Who are Project: Love & Care?
Project: Love & Care are a local charity of volunteers which redchip has supported over a number of years. They provide Care Kits to children when they are first placed into foster care. The aim of the Care Kits is to provide items comforting, useful and necessary for these children who are often left with nothing.

What is Project: Reach 1000 Kids?
Inspired by the hardworking volunteers at Project: Love & Care, Peter has set himself the challenge to collect goods to fill 1000 Care Kits and in turn brighten the lives of 1000 children who have left their worlds behind and been placed into foster care.
For this project to be a success, Peter needs your help.
How can you help?
The kits include items chosen to suit the age and gender of the child. Bulk donations to fill 1000 kits are ideal, however small or individual donations are also greatly appreciated.
One of the greatest things you can do for this cause is to spread the word so we can get help from as many angles as possible. Please share this article or like the Project: Reach 1000 kids Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/reach1000kids
