This contest is over. Thank you for participating!

On any given day, there are more than 415,000 children in the U.S. foster care system. And it’s not just adults who can help them get the love and care they need. Kids can make a huge impact by volunteering or helping to raise essential items and monetary donations for local nonprofit foster care organizations in their communities.

 

We want to recognize these Kid Heroes and are asking parents and friends to submit a photo of their favorite kid hero giving back to local foster kids for a chance to win!

 

IT'S EASY TO ENTER!

 

1.     From May 2-22, snap a photo of your kid hero participating in our clothing drive.

 

2.     Share the photo on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #Donate4FosterKids. Be sure to include a photo caption briefly stating why your kid hero wants to help foster kids. Note: You must have a public profile in order for your entry to be submitted. You can reestablish your privacy settings after publishing your post.

 

3.     Not on Instagram or Twitter? Click "Submit an Entry" above or below to upload your photo directly to the content gallery.

 

4.     Share your entry with your friends and ask for votes! Your photo will have a unique URL to make voting easy.

 

The 5 photos with the highest number of votes will move onto the Finalist round (May 23-29, 2016), and the winner will be announced the week of May 30.
