The Charmz4Charity program brings the concept of philanthropy to a child's level. Children helping children.
Charmz4Charity is a feel-good program on so many levels. It builds confidence in the children involved by letting them realize that they can make a difference in this world. It teaches them the art of jewellery designing, as well as marketing and advertising. It opens their hearts, and gives them the opportunity to reach out to those that are less fortunate than themselves. By doing this, they learn about responsibility and the true spirit of giving, sharing and caring. Most importantly, this program helps children who need help the most.
Our concept is straight forward: With this kit, you have everything you need to make your very own bracelets. You can advertise or sell them to your family and friends, selling the bracelets for $5.00 -$20.00. Once the money is raised, please send a cheque to Charmz4Charity and let us know which registered Canadian children's charity you wish to designate your funds to. You will receive a tax donation from Charmz4Charity.
This is a family project, requiring adult supervision.
Not meant for children under 8 years of age
