Difference For a Day

Difference for a Day: We create fun activities joining teens and adults to bridge the gap of trust, build self esteem, and teach that life is limitless.

It’s All About The Kids Foundation organizes and facilitates monthly activities for the children from our Alliance Charities. The Difference for a Day mission is to build self-esteem, trust with adults, teach these wonderful children that anything in life is possible. The activities that we provide are on a monthly and sometime weekly basis. Most of our programs benefit the Toussaint Academy of Arts and Sciences and Storefront. We find that it is critical to impact these fantastic teens before they turn 18 and are dropped from traditional assistance. Our activities help create happy moments for the teens, while teaching them how to create their own happy moments and bright futures. All of our programs are led by Executive Director Angela Brannon with the help of It’s All About the Kids’ sponsors and volunteers. To volunteer for a Program, please contact

Difference for the World Program

Difference for the World program began in 2011. It’s All About the Kids is just that..about Kids. The children of Baja Mexico are starving and homeless. With the help of Partner Charity, Santa Caus, It’s All About the Kids adopted Rancho El Milagro Children’s Home, Casa Estrella, Hogar Buena Vida Orphanage and Casa de Paz Orphanage. We provide blankets, pillows, sleeping bags, clothing, shoes, toiletries, school supplies, educational materials and much more.

In 2012-2013, we coordinated the donation of Pillow Pets and Life Gear Glow Sticks to all the children [no more scary nights in the dark]. We continued to donate more clothes, shoes, bedding, hygiene products and more.

In 2014, Executive Director Angela Brannon and volunteers began mission trips to Baja to visit and help orphanages. What we found was devastating. We purchased new screen for 60 windowns for Rancho Milagro, and provided food and clothes to Casa de Paz and La Tribu.

We continue to raise money, clothes and toys for the children. We are always in need, so please help!

In 2015, we are installing a water filtration system at Rancho Milagro that was designed by UCSD Students in the Global Teams In Engineering Service (TIES) Program. We will also be providing hygiene products and food.

It’s All About the Kids Named #2 Children’s Charity in San Diego

The It’s All About the Kids Foundation is happy to announce that we have been chosen as the #2 Children’s Charity in San Diego, according to The Miami based internet site that  highlights the best of everything in major cities.

“The national recognition that our charity is receiving is a testament to the good work that the board and Angela have done over the years.  We should all be proud that our organization never sought recognition but only focused on doing good work for those in need in San Diego.” said Shawn Heyl, It’s All About the Kids President and Co-Founder. “Every once in a while we find ourselves involved in a business or organization that we really can be proud to be a part of and that really makes a difference.  ”
