A group of kids is trying to make a difference in the world by starting at a young age.

Each child in 100 Kids Who Care Kelowna is learning to inspire others and donate to causes they support.

“They come together four times a year to select charities that they believe in, that they nominate,” Richard Deacon, 100 Kids Who Care Kelowna founder, said. “Ultimately they give $10 of their own money, or money that their parents have helped them earn, to the charity that they choose.”

The children, between five to 17 years old, met at Okanagan College on Thursday night to cast their votes for their preferred charity.

The kids raised $1,000 to split between Joanna’s House, the United Way and World Wildlife Fund.
