Superhero 5K

The For Kids' Sake Superhero 5K is our largest annual fundraiser. It promotes health, builds community and supports the children in Bangladesh. To get involved, you can create a team, become an event sponsor or fundraise.


Bangla Boxes

Children in Carbondale, Illinois have decorated recycled boxes and distributed them to local retail stores to collect spare change. Today, boxes are distributed all over town. Each week, the children collect the change and donate it to FKS. Start your own change collection at home for the kids; every penny counts.


Art Auction

For Kids' Sake Art Auctions raise funds with the sale of artwork by children from around the world. To contribute, submit art, sponsor a wall or purchase artwork.



Host a mixer in the comfort of your own home. Invite friends, family and colleagues to attend an illuminating presentation about For Kids’ Sake and how they can get involved. These fundraisers typically fund an urgent project. Mingle, enjoy hors d’oeuvres and make this fundraiser a party!
