Giving hope and joy to help heal children in their time of need. Inspire others to create a culture of kindness and mutual support in our communities.
Kidzz Helping Kidzz is a youth-led organization that formed as a result of Zach Darner’s (age 13) passion to help other kids in need. His passion developed seven years ago when his infant brother was quite ill and in the hospital. Zach desired to "give back" to children, brightening their lives with new toys at their bedsides. Since 2016, Zach has led six successful toy drives resulting in delivering nearly 30,000 toys which were given to children at St. Michael Medical Center, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. His efforts have inspired other children who have volunteered their time. In 2018 these children (ages 10-18) formed the Advisory Board of Kidzz Helping Kidzz. Our Advisory Board leads the activities of the organization and has developed multiple programs over the years to help kids in need. One member of our Advisory Board shared: "Our work teaches us the importance of giving and sets a good example to other kids about the importance of giving back to our community."
