  • THANK YOU WinterKids friends and supporters! You helped us make our 2018-2019 year one of the best yet! We launched our WinterKids App for mobile phones to help more kids try new winter sports, doubled the number of schools and students who participated in the WinterKids Winter Games, and hosted families at over 40 winter events in Maine and New Hampshire. Thank you for making winter more fun and accessible for over 22,000 children! Our newly released annual report shares all the details of the impact we've made together. You can find it via the link in our bio!⁣
⁣
Now, it's time for us to ask you to help make a difference again this 2019-2020 season. Here are two ways you can help (links for both are in our bio):⁣
⁣
1) DONATE TODAY: at winterkids.org/donate-fund. When you make a tax deductible donation to the WinterKids fund, you are supporting effective, evidence-based solutions to reducing childhood obesity and the loss of connection to the natural environment. Your contribution is much more than charity: it's an investment in the future of our children and outdoor heritage.⁣
⁣
2) VOLUNTEER: join the fun, make new friends, and feel great knowing you've made a difference. Your time is an excellent investment in the future of our children!⁣

  • Meet WinterKids board member, Lisa Trundy-Whitten. This is her #WhyWinterKids!  Lisa is WinterKids’ longest-standing board member at 8 years and counting. She is a CPA and Partner at @Berry_Dunn, serves as Treasurer of the board, and is lauded for her ability to provide analytic detail in terms that anyone can understand. Lisa loves the coast of Maine (she hails from Sorrento) in the summer and skiing in the winter, and her hearty laugh is contagious. She lives in South Portland with her husband and son, who has an awesome So Po Starfish Downhill 24 Team!  We are so grateful to Lisa for her involvement and support! If you'd like to support WinterKids in your own way, we invite you to donate or volunteer via the links in our bio!  #WinterKids #MEKids #NHKids #HealthyKidsAreHappyKids

  • TONIGHT! Join us for our favorite way to kick off our favorite season (❄️WINTER❄️) with the 8th Annual WinterKids License to Chill at @PortlandHouseOfMusic!⁣
⁣
@Mary.Theresa.Tringale has pulled off the most incredible music, food & drink, and list of silent and live auction items...possibly our best ever, so be sure to give her a high five when you see her tonight! All money raised will help us get (and keep!) kids active and vibrant in the outdoors.⁣
⁣
We can't wait to see YOU tonight! Tickets are available online until noon. After that, they’ll be available at the door ($30 single/$50 couple). For a sneak peek behind the scenes as we set up, and for those of you who can't make it tonight but want to join the fun, be sure to keep an eye on our Stories here on IG. 😉⁣
