kids-chanceThis week is Kids’ Chance Awareness Week.  Kids’ Chance is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide scholarships to children of workers who have been catastrophically or fatally injured on the job.  Collectively, Kids’ Chance organizations have awarded 5,593 scholarships across the country, totaling over $16,592,000 dollars.  Kids’ Chance of America believes, as a community, we can all make a significant difference in the lives of all children affected by a workplace injury by helping them pursue and achieve their educational goals.  This awareness week is designed to increase visibility through outreach events in each state to spread the word about Kids’ Chance scholarship opportunities.  There are currently 36 Kids’ Chance state organizations with several others in development.  Kids’ Chance of America’s goal is to establish a Kids’ Chance presence in every state so that all eligible students have the opportunity for assistance.

This charity aligns perfectly with the workers’ compensation industry and it is truly a way everyone in our industry can work together to make things better for those impacted by workplace injuries.  For more information about Kids’ Chance, please visit www.kidschance.org.
