I have been volunteering with Cradles to Crayons since I was 6 years old. I feel good when I am helping other kids and there are so many kids who don't have things they need so I want to help and make a difference. My mom and I joined the UN-Run to help raise money so that Cradles to Crayons can help more kids, especially babies.
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth though age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school, and at play. Last year, Cradles to Crayons supported more than 70,000 children in the Greater Philadelphia region.
One-third of the customized KidPack requests we receive from our service partners are intended for babies and toddlers. These special bundles often include several sets of clothing, caps & booties, bibs & burp cloths, developmental toys, board books, diapers, and hygiene items such as baby wash, lotion, diaper ointment, and more. We also offer diaper bags, crib sheets, and larger gear such as car seats and strollers. Our Gear Up for Baby initiative provides resources to support this vulnerable population.
The Gear Up for Baby Un-Run is a unique fundraiser "race" in which participants can choose when, where, and how far they wish to go. Each team member sets a personal goal for both distance and dollars to be raised during the race period from May 1 - July 31.
