Children's Day USA is a unique and central nonprofit organization dedicated to the celebration and support of children and young families. Our goal is to support local organizations in organizing Children's Day events by raising money and providing them with resources, all while promoting the virtues of good citizenship and education.
The journey of Children's Day USA began in 1995 in Long Beach, California, and has since grown to encompass cities across the nation, including New Zealand, Carson, San Diego, and more. Our core belief is in celebrating children and their families through a special event held on the last Saturday in April. Over the years, we've expanded our vision and scope, drawing inspiration from the success of Children's Day celebrations in New Zealand.
Our overarching goal is to replicate the success of Children's Day celebrations that have taken place worldwide, with a particular focus on the United States. We operate as a central national nonprofit (Children's Day USA is a 501c3) that actively supports local groups in their efforts to host these events. Our guiding principle is simple yet powerful: "What are you going to do to make the world a better place?"
We offer a range of services to fulfill our mission, including event planning, an Education and Good Citizenship Project, and the Do The Right Thing/Children's Day USA Business Council. We provide guidance and resources to local groups, empower students to apply their knowledge to real-world challenges, and unite businesses to support low-income families, offer internships, and foster community growth.
We are always here to help. For inquiries, please contact us at (562) 741-7724 or via email at [email protected]. At Children's Day USA, we firmly believe in the importance of protecting the innocence of children and empowering families. Join us in our mission to make the world a better place for the next generation.
