K.I.D.S. makes a huge difference in the lives of needy children all over the world.

We provide new clothes, shoes, toys, baby items and books to millions of kids.

GOODS DOING GOOD

In 2012, K.I.D.S. distributed $112 million worth of brand-new goods around the world. That merchandise made a difference in the lives of 5.2 million children. From children’s hospitals in Sri Lanka to libraries in San Francisco... From kids living in garbage dumps in Honduras to kids going to elementary schools in Harlem, K.I.D.S. is impacting more children than ever.

K.I.D.S. Local Programs

K.I.D.S. doesn’t just drop off truckloads of merchandise. We make sure that every donation is part of an already existing program that educates, heals, and improves the lives of children. The K.I.D.S. national network has grown to reach over 1,000 communities.

Disaster Relief

From day one K.I.D.S. has responded to natural disasters. New strategies help us respond more quickly, more efficiently and with more product. From tornadoes in Alabama to wildfires in Colorado to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, K.I.D.S. delivered $15 million worth of aid to natural disaster victims, the most ever in one year.

97% of All Donations Go Directly to Children and Families

Our consistently low overhead expenses (UNDER 3%) of the value of the product and cash donations collected in 2011 provides the extensive programming, administration and efficient distribution network that connects the brand name products from nearly a thousand companies to more than one thousand social service agencies across the country and around the world.

We're award winning

K.I.D.S. is recognized by the Better Business Bureau, Charity Navigator and Forbes as one of the highest ranked and most efficient charities in America. Consumers Digest now ranks K.I.D.S. as the #1 Humanitarian Charity in the United States.
