Kids 4 Kids

Kids Helping Light Up another Kid's Life

The Kids 4 Kids Program is designed for children to use their creativity and imagination to raise money for other kids. Funds raised go to our Adapted Bike Program, which provides kids with physical limitations the opportunity to ride a bike that is customized to their needs.

Become Our Ambassador

Thanks to kids like you, other kids will be able to experience the joy of riding a bike! Through a bake sale, birthday party, or dress up day at school, it is fun and easy to make a difference in another kid’s life.

 

We thought of some ideas to get you started!

Crazy Hat Day Charge your set amount for students in your school to wear a crazy hat to school—the crazier, the better!

Lemonade Stand Setup a lemonade stand in your neighbourhood—or maybe a hot chocolate stand depending on the time of year.

Sell Artwork Let your creative juices flow and make any form of artwork to sell in your school or community.

Bake Sale Bake up some yummy treats and sell them at the next school or neighbourhood event.

Birthday Party Suggest that your family and friends make a donation to CP Kids & Families instead of bringing a present.
