This Nonprofit Helps Kids Grow $100 Into Thousands For Charity

About This Episode

The nonprofit Kids Boost empowers kids to become philanthropists and social entrepreneurs. With $100 in start-up funding, kids work with a one-on-one coach to raise funds for a charity they love. On average, participants turn the initial $100 into $1,850 for deserving charities.

In the first half of this episode, Kids Boost founder Kristen Williams tells the story of a 12-year-old named Jared, who inspired her to start Kids Boost, and how participants creatively raise money for the causes they care about. In the second half, Kristen shares how everyone — kids and grown-ups alike — can make a difference by doing what they love.
