Kids In The Spotlight

Empowering Foster Youth Through Filmmaking

Since 2009, Kids In The Spotlight (KITS) has created over 75 films with more than 500 youth from foster care,

where they are given full agency to tell their stories, their way, by writing, casting & starring in their own short films.

Now, after 12 years of helping foster youth heal & grow through the art of filmmaking, we're taking our next big step. And it starts with a celebration!



Our founder Tige Charity's upcoming 50th birthday is June 18th. 
Tige wants to dedicate her birthday to raising money for the KITS Production Studio for a Cause.
What KITS Production Studio? Watch the video below to see the vision!

For that reason, we launched our "50k in 50 Days” fundraising campaign to create the first of its kind

KITS Production Studio for a Cause.

It starts NOW, with a 50-day countdown to her birthday.


But wait... there's more!!

A generous donor will DOUBLE DOWN on our efforts, pledging to match each donation TWICE, up to the $50k goal.

If you, our beloved village, can help us hit $50,000 by Tige's birthday, it automatically becomes $150,000 
of seed money towards our Production Studio.

So whatever the size of your gift, its impact will be increased by the opportunity of this matching effort.
Please celebrate with a donation today and empower foster youth through filmmaking.
