Through our philanthropically funded program, our ability to bring Kid Power Bands to classrooms across the country is entirely dependent on how much funding we receive, and our goal is always to reach as many students as possible.
This year, we did not receive as much funding as we anticipated; therefore, we have fewer spots open this year for our philanthropically funded program, which brings this program fully funded to eligible, selected applicants.
To participate with Kid Power Bands, you have three options:
- Buy Kid Power Bands directly. Purchase Kid Power Bands for your students and receive a 25% discount when you buy 20 or more!
- Crowdfund for Kid Power Bands on DonorsChoose.org. Almost 30 million students have benefitted from the 1.2 million funded projects on DonorsChoose.org, and last year, 100% of projects for Kid Power Bands were fully funded. Starting October 12, 2018, each and every donation to your project will be doubled while match funds last! Follow these steps to create a project today.
- In November 2018, our application form for philanthropically funded Kid Power Bands will open. Funding is limited this year, and some of that funding will be limited to specific cities. The application link and eligibility details will be posted once the application is live.
And remember, when kids wear the Kid Power Band, they can unlock even more lifesaving nutrition with every step they take, but the Bands are not essential to participate with UNICEF Kid Power. There are plenty of ways for you and your students to participate with UNICEF Kid Power without Kid Power Bands. Learn more about free Kid Power Ups and our free educational resources.
