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.

PETE&C Presentation

On Wednesday, February 24th, Founder Makenna Lenover will be speaking at PETE&C, the Pennsylvania Educational Technology Expo and Conference located at Hershey Lodge. The speech will be highlighting approaches to education to inspire students to give back on their own, implementing technology platforms for personal growth, and how this learning approach can create tangible results. All of this will be exemplified by sharing the growth and endeavors of Little Known Help Zone.

This speech will raise awareness about LKHZ and its causes to a largescale group of people, and will result in a donation that will be incredibly helpful to the causes. 12417855_10205446011890785_1733858868723505983_n
