 Come out have some fun and raise funds at the same time! 

The Kids First Initiative (KFI) is a progressive grassroots organization that is actively working to help break the cycle of poverty by providing young people with vital resources that will ensure them a more successful life. 

For the past ten years, KFI has been providing services to thousands of children and their families in not only the United States but in Canada and Haiti also. The services have included, but are not limited to; holiday meal gift basket distribution, cold weather gear distribution, employment opportunities for high school students, and STEAM workshops for grade school students. Our goal is to provide children from a lower socio-economic background with the same great opportunities and experiences that are not typically afforded to them. 

Please allow this letter to introduce you to Kids First Initiative and our 4th Annual Operation Global Giving Telethon for which we are seeking your support. This fundraising event is both a real-time telethon and silent auction. This event will feature live entertainment, food, door prizes and a super 50/50 raffle. Last year we proudly raised in excess of $12,000 for the kids. We plan on exceeding that goal this year with your help. 

This event will be streaming live from inside the Great Lakes Grossing Mall 4000 Baldwin Rd. Auburn Hills, MI 48326 at the AMC Theatre entrance. This is a great opportunity for your company to receive exposure and help support a worthy cause! Let our kids know that we not only have faith in them and their abilities, but we are willing to assist them in becoming successful global citizens as well. 

All the funds raised will go directly to Kids First Initiative, a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization, and its programs such as: Our Holiday Meals Program which provides over 6,000 meals (we drive to each city) to kids and their families in 3 countries and 25 cities, our STEAM Fun Day which exposes thousands of kids to the world of Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math, Project Haiti which provides rechargeable light and school supplies to Haitian students and lastly, the Career Pathways Expo that connects young people to their future career endeavors. We are looking for schools and organizations to partner with us during the telethon so we can provide gifts for the kids in Puerto Rico; we are going to personally deliver the gifts to the students in San Juan. Our giving will have a huge impact both locally and globally. Contact us to see how you can help,
