Kids Curing Kids

Kids4Kids sale 1

I think most kids would agree that they would rather not spend their free time spring cleaning.  Hanging out with friends, playing video games, riding bikes?  Yes.  Spring cleaning?  No.  But Kaitlyn Knecht, a sixth grader from Mechanicsburg, PA, took spring cleaning and turned it into an opportunity to help others. 

Enlisting the help of her neighbor, Allison, and small army of other friends, Kaitlyn set out to have a yard sale to benefit CURE’s kids, children suffering from treatable disabilities around the world.  She and her friends gathered, donated and priced the items for the two-day sale.  Brightly colored posters advertised the sale and reeled in potential shoppers.

Kids4kids sale 2When asked what motivated her to hold the sale Kaitlyn said, “A lot of kids around the world can’t get help for themselves so it would be cool if we could help them.”  She and her friends did just that. The yard sale was a great success, raising nearly $300 for CURE.

A big thank you goes out to Kaitlyn and all her friends on behalf of CURE and children around the world who will benefit from the sale.
