Kids Helping Kids

Peter Pan Birthday Club: Become a club member by throwing your own Peter Pan Birthday Party. Rather than receive gifts, kids ask for monetary donations to the Children's Hospital.
Change Harvest: Organize a "Change Challenge" for your school or class with a goal of scoring the most points at the end of the game, typically lasting for one week. Classes, grades or teachers and students can compete against one another to see who can reach the highest score.
Caps for the Cure: Organize a Caps Day at your school – students get to wear a hat to school by donating to your fundraising effort, typically lasting for one day. Classes, grades or teachers and students can compete against one another to see who can reach the highest score.
A-Thons: Participants register and ask for sponsors to pledge money. You can try one of these popular a-thons: Dance Marathon, swing-a-thon, bowl-a-thon, walk-a-thon, hop-a-thon or create one of your own!
Be Brave, Go Bald: Shave your head in recognition of the challenges faced by kids with cancer. Set a goal and encourage your friends, family and local businesses to sponsor you by pledging money.
