PRESS RELEASE: Assemble art kits, skateboards and/or bikes right at home, to be donated to local children in foster care, through Can’d Aid’s partnership with Royal Family KIDS.
Do-goodery at Your Doorstep, benefiting Royal Family KIDS — Can’d Aid, a nationally recognized nonprofit focused on people powered do-goodery, is delivering an opportunity to give back to kids in your community in foster care — right to your doorstep.
Get some friends together, or your co-workers and put together art kits, assemble skateboards or build bikes then donate them to local children in foster care through Can’d Aid’s local partnership with Royal Family KIDS’ chapters in Colorado. Rally your family, your neighbors, your co-workers, your business or organization (either virtually or safely distanced) and get in on the do-goodery today.
Looking for a way to give back right now? Eating out less these days, looking to give back with those savings? Maybe you are a business or organization looking to do some good for your neighborhood? Our Do-Goodery at Your Doorstep program gives back to your local community while continuing and supporting safe social distancing measures for all.
“Our partnership with Royal Family KIDS is instrumental,” says Diana Ralston, Executive Director at Can’d Aid. “Having always been focused on providing moments that matter, Royal Family KIDS transforms communities by interrupting cycles of neglect, abuse and abandonment of children in the foster care system through mentoring and summer camps.”
“We are looking to expand this remarkable program beyond Colorado and we’re very proud to be able to provide a healthy, creative and active outlet for a child in foster care through Can’d Aid’s Do-Goodery program,” says Paul Martin, CEO of Royal Family KIDS. ‘Making a major difference in a foster child’s life, many of whom have been adversely affected by stay-at-home measures, is our number one priority during these difficult times.”
HOW DOES IT WORK? Learn More & Sign Up
Can’d Aid ships everything you need — including equipment, helmets, tools and step-by-step instructions.
- YOU and your team carve out time to build the bikes, skateboards or assemble art kits.
- Once complete, the Can’d Aid team will help coordinate your donation drop-off. Please note, you will be responsible for delivering the supplies to a local recipient organization.
- Can kids help? Certainly! This is a great activity for children to get involved and give back. However, the bikes and skateboards require tools and sharp objects, so adult supervision is necessary.
Can’d Aid has created several projects to choose from with varying quantities and price points. All funds are a donation to Can’d Aid, directly supporting the execution of this program.
