We've been asking ourselves, "How can we get kids involved with the Luka The Lion Foundation to #Roar4Rare?" The answer has been right in front of us -- led by kids themselves. Here's some creative, grassroots ways kids #Roar4Rare to raise awareness for rare diseases and support kids so they never feel alone. Share your ideas with us as we form the #LTLCubPride -- more to come!
LET KIDS GENERATE IDEAS AND RUN WITH IT!
DONATE TOYS, CHORES & FUNDRAISER MONEY
Perhaps the most touching donations we've received has been from a brother and sister who donated $70 of their chores money to LTL to help other kids with rare diseases.
We've also been touched by kids bringing toys to give and selling their old toys at yard sales to raise money for the cause!
In each of these examples, it was kid leaders who generated the idea on how to raise awareness for rare diseases and show their support so fellow kids and families never feel alone. Let us know your ideas by emailing Julia@lukathelionfoundation.org.
WRITE & COLOR CARDS
Decorating and writing heartfelt cards to kids at the clinic/hospital go a long way to showing that you're never alone and people are thinking of you.
RACE, PLAY & CHEER US ON
Even the smallest of fans can ROAR big, cheering on runners and sprinting in the kid's cape race or kicking the ball around in our #ROAR4RARE soccer game -- all of which raises awareness for rare diseases.
