LKHZ’s New Initiative

When Little Known Help Zone was started, it sprang from injustice, compassion, and passion. A 14 year old girl with the drive to make a difference. Something that I always heard when I was younger was “more young kids need to do things like this.” I spoke about it too. Organizations would bring me in as a nonprofit founder and I would be this teenage figure that should inspire others.

I’m 22 now, and while my big campaigns have filled me with joy, I’m starting graduate school and a job, and I don’t have 3 hours to drive into Philly traffic and donate pencils. Instead, I want to take Little Known Help Zone to a new level, supporting kids and their service projects.

I want to sustain the way I felt and inspire others.

This will be done through Color Creates a Brighter Future, my children’s coloring book that teaches kids how to recognize inequality and make a difference in their world.

LKHZ will be reading the book different places, giving children bookmarks that are a guide to starting their own service projects, and hosting a bi-yearly grant contest to support service initiatives!

We’re excited for this new initiative, as all great things evolve to shine light in the world, LKHZ has too.

Monthly Classroom Project, My Community

Partnership with Crayon Collection

Little Known Help Zone is thrilled to announce a new initiative to support the Monthly Classroom Project, a partnership with Crayon Collection. This nonprofit fuses a commitment to the environment with art education in underfunded public schools. Through this work, they collect crayons from restaurants that are barely used and then donate them to schools.

This line of work aligns with Little Known Help Zone’s mission to empower students in their education (and our commitment to the environment with our recycled goods fundraising program).

LKHZ will be working with local restaurants in the Philadelphia and Allentown area to collect lightly used crayons and donate them to the schools we work with during the monthly classroom collaboration!
