All Our Kids Foundation
Working Towards a Brighter Future
We believe that free school lunch is a necessity for our kids to learn and develop at a normal pace, but in order to achieve this we need your help. With your assistance, we can fill the governmental gap and create positive memories for children in need.
Saving the children in our communities is the greatest desire at AOK and we put all of our efforts into raising funds and promoting initiatives that can positively serve the children in our communities. Action needs to be taken to protect our children from the indignity of hunger and we have created this foundation to inform the public about this need for school lunches and other essentials.
Our goal is to provide funds for a free lunch for children that do not qualify for traditional assistance.
Supporting our initiative would mean the world to us as it will lead to putting a smile on a young face. We aim to fill our schools with round tummies and rounder faces and every form of support counts. Nothing is small to count as help.
You may contact us to find out how you can help to ease the hunger pains of a young child.
All Our Kids Foundation at a Glance
A Bit of Background
Here at AOK, we are driven by a single goal - to do our part in making the world a better place for our children. Children are innocent and should always be protected especially from situations for which they have no control.
We came together to create this charity because we strongly believe:
No child should have to suffer for any reason.
Empowering communities is the best way to support our children.
Well-rounded and developed children are the greatest gifts to a community.
Helping our children in need can make a difference and to fill our communities with love, peace, and joy.
Helping children in need is our life goal and we have studied the most effective methods to facilitate this endeavor. We have put together a dedicated team who are true to this cause and want to work hard to make positive change. We make all our decisions based on comprehensive empirical studies and high-quality data evaluation. Our true aim is to build productive relationships within our communities and spread positivity with all our pursuits.
Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
The state of being hungry can be one of the greatest forms of distractions. It removes concentration, causes listlessness, and can lead to unnecessary aggressiveness in human beings. According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, 1.4 million children go hungry every day. This means that 1.4 million children who should be active in school, concentrating, or playing happily cannot do so because they are being ravaged by hunger. It is a state of being that we at AOK have long thought to be grossly unfair, as children cannot be held responsible for themselves or their well-being. We decided to come together to develop this foundation to solve the epidemic of child hunger.
To properly deal with this challenge, we needed a team of problem-solvers who are willing to go the extra mile and take risks to create solutions. We created All Our Kids Foundation out of a strong desire to inspire and support the children in our community. It is not enough to watch in silence and lament about a situation, we as a people have to spring forward and take action if we ever want to see positive change. There is a great need for change in our society, and we believe that with this step we have taken, we can bridge the gap between the abundance of food and the children who are in desperate need of nourishment.
Our goal is to provide cash assistance to public schools for all students to have a free breakfast and lunch. We want to help all the kids who are unfortunately not included in our government school lunch program. The government has a system in place to provide free and reduced lunch but only for children who meet certain criteria. We aim to provide funds for the children that do not qualify for traditional school lunch assistance from the government.
Upon expansion, we hope to start providing other necessities like weekend meals, school supplies, coats, graduation fees and a host of others. Our greatest joy would be to see every child succeed. We want to see happy kids who are fully active and participatory. We aim to provide proper funding for a balanced diet and adequate nutrition for our kids and inform our communities of their responsibility towards these innocent children. We hope we can convince our community members to donate or volunteer to help feed our children. Contact us to learn more and get involved.
