Give Change to Make Change!

April 5th, 2013

Flying Kites is committed to raising the standard of care available to some of the world’s poorest children. The company was founded in 2007 when a small group of volunteers built a Home and Leadership Academy for orphaned children in the slopes of the Aberdares Mountains in Kinangop Kenya, providing high quality residential care to Kenya’s orphaned and abused children. With an emphasis on exemplary care, education and compassion

Flying Kites gives impoverished children the resources they need to build exceptional lives, families, and communities. To support these children, our team is working with Flying Kites to raise funds on their behalf. Our fundraising project, Give change to make change!, seeks to support Flying Kites in providing a supportive home, education, and the resources needed to build exceptional lives for underprivileged children in Kenya by generating a minimum of $200 to sponsor a child for the duration of one year.

The team will collaborate with local cafes and eateries to run a collection jar campaign. Collection jars will be placed on the counters by the registers so patrons can donate the change from their purchase. We will put out change jars at Chequers Cafe and Peet’s Coffee and Tea at the Boston University Medical Campus, Andre’s Cafe on 811 Harrison Ave., and the Crosstown Building on 811 Massachusetts Ave. The jars will be placed at the counters from Monday, March 25th to Friday, April 12th.
