"If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."
An Australian woman
At Let Kids Be Kids we advocate for those that are poor, homeless, sick, displaced or looking for assistance with making their lives slightly better. We also add our voice for those that cannot speak, those in the animal kingdom that are at risk due to environmental challenges etc.
We spent a great deal of time supporting the passage of Iniative 1401 on 3 November 2015. We are thrilled it passed with over 70% of voters from every county in the state.This bill will protect at least ten endangered species. “Initiative 1401 is about leadership in protecting endangered species, their habitats, and local communities. Poaching and illegal trafficking robs local communities of a valuable resource for sustainable tourism and brings violence into their midst. Closing the markets for this illegal trade is essential—precisely the purpose of this initiative.”GUY H. PALMER, DIRECTOR OF THE PAUL G. ALLEN SCHOOL FOR GLOBAL ANIMAL HEALTH AT WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY AND PROFESSOR OF LIFE SCIENCES AT THE NELSON MANDELA AFRICAN INSTITUTION OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY IN ARUSHA, TANZANIA
Some Examples of what we do: We help secure housing for the homeless, financial aide for those on the margins, food/meal food preparation, job training, HIV/AIDS/STDs classroom education, prison support, articles on related topics, Care Teams for the terminally ill, support via volunteerism and financial contributions to various animal protection campaigns i.e. Endangered Species, Wild Horses, direct and indirect support to indigenous peoples. See more info on Universal Givingand through the menu bar links and newsletter archives.
When we say "kids" we mean all of us. We believe if we all honored that special place in kids, that joy and enthusiasm, we'd be able to work miracles--
The videos, articles and photographs produced by Connemara Productions Ltd.serve to honor and highlight those that are willing to share their struggles, as well as honoring those that are reaching out a helping hand.
"Let Kids be Kids was more about making me into a capable and passionate, educated and inspired citizen. Teaching me how to help my community, and educating me on the different issues people work hard for." (University of Washington Graduate)

students with a unique insight into the challenges of a homeless man wandering through the system in Seattle. It is a story of discovery and hope that has benefited my students, as they look for ways to ameliorate the challenges the poor and homeless face on a daily basis. Mr. Miller's classroom visits have helped my students understand the human side of poverty and homelessness." (Feb 2013)
