Our Winter Survival Campaign
for Homeless Kids in the USA and Abroad

Hundreds of homeless children die each winter from
exposure to subzero temperatures in the world’s inner cities.
Your donation of just $100 provides one of our survival kits to a
homeless child out in the cold. Saving a life can be that simple!

We’re well on our way to our goal of raising $30,000

We’ve reached 37% so far.

Please donate now, and help these kids survive!

The sheer number of homeless and forsaken kids today is truly staggering. In some inner cities they number in the tens of thousands. They sleep in train or bus stations, under bridges, in filthy alleys, in the basements of abandoned buildings, and even underground in sewers. These kids suffer from exposure to extreme subzero temperatures during the winter months. Every year, local authorities find young children frozen to death. Many of them are under 10 years old.

We supply survival kits to street kids who are out in the cold. Your donation of just $100 provides one of these survival kits to a homeless child. See what’s in our survival kits below.

Donate a survival kit now, or even better get a group together at school, at college, or at work, and provide 5, 10, or more kits to those unfortunate kids who are out in the cold.

What’s in our survival kits for street kids

We are making great use of the amazing, patented OMNI-HEAT® reflective fabric produced by the Columbia Sportswear Company of Portland, Oregon. This remarkable material is used in the manufacture of the weather-proof jackets, mittens, and sleeping bags we supply to street kids out in the cold. The highly breathable fabric’s lining is embedded with small, shiny dots that reflect the kids’ body heat back onto them, similar to the shiny interior of a Thermos flask.
