Celebrate National NonProfit Day By Voting For Kids In Flight

Posted by:

August 17th in National NonProfit Day. Here is a quick and easy way to celebrate and help out a great cause! Have you heard of Kids in Flight? Kids in Flight was founded in 2003 and is a non-profit organization that uses aviation related activities and airplane rides to give children with serious illnesses or disabilities an opportunity to escape by soaring above their crises, complications and struggles. The organization serves children and families that mostly reside in the Cleveland and Akron areas or are served by a local hospital.

Kids in Flight is a finalist for a $25,000 grant from State Farm Insurance Neighborhood Assist. They are one of 200 finalist. 40 finalist will be awarded the grant in September. This grant amount covers the entire annual budget for Kids in Flight's Wings of Wonder (WOW) event, which is their pinnacle event of the year. For 10 years now, WOW has provided 750 children with terminal illnesses and their families the unique experience of flying in a private plane over the city of Cleveland. The funds are used to provide food, entertainment, and insurance on the event as the volunteer pilots fly the families at no charge in their private planes with the child co-piloting the flight.

This is where you come in! In order to win one of the grants, public votes in support of Kids in Flight will be counted by the State Farm Neighborhood Assist voting link. 10 daily votes from a legitimate e-mail address may be cast each day for the 10 days the voting is open from August 16th through August 25th. Click here to vote! It's that simple! A couple of clicks can mean so much to a seriously ill child and their family! So please take the time to vote and share this with others so they can also help Kids in Flight!
