"Giving to a complete stranger who we will never meet,
in hopes we have inspired their lives".
This is a better sweet story for me. My first job as a 15 year old boy was with the Boys & Girls Club so to be able to say Kids give to Kids has partnered up with the Boys & Girls Club makes me feel so blessed. I hope for others to join our vission. God Bless the World.
Children have some of the most open and pure hearts on this planet.
At Kids Give to Kids (Kspire) we believe in the highest level of hope and compassion in every person. We provide an opportunity for children to practice generosity.
There is nothing better than giving from the heart.
The way it works: Children donate the toys they no longer play with through our App. Other children then choose from thousands of shared toys as gifts.
When a child drops off a toy at a participating restaurant or business he/she will receive a free kid's meal or discount.
When a child picks up the selected toy at a participating restaurant or business he/she will receive a free kid's meal discount.
Participating local restaurants and businesses will be the drop-off and pick-up locations for these gifts.
Each child will also be able to earn points that can be redeemed for prizes.

I created Kids Give to Kids (Kspire) from my heart because of my own experience of being brought up in foster care and a single-parent home.
As a child, I didn't have the choice of the toys that I received from others. Although I was very grateful, I simply had to accept what was given.
Through working with Toys for Tots for five years, I helped collect and distribute thousands of toys and loved every moment of it. The children are always appreciative, but most did not receive what they wanted because they were not picked specifically for them by those who know them.
I feel Kids Give to Kids (Kspire) creates a more personal experience because the receiving child chooses their gift. The sharing child gives their once-loved toy knowing their gift was selected.
I feel so blessed to be where I am today. I hope to show others how easy it is to love complete strangers, not to judge or look down upon anyone, and to give with an open heart.
God Bless The World!
