It's time to spread the word that fundraising is fun, and that charity is essential for all children" Andrew Moss, President of Booster, LLC
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 10, 2016
Booster, LLC (http://www.booster.com), the social fundraising site that makes it easy to raise awareness and money for people and causes we care about, today announced the launch of B-Cause: Kids - a national awareness initiative to celebrate the next generation of American philanthropists, and to inspire more kids to be generous and giving.
“Since kids are our most important asset, Americans need to do whatever we can to ensure their well-being, to help them to become well-rounded citizens, and to teach them to give back,” said Andrew Moss, President of Booster, LLC. “To celebrate that conviction: May is Kids’ Month on Booster.com - time to spread the word that fundraising is fun, and that charity is essential for all children.”
B-Cause: Kids -- Honoring Kids Making A Difference
In May 2016, Booster is honoring and showcasing extraordinary kids (from 7-to-16 years of age) who are standing up for people and causes they care about.
Drawn from communities across the U.S., these Kids Making A Difference have successfully designed their own custom t-shirts, then sold and promoted them through online t-shirt fundraising campaigns.
They’re running campaigns to raise awareness and money for a range of charities including childhood cancer research, ending homelessness and hunger, rescuing sexually exploited and enslaved children, supporting childhood literacy, protecting endangered African wildlife, and other worthy causes.
While thousands of Americans of all ages have launched t-shirt fundraisers, here’s fourteen cool kids who’ve recently designed cause-branded shirts and are now running live campaigns:

“Since Booster.com launched under three years ago, we’ve been amazed and impressed that elementary, middle and high school students across the country, are passionate about giving back and are converting their charitable beliefs into action by running Booster t-shirt fundraisers,” said Andrew Moss. “Research shows that children who begin volunteering in their youth are twice as likely to volunteer as adults! Looking ahead, we hope that more grownups will follow the example of these compassionate and caring kids by launching campaigns of their own.”
