kindness.jpgKids Helping Kids (KHK) Club

The KHK Club is open to all students in grade 5. Our goal is to help kids in our community (near and far) in a variety of ways. We meet at least twice a month to work on assorted projects and activities. We have 3 projects that we work on throughout the year - collecting used eyeglasses for the Lions Club's recycled eyeglass program, collecting drink tabs from canned drinks to help raise funds for specialty wheelchairs, and making themed activity sheets for patients at the Children's Hospital. Other projects include volunteering at the Book Fair and the Used Book Sale, helping with "I Love to Read" activities, and making and selling crafts with proceeds donated to children's charities.




OUR 2015-16 PROJECTS

Celebrating Our Year of Helping to Make the World a Better Place!

The photo below was taken after KHK kids dug into their sundaes... our way of celebrating a year of working together to help make the world a better place. Well done, KHK kids!

Funds Raised this Year!

We know that helping others doesn't have to involve money/raising funds (some of what we did this year wasn't tied to money) but it's exciting to work on projects to raise money and then pass it along to others! At a recent KHK Club meeting, the kids decided on the recipients for funds they raised this year. Here are the results:
$200.00 to Free the Children (2 school kits, 1 goat, 2 bundles of chicks, primary education for one child)
$38.82 each to: Willow Place, Ronald McDonald House - Manitoba, Siloam Mission, Cancer Society - Manitoba Division, Winnipeg Humane Society

We Day 2014.jpgWE Day - Winnipeg

Most of the Wayoata students that attended WE Day this year are members of the KHK Club. It was an inspiring day that will stay with us for years to come! Follow along this year as we do what we can to "make a difference"! Check out more about WE Day here.

Light_Bulb.gif
Some of our thoughts from the day:
Don’t be afraid to dream big!
Every child has the right to express themselves!
Everyone is the same, you shouldn’t make fun of anyone!
We all have differences!
Don’t judge people by their colour!
You can change things if you just try!
Don’t hesitate to help someone!
No matter what you do you can be amazing!
We’re the change for this generation!
Find your talent. Make yourself unique!

We're busy making crafts for the upcoming sale. All proceeds will be donated to charities of the KHK club members' choosing. We were inspired by our recent attendance at WE Day and will be donating some of the funds to at least one of the causes we learned about at that event.

The craft sale was held during our school's Christmas concerts on December 18th (afternoon and evening).

OUR SPRING 2011 PROJECT

Quotable Quotes!

We used the computer to create mini posters featuring well known inspirational quotes. The posters fit in a stand-up frame and are meant to be interchanged. Club members decided by a unanimous vote that a frame and set of mini posters should be donated to the Winnipeg Humane Society. Earlier this year Club members raised funds for the Society by selling peppermint bark and gift bags at the school's Christmas Concerts...Kids Helping Kids (and animals, too)! Way to go!

OUR 2009-2010 PROJECT

K-9 Vest

Way to Go KHK Kids (and the Wayoata Community)!

For the 2009-10 school year the KHK Club worked towards raising funds for a protective vest for Nash - a Winnipeg Police Service K-9 pup. We ran a number of fundraisers including a craft sale, a used book sale, and popsicle and lollipop sales. By mid June we had raised the $1600 needed for the vest! We presented the cheque to Constable Tighe and Nash on June 23, 2010.
