Life, Inc. that if there is to be a better future, it lies in our efforts to rear children who understand the importance of reaching out to those less fortunate. Learning at an early age that giving of one's self for the betterment of humanity is not just an act of kindness, but rather a part of life.
Why we do what we do...
Our goal at Kids for Kids is to be the catalyst that helps to erase the homelessness, illness and other struggles that many children are faced with. We rely on the generosity of businesses and individuals to accomplish this goal. We invite you to join our crusade and help us to erase the pain, hunger and poverty that have become such a common part of the lives of so many children in our world today.
