Kids 4 kids – is there a more inspiring purpose for a business? It explains why I was instantly drawn to the energy of three siblings and friends at an event recently. These kids, all wearing t-shirts with simple but powerful messages, were full of charisma so I had to get to know them.
Tell me about your shirts, I asked.
“Our cousin passed away from pediatric cancer. We wanted to honour our cousin and raise money to support the hospital that helped our cousin” http://www.sickkidsfoundation.com/
What a powerful purpose to start a business with.
“How did you come up with the t-shirt ideas?”
“Our friend in Toronto wanted to help us commemorate our cousin and sent us some messages to put on t-shirts.”
I took a look at their collection and these messages are powerful with their simplicity. Messages include:
Shine your light
I only do me
I can and I will (my favorite!)

The KaJaPe kids 4 kids seemed to be the life of the party at this market day. I had to know what inspired them.
“We like helping lots of people” they said.
If you saw them in action, I think you would agree with that statement.
I wanted to know, “What is the toughest part about running your own business?”
“The hardest part is when a customer says they will come back but they don’t.”
When asked what other kids could do to start a business, the KaJaPe kids 4 kids stayed true to their simple message:
“Find something you love to do or something nobody else is doing.”
I’m inspired to see kids taking action to make a difference. It was an amazing experience to meet these kidpreneurs and we are excited to see their journey.
