A Significant Milestone.

After 14 years in Boston, 9 in Philadelphia—and now recently opened Chicago—Cradles to Crayons is ready to celebrate ONE MILLION CHILDREN SERVED! This is a significant milestone for our organization and everyone who has supported us along the way.

But, with 31.4 million children living in low-income situations throughout the Unites States, this is a reminder that we are just beginning to see the impact of our mission—we have more work to do, more awareness to raise, and more communities to bring together to ensure that one day all children have the basic essentials they need to thrive in their childhood.


Spread the Word and Support Children in Need!

On Thursday, October 13, we are launching a social media campaign to raise awareness—and we need your help to generate more buzz, tell people about the need for everyday essentials, and get more support!


There are two easy ways to get involved:

Kidpacks_WebImage1. Personally engage your own social media networks.

2. Ask your Company, Organization, or Community’s Communications Team to get involved.

  • Encourage organizational participation on social media and donations internally and externally
  • Keep an eye on Cradles to Crayons’ social channels and sharing the #OneMillionChildren campaign assets we’ll be posting
  • The creative assets (video and infographics—Donate an outfit video, Infographics about Cradles to Crayons’ work, Statistics on poverty in BOS, PHL, and CHI) to share can be found here: cradlestocrayons.box.com/v/1MCAssets
