What’s It All About?

You may know friends, classmates, relatives or neighbors who have turned to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC for desperately needed medical care. Many of these kids need all the emotional and financial support they can get, especially from other kids, and that’s where the Kids Helping Kids campaign comes in. It’s all about rallying behind the kids who need help in ways most of us can't even begin to imagine.

Kids Helping Kids: It's Fun and Rewarding

Students gain experience in philanthropy, community-building, planning, and organization when you join our Kids Helping Kids Campaign. There are lots of cool fundraising ideas and your campaign can last a week, a month or the entire school year.

In the 2013-2014 school year, hundreds of schools helped raise over $100,000 with our Kids Helping Kids Campaign. The collective support of our community schools makes a lasting impact on our patients and families. Many thanks to all who participated.

Due to privacy and infection control regulations, Children's Hospital does not allow students to visit patient rooms or engage in hands-on activities with patients, but we do share with patients and their families the wonderful contributions made by area students.
