Kids for a Cure provides everything your school or organization will need to launch a fun and successful campaign—from fundraising ideas to materials—making this an easy program to administer!  Schools and organizations are welcome to design their own fundraising program (bake sale, dance-a-thon, hat day, can collection, etc.) or raise funds via one the following JDRF methods:

  • Spare Change Collection: JDRF will provide classroom collection containers with colorfulstickers to decorate the containers and individual student collection bags.
  • Kids Walk: Select a date, time and location. Students collect donations and then walk for a cure.
  • Paper Sneakers: Sell JDRF paper sneakers and line your walls with red, blue, green and yellow sneakers!
