Dear Editor:

Kids for Kids https://www.mindfulkidsforkids.com is mobilizing our youth throughout SPF and Union County to stop world hunger.  All funds raised through the TIE DYE AWAY WORLD HUNGER - KIDS HELPING KIDS initiative will go to the YWCA Union County.  This fantastic organization brings PEACE, shelter, case management and program services including a year long therapeutic art program to families effected by domestic violence. 

While there are many worthy causes in our world right now during COVID, our kids have chosen to support local mothers and their children who have been impacted by DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.  To that end, we are not just "TIE DYING AWAY WORLD HUNGER," we are stomping out "VIOLENCE IN HOMES."  Stomp, stomp!

Sign Up for Scotch Plains/Fanwood Newsletter
Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

Please join our movement by tie-dying a sweatshirt, t-shirt or tank and dropping at the home of Kids for Kids founder Annette Ferrigno, 1174 Maple Hill Road, Scotch Plains, NJ.  We also have ordered shirts in bulk and are available for pick up. 

Follow attached link for a homemade tie dye recipe www.favecrafts.com/Tie-Dye/How-to-Tie-Dye-a-Shirt-with-Food-Coloring. After tie- dying your attire, we will have logo imprinted on shirt of choice and will return to you to wear and raise awareness. 

Please consider one extra shirt for donation or make it two or three!  You can also help us sell the attire via your network of friends and family.  Let's keep our kids active and empower them during a time in which so much has been taken away.  Not only will it occupy them, but it will give them purpose and connection towards a bigger cause. This can quite possibly, also save lives.  For many of our youth are impacted by various mental health issues that need to be addressed NOW.  Now that's a 2 for 1 and more!
