Take a magnificent fundraising organization, add enthusiastic, energetic kids to the mix, and in one situation alone, $1,600 was raised for Kapiolani Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. One shining example of creativity: The Haunted Trolley Tour. Here's a quick video overview of what two motivated Hawaiian teenagers accomplished for the center's ICO: Kidz For A Cause is an organization of kids who are drawn together by a desire to help kids in need. Combining their positivity, talent and energy, KFAC puts on awesome FUNraising events powered by kids to raise money for non-profits that benefit kids. What sets KFAC apart? From concept until completion, no matter how large the task, all aspects of each campaign are handled by kids. The Board of Directors and Junior Board of Directors lead and inspire hundreds of kids from across Oahu. No matter what fun idea KFAC comes up with each year, the goal is always the same: to put on the best campaign ever, share the beneficiary charity’s mission with the community, and raise as much money as possible for the non-profit . It goes both ways, since Kidz develop leadership, teamwork and organizational skills and learn lasting philanthropic values along the way. This year’s ThinkTank 2016 FUNraising campaign benefits the frail newborns of Kapiolani Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. ThinkTank challenges each participating kid to come up with and execute his or her own creative FUNraising idea, with all donations going to the NICU. ThinkTank’s goal is to raise $150,000 by Nov. 10!
