Who are Kids Giving Back?

Kids Giving Back: provides volunteer opportunities for kids

“Creating the next Generation of Generosity – Connecting People – Bridging Communities.”

Carole Schlessinger and Ruth Tofler-Riesel are the co-directors of KIDS GIVING BACK. They both have young children and believe that “one is never too young to help others”.

Volunteering with their own children, both locally as well as internationally, came out of a desire to enable their children to give to others. They wanted to instill in them experiences that would teach them compassion from a young age.

What do they do?

  • Bringing out the true potential of our children as they give to others
  • Inspiring a spirit of empathy and social responsibility
  • Kids making the world a better place

Their mission is to instil in young people and their family unit the beauty of giving to others, not just of material things but also of time through real life experiences. We believe that when kids (together with their families and school peers) volunteer, we are developing our next generation of leaders and creating a culture of generosity and civic responsibility.

Why we love Kids Giving Back?

Steve Williams, Co-Founder of Bamboo says “This partnership works so well because   through their projects, social, and fundraising events, Kids Giving Back are not only helping with local and national worthy causes but they are also educating the next generation of international volunteers. You can see for yourselves the impact these kids are having on those they help and also how it’s affecting their complete outlook on the world outside of their own front door.”
