About Us (well, really about me... Calen)
"Hello, my name is Calen and I started CalenForKids in 2011, when I was seven and a half years old. I would like to tell you a little about myself and how I started my charity...
Let’s see - My favorite colors are purple and blue. I really love my family, playing basketball, and one of my favorite things to do in my spare time is ride my bike to the park. One day while cleaning out my closet, I sorted through my stuffed animals and decided to give most of them away to children who don’t have any to cuddle with. My Mom was so proud of me, and we talked about all of the other things children often go without.
I eventually came up with the idea to start my own charity for less fortunate kids and my Mom helped me put it all together. I thought it would be great to encourage other children to join the cause as well. My parents have taught me that I am so lucky to have many nice things like toys, books, dvd's, and new clothes.
So, now I want to help other children have something to smile about too. All donated items will be given to children and families that are in need of our help. Your donations mean so very much to the children and familes that have so very little.
