Advocacy

Giving Tuesday Donations

For Giving Tuesday, Little Known Help Zone conducted some civic engagement and gave to a variety of causes near and dear to our mission. These ranged from community to globally, and a diverse number of causes received support.

Jaguar Rescue Center- Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

This is a cause we have worked with extensively in the past (read our posts) and wanted to send a bit more love down there. This organization is doing incredible work with jungle animals in Costa Rica, and we’ve seen first hand how meaningful their work is.

Voices for Biodiversity

This is an anthropological organization that supports biodiversity and cultural diversity through global endeavors, preserving the vital ecology of our earth.

TechGirlz

This great group teaches tech and STEM skills to young girls from underprivileged communities, inspiring passion and helping enrich and mentor young women that may not have the resources.

Allentown Food Bank

This local organization feeds Allentown’s hungry, what more can we say than we want to give back to the community that has made this organization a reality.

Look Good Feel Better

This organization gives women undergoing chemo makeup and classes so that while they are working on getting better, they can feel beautiful.

Color Creates a Brighter Futre

Bucks County Author Fair

Last week, we were lucky enough to attend the Bucks County Local Author Fair at the Quakertown Library in PA. This was such a fun event, and we was able to meet so many local kids, other authors, and share and sell the books to raise money for LKHZ’s causes.

The kids were super excited by the books, crayons, and bookmarks, and we was also able to teach them the importance of giving back to others in your community. These books made great holiday gifts, and all of the copies will be going to great homes

It was so wonderful to be involved in such a great community event. Thank you Bucks County Libraries for having us and putting on this great time!IMG_2495 2.jpg

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.
