Help yourself. And help a child in need.
Sales of Passion 4 Life help fund our Passion 4 K.I.D.S. charity. No wonder we’ve been praised by Kevin Harrington, original shark on ABC’s “Shark Tank” and founder of “As Seen On TV” , in Forbes.
Please join us in helping kids in desperate situations.
There are many “forgotten children” in desperate situations who fall between the cracks. They are not covered by insurance and no government program is available to help them. They face acute, life-threatening situations.
Passion 4 K.I.D.S. (Kids In Desperate Situations) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that helps such children. We also help homeless, neglected, abandoned, abused and underprivileged children of any race, color and creed.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Passion 4 Life supports our charity. Which is why we say:
“Help yourself and help a child in need.”
Passion 4 K.I.D.S. brings joy, love, stability and practical help to turbulent young lives and those closest to them. For example, we were able to make a big difference in the life of Baby Izaiah, critically injured in his stroller by a drunk teenage driver who lost control of his vehicle. The driver was unlicensed and uninsured. Izaiah’s 22-year-old Dad had no insurance of his own and had to leave his job to care for Izaiah.
Passion 4 K.I.D.S. founders Charles and Linda Van Kessler believe in having a very hands-on approach both in the day-to-day operations of the charity as well as the lives of the children they work with.
Linda mentors foster youth in the County of San Diego. She and Charles form lasting relationships with the children that continue long after they leave the foster program.
It all stems from Charles’s experiences in World War II Holland. He watched the Nazis drag away his family, then suffered abuse of every kind in a state-run orphanage. Read more in this front page newspaper article.
Today, Charles and Linda help young people lead better lives in these ways:
visiting “their” kids in the hospital or at home
taking these kids on fun and educational outings
purchasing the basic necessities of food and clothing and delivering them
donating Passion 4 Life liquid vitamins to quadriplegic, autistic, and ADD/ADHD children
raising funds for children in life-threatening situations
Above all, Charles and Linda serve as a resource of love, compassion and assistance to those they are so privileged to serve. Their mission is:
“To dedicate ourselves to glorify and honor God for His many blessings to us by making a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable and precious of His creation – children”
