BECAUSE THEY'RE KIDS RELIEF ORGANIZATION
Help Us Help Them
BECAUSE THEY'RE KIDS RELIEF ORGANIZATION is a new charity designed to provide children with the services they need. We will be going into the communities and working with children and their families one on one. We want to see what their needs are first hand and help them accordingly, whether it's with food, clothing, counseling, or referrals. Today In Toronto today we have many children that require our assistance. Every day there are more and more children who are either living or hanging out on the streets of Toronto. The number of children living outdoors is shocking and they are getting younger and younger all of the time. There are many children under the age of 15 out there now. A lot of these children are begging for money or worse. There are young girls eleven or twelve years old selling their bodies to the guy who drives by. These are things we need to change. These children should be home in bed at night, not prostituting their bodies, to get food, clothes, for the basic necessities of life that so many people take for granted. It is our job as members of the community to help these children get back to where they are supposed to be. A single parent today with two children under the age of ten takes home . dollars per month. I will do a breakdown of a months expendatures so you can see why we do indeed REQUIRE a food program in the low income areas. two bedroom minimum telephone cable food per month 900 +40 +40 +350 1130 -920 -210 As you can see she has a very hard chance of survival on the allotted amount the government gives her. We went to the 416 food bank and asked what a mother would receive for 2 children under ten and this is what we were told they would receive: 4 cans of soup 1 box powdered milk 1 can of tomatoes or pasta sauce 1 box of crackers 2 jars of peanut butter 4 cans of beans 4 cans of zoodles 2 packages of kraft dinner 1 loaf of bread. As you can see yes you can survive on these foods but there is little to no nutritional value. Growing Problems We have a growing problem with children stealing clothing from other children. Our goal is to provide the basic necessities of life, therefore establishing a better place for kids to live. There are many things in the world that scare children; we need to eliminate some of the problems that are so abundant in our society today. CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE. Send an email Our Solutions Our hope today is to inform you about a new initiative that will establish a food program in the low income areas in order to feed the children of Canada who desperately need our support. Mr. Silverman of City Pulse did a five part serial on starving kids in Guiana and the Canadians who provided assistance. This is great in its own right, however, we have starving kids in our own city who need our help. Our government recognizes that an important factor that contributes to our children's learning is a full stomach. Therefore they implemented a breakfast program for some students in the schools. However, what they do not recognize is that the same children who need a breakfast program also require an evening meal. Perhaps they do not need dinner to improve in school but they do require regular meals to be healthy and active.
