KidSAKE: 20 Years of Caring
Doing what we can: back to our roots
KidSAKE Hero Ribbon, featured on the KidSAKE Care Cards
As the KidSAKE Foundation journeys through its twentieth year - and as the world battles a shared enemy, COVID-19 - we, like many, stop to reflect, regroup and respond to the needs arising from this conflict.
KidSAKE began as a response to a United States Airman (son/brother/ parent/friend) writing home to his family about the Airmen’s humanitarian efforts and visits to orphanages in central Honduras. This Airman’s sister, a good friend of mine, shared his letters and we felt moved to reach out to our communities in Tennessee, Indiana and beyond to find ways to support our military humanitarians—both in their work as volunteers and to encourage and thank them for their service. Our purple heart with helping hands logo is a nod to their heroic and selfless acts and our commitment to do the same.
The seeds of service that we nurtured then - and projects we have undertaken since - have born much fruit; changing lives through involvement in the arts and partnerships that have brought universities, communities, and countries together in meaningful and powerful ways.
We recognize the power of - and need for - connection. So, we have partnered with Sophie Press to create greeting cards for you to thank, celebrate and inspire the heroes and loved ones in your life.
Wishing you hope, health and strength in this season,
Founder and Executive Director
The KidSAKE Foundation
KidSAKE Care Cards
KidSAKE partners with Sophie Press
Sophie Press, an independent publishing imprint, has partnered with The KidSAKE Foundation to offer the KidSAKE Care Cards and KidSAKE Care Card Kits in order to provide encouragement and support for everyday heroes who are making a difference in our lives through extraordinary acts of service and sacrifice.
Though these cards were inspired by events of today, they are timeless in their message of strength, hope, and thankfulness.
