RandomKid makes headlines around the world.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Media often report that RandomKid raised $10 million for Katrina relief in 2005, but this is not correct. RandomKid rallied youth across the USA, in one uber-powerful voice, to report $10 million for Katrina Relief. It wasn't until late 2005 that RandomKid filed to become it's own nonprofit, harnessing youth power for other world issues in response to this unprecendented outcome. Around Katrina, close to 12 million youth unified. Today, RandomKid mobilizes between 50,000-100,000 kids per year around a variety of causes.
