With Make a Kid Merry, we hope to empower parents to feel confident about providing Christmas and a positive spirit for their children, while preserving the Christmas essence for our young kids for as long as possible. Our vision is to truly get to know them and impact them through interconnectedness. In short, we want to make sure that "no home is without holiday cheer".
There's plenty of organizations that sponsor children for Christmas and provide gifts. What makes us different? The answer is simple: personalization. Our mission is much different than many organizations. It's not simply to give gifts to children in need, rather to connect with and inspire youth in our community--our medium in doing so just so happens to be gift giving. As two teenagers not far in age from many of the children we sponsor, we know how important it is to make our youth feel seen, heard, and acknowledged in a world that can commonly make us feel otherwise. Make a Kid Merry asks detailed questions to provide the most personalized experience possible, thus leaving kids confident in knowing that they are deeply understood and cared for. That's a mission that cannot be easily replicated, and that's exactly what sets us apart.
