kids to the rescue archives


Thank you for helping us help others this past Valentine's Day!

On Valentine's Day 2/14/06, Kids To The Rescue™ (KTTR) challenged all the 55 million K-12 school aged children in the United States to reach out and help the youngest victims of the hurricane disasters. Their lives are far from normal and our continued support is greatly needed.

KTTR asked each kid to find a way to earn and donate at least $1.00 for this cause. By all of us coming together and giving $1.00 during the month of February, we are helping make a difference in the lives of the kids who need it most ... 55 million dollars is powerful message of love and support! With Valentine's messages and donations still being received, our support continues.

We knew it would take commitment at all levels for this to be successful. With the assistance of the heads of education associations at both the state and national levels, more than 65,000 school principals across the nation were notified of our project! But it takes more than notice to make our commitment a success, it takes action! This national "for kids by kids" campaign to "Send Love South" empowered individual kids to know they can still help and showed the kids down south that they have NOT been forgotten.

Please mark your calendars for February 14, 2007, and join in by extending a piece of your heart and doing your part. Start saving pennies now! Remember that it takes only $1.00 from every kid in the United States to make a huge difference in the lives of kids who need help the most.

Please help us spread the word and be a part of this wonderful campaign that truly expresses the meaning of "love" not only on Valentine's Day, but all year long

Thank you with our whole hearts and have a Happy Valentine's Day!
