What is a Kid Ambassador?
When you earn the title Kid Ambassador by completing at least three of the options listed below, you have also become an example of kindness and volunteerism for all of the people in your life!
You can help spread the word about Box of Balloons and volunteering and being kind and you can be an amazing mentor to other kids who are interested in doing the same!
Here at Box of Balloons, we love getting kids of all ages involved in giving back, and helping to bring joy to children in times of need. If you're a kid, and you want to help make other kids happy, you're in the right place!
Complete THREE different projects from the ideas below. When you have completed your projects, move to step 3!
“I believe everyone should volunteer and give back in their lives because you can give back to the community and it will give back to you…”
-Emery Churchill, a 13-year-old volunteer for Box of Balloons through our Kids Helping Kids program
