Top Organizations and Charities for Kids
The holidays are the prime time for giving back - and what better way to do it than by supporting a kids charity? These organizations offer some of the coolest holiday programs for kids, and all of them provide money to worthwhile causes. So if you've got a few extra bucks, some volunteer time, or extra clothes and supplies laying around the house, here's where you can send them. And if we missed an organization you love working with during the holidays, please spread the word and nominate it here! - Christina Couch

Throughout the year, this Chicago- and Washington DC-based nonprofit focuses on ending the isolation that children facing poverty and disabilities encounter. Each year, Dreams for Kids throws the world’s largest holiday event for homeless and underprivileged children, Holiday for Hope, where more than 1,000 kids gather for a day of music, food, face painting, clowns, and gifts. Since Holiday for Hope’s inception in 1989, the idea has caught on to orphanages, shelters, and community centers across the US and beyond (including locations in Cambodia, India, Bangladesh, Kenya, and Ghana).
