Interested in using your artistic abilities to brighten a patient's day? Then this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! Whether you prefer hand making cards or using a digital platform to design them, you will be making an impact on the lives of kids with cancer. Kids with cancer spend majority of their lives fighting a horrible disease, exuding bravery no adult could match. Consistent and extensive hospital stays are usual, and cards go a long way in bringing c heer and offering a distraction to kids with cancer and their families who are staying in the hospital. *Service hours will be rewarded
Cancer Kids First (CKF) aims to help pediatric cancer patients experience a better childhood. We supply patients with toy and book donations, cards, coloring pages, care packages, and more. We strive to normalize the hospital environment, inspire patients to keep fighting, and spark some joy within their lives through our many programs. Join us in putting kids with cancer first.
Since its founding 1 year ago, Cancer Kids First, a youth-led organization, has donated over 670 toys/books to hospitals and individual pediatric cancer patients, raised over $4k, and mailed 350+ cards to cancer hospitals throughout the US - and we're only getting started! We have also been featured in news publications such as ThriveGlobal and Medium.
