This is Nikki. Every year since she was six years old, she has been giving up her birthday gifts so that
people in underdeveloped countries can sleep with mosquito nets. She is assisting the global fight against malaria.
Nikki represents the 500+ children from all over the world who we showcase on this site. She exudes compassion and is growing confidence every day
as she sees the benefit of helping others. What will her future bring?
Kids Are Heroes® was founded by a nine-year-old girl named MaryMargaret. Her future is also bolstered by her many philanthropic actions. By fostering a community of children from all cultures who accumulate entrepreneurial skills and use them to improve the lives of others, we are empowering more and more children to help build a greater world. The only way we can expand our reach is through your help. We have great plans for the future, but sadly these plans can only be carried out if we have the financial backing to support them. So please give generously.
