A Word From Our Executive Director
We Would Like To Hear From You - Closed February 28, 2010
Since Webkinz Foundation began awarding grants, many have been made to health-related charities. This is a reflection of both the urgency of the issue, and the importance placed on children’s health needs by our retailers.
While we will continue to donate to worthwhile health and medical related organizations, we now seek to broaden our reach to support education programs for children.
As much as we would like to think otherwise, we are aware that not all children have the opportunity to obtain a quality education. In North America, this may mean that certain school districts are underfunded. In other countries, education could mean the difference between life and death, and may be the missing element needed to raise a family above the poverty line.
We would like to hear from you. We are interested in supporting small grass roots organizations in your community, as well as larger programs that give children educational opportunities they may otherwise not have.Mindy Ganz
