Kids Giving Hope To Kids
"Be the change you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi

Kids giving hope to Kids is an art project for peace that connects children in conflict zones with other kids.
 These kids affected by war communicate with one another through art and letter writing that offer messages of hope and peace.  The goal is to encourage and uplift children who have been impacted by war and terrorism.

Lynn Matthews started the project after hearing about the horrific situation that Iraqi and Syrian people were facing because of the war.  The first project was a "Peace" drawing exchange between Afghan, Iraqi, and Syrian children who had been displaced by the war.  In 2015, it expanded to include American kids, with a mission to create awareness in them about the importance of empathy and compassion for others  In 2015 over 700 drawings were collected from many different schools in all four countries.

Following the collapse of Afghanistan, and with the start of the war in Ukraine in 2022, Lynn Matthews is redoubling her efforts to find ways to safely connect children to reveal their shared sense of humanity.
