Other Ways You Can Help

There are many ways that you can help us raise awareness about World Pediatric Project and bolster our mission to heal thousands of children each year.  Every dollar you raise mobilizes $5 in critical care delivered to pediatric patients from our partner countries, and every connection you make in support of WPP can lead to a healed child, and a changed world.  

Host a benefit event at your place of business

Tell us your idea, choose your theme and format, and we will provide you all the materials and information you need and help you engage with the community.

Kids Helping Kids: Have fun with your friends, classmates, or service organization while making a difference in the world

Friends, classes, or service organizations can create their own events to support the children served by WPP’s programs, such as an All Night Dance-A-Thon at school or a neighborhood Lemonade Stand.

Corporate Partnerships

Businesses can play a significant role in supporting World Pediatric Project while demonstrating to employees and customers their dedication to children’s health, regardless of geography.  WPP hosts a few signature events each year that welcome your participation, but we would be excited to work with you on other new concepts and ideas, such as a golf tournament, social event or auction. 

Support children who come to our community for help

Your church, business or civic organization could also “sponsor a child” that comes to the U.S. from their home countries for complex procedures.  Imagine going thousands of miles away for critical heath care, facing significant social and language barriers.  These kids and their caregiver also need the social support that your group can provide, as WPP brings the “mission” to you – and your fundraising efforts can help WPP to cover the costs associated with these life-changing and lifesaving procedures taking place in our own community.
