In 2008 a group of kids spent the morning setting up stuff for a garage sale in their small town of Cardston. The object of the garage sale was to help raise money to donate to Run 4 The Rescue-a human traffiking awareness campaign.
After sweating, selling, baking,bargaining and working hard, something amazing happened. Not only did the group raise 500 dollars, they also realized that even though they were young (6-9 years old), they had the ability to make a huge difference. That day, under the canopy of garage sale sheets and boxes the humanitarian club “Kids Can Change The World” was formed. The next few months KCCW worked hard to raise more money for Run 4 The Rescue and ended up donating more than 2000 dollars that they raised through mowing lawns, holding other garage sales, collecting recycling and selling lemonade.
In the Fall of 2008 the kids regrouped to formally organize their club complete with rules, bylaws, and a presidency. The next project this group choose to raise funds Haiti recover from devastating disaster. After much thought and effort KCCW organized their first “Daddy-Daughter” Valentines dance.
Not only was the event a smashing success for all the dad’s and daughters that choose to participate, KCCW was also able to raise 800 dollars to donate to Haiti.
