It’s All About the Kids® Hosts the 11th Annual Prom for the Toussaint Academy
On August 13, 2014
The fantastic teens from the Toussaint Academy enjoyed DISCO PROM, with a photo opportunity, dinner, special drinks, dancing to a live DJ and of course the crowning of the Prom Court. The prom was of no cost to the teens. In July, Partying for a Purpose hosted Champagne & Purses where women donated dresses, shoes, purses and jewelry to be donated to the girls for prom. Male supporters also donated suits, shoes and ties. To help support our prom next year, contact us! Prom is a program of the Difference for a Day Program of It’s All about the Kids®

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 found the La Tribu Orphanages by accident. They need our help. Please watch this video and help us.

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 Angela@ItsAllAboutTheKids.org.

Toys from the Heart is a program to deliver wonderful and educational toys to children’s charities during the Holidays and All Year Long.
Good toys, books, games and software, carefully selected, can enhance and direct a child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth.

Internet Video Show
The Internet Video Show is a summer program. We are proud to announce a new partnership with the Microsoft Store in San Diego and Alexander Salazar Fine Art. Starting in 2012, kids from It’s All About the Kids will have the opportunity to learn video production and editing by attending classes at the Microsoft store. They then attended weekly classes at Alexander Salazar Fine Art. The program will prepare students for college and even careers in film. We are very excited about this new partnership. Thank you Microsoft Store and Alexander Salazar Fine Art!
It’s All about the Kids was awarded a grant from the Christopher J Collins Foundation. Thank you so much!
