Grant-giving charity Cash for Kids helps to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people within our communities. Their network of charities operate across 22 areas of the UK to provide support for children who need it most. This includes children and young people who have been affected by illness, poverty, neglect, and those who have additional needs. The charity works with grassroots organisations that all aim to make a difference to the lives of young people and their families. Believing that all children should be able to achieve their potential, live life to the fullest, and express their individuality, the charity raises millions of pounds each year, which goes towards bringing happiness, hope and healing to young people. In 2019 alone, Cash for Kids raised over £20.9 million, which went towards supporting over 1 million children.
Cash for Kids holds regular fundraising events throughout the year which aim to raise money for unwell and disadvantaged children in local communities. Their grants are distributed throughout the UK and are awarded to community groups, schools, charitable organisations and individual cases.
The Cash For Kids Appeal
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Cash for Kids have recently launched their appeal to support families who have been affected. Many families on low incomes or on the brink of poverty will be feeling the financial strain as a result of the pandemic, which in turn can have an impact on their children. Currently, Cash for Kids are supporting these families by building funds to help cover basic essentials such as food and heating. You can help the charity make a difference to these families in need by voting for them in our July charity poll! Vote for Cash for Kids this July to help them be in with a chance of winning 20% of this month’s profits. Thank you!
