It’s all about kids.

The mission of SKIP Supporting Kids in Pain is to make a difference in the lives of children.

At SKIP, our main priority is to cheer up as many kids as possible. We provide care packages that bring a lot of joy, fun and comfort to sick children in hospitals. The packages go to children of all ages through teenage years. These gifts would not be possible without the help of all of our generous sponsors.

We also hold an annual fundraiser, which helps us raise money to continue to grow SKIP, but also accept donations throughout the year.

At SKIP we value the amount of happiness and joy our care packages bring to sick children. Cheering up a sick child and putting smiles on their faces is priceless.

  • Each care package SKIP creates and delivers costs approximately $13-15.
  • We ask that you donate once a month to help a child in need.
  • To date, SKIP has delivered over 50,000 care packages to sick and less fortunate children.
  • SKIP’s 5-year vision is to donate and deliver 100,000 additional care packages to children.
  • For the past 4 years, we have been helping low-income housing and have helped over 2000 children receive Christmas presents.

SKIP always welcomes the contribution of new items for the packages, including coloring books, crayons, brand new reading books for all ages, puzzles, small games and flash cards. We encourage monetary donations to allow us to purchase these items. We also provide to less fortunate children at Easter and Christmas.

SKIP Supporting Kids in Pain is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and receives 100 percent tax-deductible gifts from individuals and corporations. We can accept grants from other nonprofit organizations and state and federal agencies.
