Two New Charities Addedposted by Jennic on May 2nd, 2008
As many of you already know, KangarooBoo is very committed to doing good things in the world of children. KangarooBoo donates a portion of each and every sale to a children-related charity organization right there during our checkout process. One charity is chosen as the default charity, from our list of pre-approved charities. They all get rotated from time to time so every one of them receive extra exposure and funds. (Remember, you as the customer can change which charity the portion from your purchase goes to, from your account under My Stuff / orders. Please ask us if you are unsure about how to make that change.)
We are proud to announce the addition of two new charities to our pre-approved charity list.
City at Peace – New York
CP-NY is a local chapter of a national organization that works with teenagers to empower them to create safe, healthy, peaceful lives and communities. The program is a combination of activities that examine the interrelationship of the problems and conflicts that youth care about, and often suffer from. It also develops their capacity for addressing these issues. By using the performing arts as a vehicle, CP-NY is developing the next generation of engaged community leaders.
Bosom Buddies – Cape Town
Bosom Buddies is a non-profit Christian organization started and run by a mom to 3 kids. She was both frustrated and horrified at some of the treatments taking place at state-run hospitals where newborns and new moms receive next to nothing after labor & delivery. Bosom Buddies strive to provide a diaper bag to each and every new mom, filled with basic essentials for baby and mom. They want to ensure that no baby goes home without adequately clothed and each mom feels that their community do care and the birth is recognized and celebrated.
