  • Caps for Kids
    "Providing needy children with cozy hats to keep them warm is what Caps for Kids is all about. Nearly one million caps, along with other children's accessories, have been knitted and crocheted by volunteers since the program began. The hats are given to non-profit, non denominational agencies in the communities of the donors."
  • Color A Smile
    Color A Smile collects crayon drawings from school children. Every month they distribute these drawings to nursing homes, Meals on Wheels Programs, and individuals all across the country. Their goal is to make people smile!
  • DoSomething.org
    DoSomething.org offers grants, including the Plum Youth Grant which awards $500 weekly to youths 25 and under from across the U.S. and Canada. (For the Plum Youth Grant, see Grant Eligibility Guidelines for details.)
  • Make a Child Smile (MACS)
    The MACS mission is "to provide emotional and financial support to families whose children suffer from chronic or life-threatening illnesses and also give those who visit the MACS website the opportunity to participate by sending mail to the children."

    "Hundreds of 'net surfers, schools, service organizations, girls/boys scouts and church groups use the Make A Child Smile site as a philanthropic project where they can send cards, letters and small gifts to the featured children and their siblings through postal mail."
  • My Stuff Bags Foundation
    The My Stuff Bags Foundation provides comfort and a message of hope to abused and neglected children entering crisis and foster care through its unique program, My Stuff Bags. Touch the heart of these traumatized children who arrive at crisis centers and foster homes with no "stuff" of their own.
  • Project Linus
    It's easy to help Project Linus. Simply make a blanket and donate it to your local chapter of Project Linus or Project Linus National Headquarters. Your blanket will be given to a child in need. Click on "Be a Blanketeer."
  • Spread the Bread
    Spread the Bread is a community service program "that encourages our world, especially our youth, to bake any kind of bread and spread that bread to honor our heroes and to help those in need."
  • St. Jude's Ranch for Children
    Help St. Jude's Ranch for Children with their Campbell's Soup Label Program by sending in UPCs from eligible Campbell's Soup Products (even Goldfish Crackers, V8 Juices, Prego Pasta Sauces, and other foods qualify!). For every 1,500,000 eligible Campbell's Soup Product family UPCs they receive, Campbell's will purchase a new Dodge minivan for the Ranch. The minivans are used to transport children to and from school, appointments, and extracurricular activities. Meeting the transportation needs of nearly 80 children of all ages can be a daunting task requiring many vans. It is only with your participation in this program that they can continue to provide for this need.
