Mightee Kids

I recently learned of and have had the pleasure of doing a review for an amazing charity named Mightee Kids. They’re a brand new organization, changing the lives of others, one t-shirt at a time.

 Not only do they donate $5 dollars from every shirt purchased to a different charity each month, but their goal is to teach kids about helping others in need as well.

The way it works is simple:

Become a member here

Receive a children’s t-shirt in size of your choice, along with a brochure about that month’s charity

Read the information to your child and teach them about the cause and how they helped someone less fortunate by donating

Simple, yet I believe it will have a profound impact on your child.

I absolutely love this charity because it isn’t solely about giving money but about building altruism, love and compassion for future generations.

The charity and cause for the month of January is Smile Train, a medical service charity dedicated to providing free corrective surgery to children with cleft lip and cleft palate in developing countries.

About 1 in every 700 children born have cleft lip and/or a cleft palate, a birth defect that affects the upper lip and roof of the mouth, and can also affect other parts of the face, such as the nose and eyes.

Besides interfering with eating, speaking and even breathing, children with cleft lip/cleft palate are ridiculed and ostracized, some are not allowed to attend school or have jobs in certain countries.

It breaks my heart to think of the hardships those innocent kids go through, all because of the way they look.

A simple, 45 minutes surgery that costs around $250 dollars can change that child's life forever though. Smile Train and Mightee Kids are helping to better the lives of the disadvantaged and you and your child can too.

Your child will spread awareness and feel good about themselves every time they wear a Mightee Kids shirt!

Natalie is obviously too young to understand any of this right now, but I hope to teach her about it when she's older and to inspire her to give to and care for others for a lifetime.
