Have a Heart for Kids Day rally, 2015

Update: Local kids give $1,000 to the Children's Alliance

The Children's Alliance is humbled and amazed by a recent gift. Kids at Thorndyke Elementary School in Tukwila raised funds through the Common Cents Penny Harvest educational program. Then they chose to give the Children's Alliance a generous $1,000 grant.

Penny Harvest is an educational program for kids age 4 to 18 who turn their compassion into action by collecting pennies and turning those pennies into grants for community organizations.

A great big thanks goes to the kids at Thorndyke and the adults who supported this extraordinary effort. Your gift brings us a little closer to the day when all Washington's children will have what they need to grow up to be the people they dream of becoming.
