A Gift From Us to You!
Updated: Jan 14
Kids in the Spotlight is all about giving all year round! Our mission is to pour time, energy, resources, and most importantly, love to the youngsters we are privileged to serve to ensure they have every opportunity to be heard and healed.
One of our founding organizers, Writer-Producer T. Faye Griffin, once said, "KITS is more than movies. It's a movement." We hope that you'll consider joining the movement this week with not one, but two opportunities to lend much needed financial support.
On #CyberMonday visit our online shop where you'll find great gift ideas. And on #GivingTuesday please make a year-end, tax deductible contribution. Your dollars will go a long way towards meeting the 2020 program budget. Since it is Kids in the Spotlight's 10th anniversary, perhaps consider a gift of $10 or more. Of course, any amount is more than appreciated.
And what is our gift to you, you ask? For your contribution you'll receive an exclusive invitation to watch party on Saturday, December 7th. We will email you a code that gives you access to a LIVE screening of "Burnt Feathers, Broken Wings," a moving documentary featuring foster youth from Maryvale Agency and directed by award-winning director, producer, actor, Cady McClain.
As an incentive, we hope you'll enjoy some of our favorite quotes (see below). And may they inspire you to always be of service to those in need.
