Clinton Hill was special......not because cancer tragically took his life at the age of eleven, but because the life he lived displayed courage and sensitivity to the world around him.
He couldn't understand what we were doing to our planet -- we dumped poisons into our skies and rivers and showed neglect for our precious plants and animals. How, he wondered, could we do such things? Of course, we all continue to wonder. But here is where Clint was different. He didn't just wonder. He acted. He started a club for kids, dedicated to peaceful Earth-saving actions. The first club was in his school, Sunny Hollow Elementary in New Hope, Minnesota.
After Clint died, his mother, Tessa, and father, William, carried on Clint's dream of a healthy planet by establishing Kids for Saving Earth(KSE) as a nonprofit organization. Tessa was a teacher so she new that the best way to educate and inspire children is through interested teachers and parents. Since 1989, Kids for Saving Earth has provided "Education into Action" curriculum to thousands of instructors and other adults. As a result there are now hundreds of thousands of kids and grown-ups all over the planet working to protect Earth. KSE kids gave speeches at the UN, rode on a KSE float in President Bill Clinton's inaugural parade, influenced environmental legislation, greened their schools and participated in thousands of other grass roots activities to help protect our environment.
A few examples of environmental programs KSE offers include: The Kids Campaign to Cool Earth - A to Z, The Promise Song, The Kids for Saving Earth Concert Kit, Become a Defender of the Planet, Clinton Hill's Tree of Life, CanCan Carnival, and much much more!
Kids for Saving Earth is a small non-profit organization with a big reach. Please consider donating to help kids protect our beautiful Earth.
