Giving Back is SIMPLE: Ignite Social Media Partners with Champions for Kids
Here at Ignite Social Media, we love giving. We love giving: high fives, kudos to our colleagues who've helped us out, and perhaps most importantly, giving back to our communities. Whether it's pulling a plane, rescuing a dog, or picking up a few items to donate to a worthy cause, we do what we can and we're so glad we found a great partner in Champions for Kids to help us focus our efforts and maximize our impact.
Today, 22-million children in the US live in poverty and it's the mission of Champions for Kids to make it simple to give kids in your community the resources they need to thrive. Champions for Kids has a goal of mobilizing 20 million people by 2020 to become Champions for Kids.

Doing Our Part
Each quarter, we unite as an agency to complete a Simple Service Project to help children in need. We just wrapped up our first Kits of Caring drive in which we collected personal hygiene items that will not only keep kids healthy but will also help them to be confident among their peers.
We collected more than 250 items from 100 people in our North Carolina and Michigan offices. Items collected in Raleigh went to Haven House Services and items collected in Detroit were donated to Orchards Children's Services, both organizations strive to strengthen their communities by providing services to families and children. We're glad we can be a small part of their contribution to making the world a better place.
We can't wait for our next Champions for Kids project. Check out the organization for yourself and learn how you can help your community.
