Kids Help R Baby

Submit your project

‘Kids Help R Baby’ was inspired by a simple question that Sidney Rabinowitz, our founders’ son, asked when he was nine years old: “Why can’t more children help R Baby?” He even had some great ideas. “Could we do a flag football tournament or a smoothie stand? Or draw pictures for those babies at the hospital?” Our team loved the idea of introducing young children to the importance and personal rewards of volunteering. Sidney’s idea has grown into a program that lets kids create projects, get involved and have fun helping others.

‘Kids Help R Baby’ Mission:
Children helping to advance children’s healthcare, while doing things that interest them.

‘Kids Help R Baby’ Goals:
Raise awareness of R Baby among your friends and raise money to benefit your local children’s hospital that can help sick babies now and also advance healthcare for you, your friends and your future families.

‘Kids Help R Baby’ anytime, at any age:

  • Birthday parties
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvah projects
  • High school graduation project or community service
  • Sororities/fraternities
  • Just for fun and personal fulfillment

‘Kids Help R Baby’ while doing something that interests them:

  • Sports tournaments, runs or walks
  • Spin or exercise class
  • Lemonade stands, bake sales, toy drives
  • Instagram/Facebook, blogging and social media campaigns
  • Art or music contests
  • Sales of T-shirts or other items
  • Other creative ways to raise funds and awareness

Our hope is for children to really enjoy their volunteer work, and at the same time, learn from it by owning and creating their projects. We can provide support and resources to help make their projects fantastic, including marketing materials to distribute, as well as people to help you plan a successful event.
