Challenge

According to the U.S. Census, in 2013 there were 14.7 million children living in poverty in the U.S. The American Psychological Association reports that impoverished children and teens are at a greater risk for negative outcomes such as poor academic achievement, school dropout, abuse and neglect, behavioral and socio-emotional problems, physical health problems, and developmental delays.

Solution

"Giving Back in Brand New Ways" K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers unites retailers, manufacturers, foundations and individuals to provide people impacted by poverty and tragedy with new merchandise, effectively distributed through a network of agency partners to improve the well-being, self-esteem and dignity of at-risk families and individuals. The idea behind K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers is simple. One caring response to one individual in the crisis of poverty, with one donation of a new piece of clothing or shoes, a toy or a book of their own. It's about one gift, to one individual at a time that builds hope, self-esteem and an opportunity to succeed. Now multiply that by hundreds of thousands, even millions, and you can see how you can help us make a difference in the lives of individuals dealing with poverty everyday.
K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers is committed to improving the well-being, self-esteem and dignity of at-risk children through the donation of brand new merchandise. K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers receives product donations from generous manufacturers and retailers and then distributes them to some of the neediest children in the nation through a network of over 900 local community social service agencies. For every $10 donation, we distribute $100+ of new products to kids in need.

Long-Term Impact

We currently provide new clothing, shoes, books, toys, and baby supplies to some of the neediest children, individuals, and families in the nation. Our goal is to be able to help 50% of children living in poverty within the next five years. We provide clothing to keep them warm and enable them to go to school, books to help educate them, and toys to make their days happier and enhance their self-esteem.
