100 Kids Who Care Maui came from the desire to teach children that philanthropy comes from the willingness to help and that anyone can contribute, regardless of age, gender or their net worth. As well, we highlight that the need for help exists in our own community. Our mission is to make the biggest impact in our community possible with our donation. 100 Kids wants to inspire the next generation of philanthropists by providing a forum to help and contribute to local charities.
