Kids Helping Kids
Liv believed that kids had the ability to #bethgood and make a difference in the world of pediatric cancer. Even while fighting her own battle with cancer, she was concerned about other children going through the same thing. During the summer, while she was sick, Liv organized her first event and raised over $10,000 for pediatric cancer research. That is how Liv like a Unicorn came to be.
We believe that no matter what your age, you are never too young to make a difference. Are you a kid looking to help? Here are some ideas:
Download and color our Unicorn Cards, which are included in each Unicorn Box
Organize a drive for Unicorn Box items
Collect toiletries for our toiletry kits
Host a lemonade stand
make and sell bracelets
Have a birthday coming up? Ask for donations instead of presents!
Or, come up with your own idea!
Meet our friend Giuliana from G's Giving Gowns!
We are thrilled to be able to partner with Giuliana and G's Giving Gowns through our Unicorn Box program. Every box sent with include one of her beautiful hospital gowns. Giuliana is the true definition of #kidshelpingkids
"My name is Giuliana and I am 11 years old living in Freehold, New Jersey. I learned how to sew during the summer of 2020 at a local fashion school camp. I received my very own sewing machine for my 10th birthday. I have continued taking group sewing classes weekly working on small projects.
I was inspired to create my first handmade hospital gown in the spring of 2021 by my little cousin who is a pediatric cancer survivor. She was only ten months old when she was diagnosed and she spent 9 months living in the hospital undergoing treatments following her surgery. My family had ordered a few custom made hospital gowns from an online shop for her that were Disney themed for her to wear. The gowns were bright and cheerful.
I decided now that I learned to sew on my own that I would create gowns for other young, brave children and donate them."
Be Kind, Like Kendall!
Meet our friend Kendall - a cancer warrior whose brave battle continues to inspire others to make a difference! Kendall was a smart and fun loving first grader when she was diagnosed with multiple brain tumors at the age of 7. She had a heart of gold and was always so kind and friendly to everyone she met. Sadly, her battle with cancer was short and fierce, but her memory lives on and continues to inspire others to "be the good". Kendall had a love of learning and she wanted to be an elementary school teacher when she grew up, just like her mom. She wanted to make a difference in kids' lives every day. We can help honor her loving memory through our Kids Helping Kids program by showing kids how to be "kind like Kendall".
As our School Outreach Coordinator, Kendall's mom Kerri, would love to help you come up with a plan to get students in your school involved. Some ideas include: a "Uni-Coins" for kindness penny war or a school wide walk-a-thon that can raise money. A Unicorn Box supply drive can be capped off with a family fun night where families can stuff boxes and create our unicorn cards, to help show kids that they too can make a difference.
To learn more, you can email Kerri directly.
