Welcome to The Shadow Buddies Foundation, a Nonprofit Organization
ttp rainbow spans
Since 1995, The Shadow Buddies Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Kansas City, has been bringing smiles, hope, and companionship to medically challenged children across the country and around the world in the form of cuddly, plush Buddies. When children are faced with a health care challenge, they need a friend to bring along on their journey.
Our Shadow Buddies can be there to help your child feel safe and secure during a frightening medical experience. These plush pals help your child understand that no matter what type of illness they may have, they are never alone. Your child can proudly proclaim they have a friend “just like me.”
If you believe in helping children in need, you can help the Shadow Buddies Foundation, a charitable organization, spread love and education to these special children and their families; you can donate your time, money, and even Buddies themselves, to make a difference in the life of a child.
Reasons to Get Involved With a Kansas City Nonprofit Charitable Organization
We know that your time and money are valuable to you, and we appreciate every person who is willing to volunteer their time or make a charitable contribution to our organization. When you give your time or money, you become a part of the organization, and that sense of community and accomplishment can be a reward all its own.
There are a number of reasons to get involved in a charitable type of organization. Regardless of your skill level, your help is needed at our human services organization.
- Volunteering your time can bring you a sense of satisfaction, and you can get community service hours if you need them. Volunteering for a not-for-profit organization is also helpful for high school students who will soon be applying to colleges.
- Donating to a charitable organization allows your money to go where you want it to go. Charitable donations are tax deductible.
- Being a part of the nonprofit sector is good for the soul.
- Volunteering may not bring you income, but it could bring you skills. You could learn how to sew, learn how to work with children, and get a sense of what else you can do in life to help your fellow humans.
