20+ YEARS OF KIDSAKE: SERVING COMMUNITY
Since 2000, KidSAKE has created and participated in events and outreach locally and abroad designed to build community, promote better living, and provide esteem building activities for young people. Some of these projects are: building a playground, supporting a soup kitchen, and providing scholarship funding or assistance to individuals.
KidSAKE is now poised to fine tune its efforts in order to focus on supporting projects that promote and explore the story of ones' self and connection to community using the four pillars of self: heart, might, mind, and strength, and approaching projects through the lens of heritage & legacy. It is our thinking that emphasizing these areas will help children of all ages understand their value and the importance of the role they play in creating a better world in which to live.
Committed to arts-integration and community involvement, KidSAKE is excited to bring projects and programs to your community that support this mission and is currently partnering with Art for Good and it's latest production and immersive, interactive installation: The Traveler's Journey: Passport to Freedom.

Give to Live Campaign
In forty days, data shows that new habits can be born. Good habits can transform lives. Yes, lives! KidSAKE is launching the Give to Live Campaign to encourage people to develop the mindset and habit of generous giving. Imagine what the world would be like if each one of us helped one other person (just one!), each of us at the same time, lifting up another. That type of positive energy would transform the world into cities of light!
KidSAKE is partnering with Sophie Press to sell Give to Live kits. Each kit contains 40 items to give and and a few things to keep to bless you for giving. The kits launch April 1st. Just in time for Easter, graduations, mother's day or an occasion!
Visit: www.sophiepress.com for more details. (Forthcoming)
KidSAKE and other sponsors support Red Wagon Artist, Jenny Rogers, in semester artist residency at Erickson Elementary and Eastern Michigan University.

Holds a story. Let us help you tell yours.
"Personal stories are the treasures gathered along life's journey. When written, illustrated, and shared with others, they hold the great power of transformation: Children who discover and share their stories finally realize...they are not invisible, and that is a marvelous thing."
