100 Kids Who Care London came from the desire to teach children to give. 100 Kids intends to show that philanthropy comes from the willingness to help and that anyone can contribute, regardless of age, gender or their net worth. As well, we highlight that the need for help exists in our own community. 100 Kids wants to inspire the next generation of philanthropists by providing a forum to help and contribute to local charities.
