Children’s Health & Well Being. Nothing is more important to any mother than the health and well being of her children. Here are some great organizations working hard to help children live healthier and happier lives.

Cookies for Kids’ Cancer

“Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is committed to raising funds to support research for new and improved therapies for pediatric cancer. Through the concept of local bake sales, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer provides the inspiration and support for individuals, communities, and businesses to help fight pediatric cancer.”

Project Peanut Butter

“Project Peanut Butter is a therapeutic feeding program for malnourished children in Malawi and Sierra Leone, on the continent of Africa. Their factory and medical teams serve thousands of children each year in rural villages in Malawi and Sierra Leone, transporting life-saving Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food, doctors and nurses to remote locations at two week intervals until recovery occurs. Project Peanut Butter trains local health service workers to assess pediatric malnutrition levels, encourage local participation and assist teams of medical professionals on site visits.”

Quilts for Kids

Quilts for Kids, Inc. transforms donated and discontinued fabrics into quilts that comfort children with life threatening illnesses such as cancer & AIDS. They also gift quilts to children of abuse. They are an all volunteer charity with 50 chapters in 29 states as well as the Caribbean, and have gifted quilts to tens of thousands of children. They are always in need of volunteer quilters and fun child oriented fabrics.

The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

“The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation seeks to prevent pediatric HIV infection and to eradicate pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention and treatment programs. Whether they are working to attract top researchers to the field of pediatric AIDS, creating programs that provide a full continuum of care in developing countries, or collaborating to accelerate clinical discoveries, their programs offer hope for all children and families living with HIV/AIDS.”

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee is world renowned for its research in pediatric oncology and the treatment services they provide to children suffering from the most deadly forms of cancer.

Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America

“Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation’s mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 174,000 children around the world.”

Autism Speaks

“At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder.”

Angels for Foster Kids

“Angels for Foster Kids works to recruit Angel Investors for Foster Children. Why? Because there are over 500,000 foster children in the US; vulnerable boys and girls who have been abused, neglected, and/or abandoned by dysfunctional or underprivileged families without sufficient resources to care for them. These impressionable statistics bear testimony to the importance of our purpose. All Children deserve respect and nurturing.”

Save the Children

“Save the Children is the leading, independent organization creating lasting change for children in need in the United States and around the world. We are a member of the International Save the Children Alliance, comprising 27 national Save the Children organizations working in more than 120 countries to ensure the well-being of children.”

Naked Heart Foundation

“Our mission is to provide a safe and inspiring environment in which to play for every child living in urban Russia. We believe that play is a necessity, not a luxury, and that every child should be given a secure environment in which to play.”


“Our mission is to transform the lives of Lesotho’s orphans and vulnerable children. Sentebale was founded by Prince Harry and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso to help the forgotten victims of poverty and of the HIV/Aids epidemic ravaging this kingdom.”

Kennedy Krieger Institute

“We at the Kennedy Krieger Institute dedicate ourselves to helping children and adolescents with disorders of the brain and spinal cord achieve their potential and participate as fully as possible in family, school, and community life.”


“We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.”

Love Without Boundaries

“LWB provides the most loving and compassionate help possible to orphaned and impoverished children in China. We do this through five main program areas: medical, education, foster care, orphanage assistance, and healing homes.”

R Baby Foundation

“R Baby Foundation is the first and only not-for-profit foundation uniquely focused on saving babies lives through improving pediatric emergency care. R Baby Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that babies, including those in the first month of life suffering from viral infections and other infectious diseases, receive the highest quality of care and service through supporting life-saving pediatric training, education, research, treatment and equipment.”
