Description of Organization:

Kids v Cancer promotes pediatric cancer research by identifying structural impediments at key junctures in the research process – new drugs, tissue donation and access to funding – and developing strategies to address them.
Are you looking for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah Project that could directly help people your age? Come join Kids v Cancer! Come create Tikkun Olam and make a better world for kids and young adults with cancer. You can make a difference.

Bnai Mitzvah Projects or Volunteer Opportunities offered by the organization for children ages 11 - 13:

Set up a fundraising page to spread awareness and ask for support for kids with cancer.
Learn about problems and how advocates work to identify solutions for the issues facing kids with cancer.
Get involved in advocacy that makes a real difference. Come to Washington, D.C. and lobby your Senators and Representatives to help kids with cancer or lobby your local representatives. You can also have meetings in your hometown.
Have a “Card Party” for children in the hospital. An opportunity to use your creativity and brighten the days of children.
Have other ideas? Great, just give them a call!
