Welcome to www.CreativeKidsCare.com, the
official website of a very unique charity where young people can do really
big things. Creative Kids Care, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization
that is dedicated to improving the lives of children through the creative
acts of children. Every person, from the oldest to the youngest, from
the biggest to the smallest, has the power to make a difference in the
world. That is what Creative Kids Care, Inc. is all about… improving
the world one kid at a time.
Founder & President Rachel Rutstein
we got started: When
our founder, Rachel Rutstein, was only nine years old, she had already
been hard at work helping a bunch of different charities. Although
that was very rewarding for her, Rachel wanted to form one group that
could work together to help kids in all different kinds of tough situations
and she wanted the kids to be in charge. There were charities for
specific causes and charities run by adults but no charities that
kids could run to help other kids. Rachel convinced her parents to
allow her to start Creative Kids Care, Inc. By the time she was ten,
Creative Kids Care, Inc. had become incorporated and received the
government designation as a 501(c) 3 company. This status allows all
donations to Creative Kids Care, Inc. to be fully tax deductible to
the extent allowed by law.
we do it: The Creative Kids Care team raises
funds by creating jewelry and other gifts and selling them at our
events and at events hosted by other children oriented charities.
Then we take the funds we have raised and donate them. The donations
have to be less than $5,000.00, have to specifically improve a child’s
life, and are given only in the form of specific grants to other
501(c) 3 charities dedicated specifically to helping children. For
example, we have helped support a program that teaches kids how
to not to bully other kids, have helped children with chronic and
terminal illnesses, and have helped children with special needs
get adopted who would otherwise be stuck in foster care. The thing
that makes us unique is that we are a group of kids helping other
kids. Kids can make a difference if we work together.
