Children's Charities

Care2's Race for Children in Need
100% of the donations generated go to support needy children through Children International.

The Child Health Site
The majority of this funding goes to The Child Health Site's charity partners, who use the funds to distribute vitamin A, strengthening young immune systems and improving resistance to disease. Vitamin A supplementation also prevents as many as 400,000 cases of childhood blindness each year; administer oral re-hydration formula to children with severe dehydration, a serious killer of children under five worldwide; make a prosthesis (usually a foot or a leg) to enable child amputees to walk and lead active lives; restore lost eyesight through simple surgeries that reverse blindness caused by cataracts and trachoma; test pregnant mothers for HIV as a step toward preventing mother-to-child transmission of the AIDS virus. Funding from the site helps an average of more than 1,000 children every day.
