Friday Feel Good: News about Kids Doing Good

News about kids doing good

News About Kids Doing Good

 

At Start A Snowball we love kids doing good! Our main goal is to help inspire kids to take on their own community service passions. One of the best ways to inspire kids to do good, it to show them stories of other kids doing good.

Each Friday we will highlight news about kids doing good and that have done amazing work through their service projects. Please read these stories about kids doing good and be inspired to help kids do good. Additionally please check out these other stories of our very own grantees that are doing good.

Please consider applying for a grant if you know a kid that needs support for their community service project.
