During a time when our nation’s children face the stark reality of intense bullying and in-school violence, Touching Heart is on a mission to fill their young hearts with love and compassion for one another. We believe that children can leave an imprint on the world in significant ways when they are taught just how impactful their thoughts and actions are. Touching Heart’s programs are focused on how to enlighten, excite, and educate children about how they can experience the true joy that comes from helping others in need. Young leaders have the unique opportunity to choose their own fundraising event, create a budget, solicit donations, organize volunteers and above all, experience the joy of giving! Touching Heart believes our children will shape the future of our world.
Kids on a Mission (KOAM) is a program that Touching Heart created to show kids they can make an impact on the world around them. Through our KOAM program, kids and teens partner with a Touching Heart coach and work together to organize a fundraising event and awareness for a charity of their choice. The young leaders have generated excellent fundraising ideas and built up various business and social skills in the process for working as a number of a team, marketing their event and managing money. Kids and teens can earn voluneteer hours while building compassion for others and an appreciation for their everyday blessings. Our Kids on a Mission program has helped fund projects for children in need across the globe. It’s a true model of kids helping kids!
