Martin Luther King Jr., Day is observed as a national holiday, but did you know that it’s the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service? Some even call it a “day on” instead of a day off. That’s because Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man who dedicated his life to helping others: he stood for peace, social justice, and equal opportunities for everyone. By his words and actions, he has inspired millions of people to be courageous in tackling problems and injustices we see in our communities.

The holidays can be an especially difficult time for thousands of foster kids away from family and friends. Together we can help these children find joy, laughter and spark their creativity by receiving a Kiwi Crate just for them. Not only are these crates packed with fun and tell them someone cared about them but they also spark creativity and can bring joy back to learning, giving them confidence to find their strengths in the classroom.
Thanks to our amazing subscribers, aka YOU, and in partnership with Ticket to Dream Foundation, we will donate $25,000 worth of KiwiCo crates to foster kids this holiday season. As you know, the gift of a KiwiCo crate is much more than just a toy; for these children, it’s an experience that sparks creativity and brings joy to learning — and a reminder that someone cares about them.
Educational Stats for Foster Youth:
- Only 50 % of foster youth graduate high school
- Foster children repeat a grade twice as often
- With each home move foster children lose 3-6 months of educational readiness
- There are over 400,000 foster children in the US
- 1 child enters foster care every 2 minutes
Thank you so much for sending the delight of a KiwiCo experience to the loved ones in your life and for helping us to deliver that delight to thousands more kids with Ticket to Dream!
