Kids Helping Kids




"When I was growing up, collecting money for UNICEF on Halloween was very important to me. I really believed that when you carried around your little orange box, you were helping other children," says Oscar-nominated actress and mom Julianne Moore. These memories came back to her after a 2008 trip to Appalachia with Save the Children, which is dedicated to fighting poverty and illiteracy in America. Determined to involve the next generation, Moore founded the Save the Children Valentine's Day Card Contest. "I was looking for another holiday that kids could participate in by donating their time and money to help other kids. Valentine's Day is huge for children. It's about friendship. I wanted to extend that to being friends with everybody in America." For this years contest, children from across the country the country  drew Valentine's Day cards then voted on their favorites. The top five winners are available for purchase at k2kusa.org for $25 a box (24 cards), with all proceeds going to Save the Children. "Its a way of sending money where it's needed, Moore says, "and teaching children that the little things they do can really make a difference."
