Eleanore's Kids was created shortly after the founder made a visit to the city of Zaporozhye, Ukraine. We began by collecting and shipping thousands of pounds of clothing, blankets, sporting goods and toys to various orphanages in that city.
We eventually learned about a very special internat, Kalinovka where, for over eighty years it had been the end of the road for children with severe disabilities.
We soon learned of another organization based in Zaporozhye, Happy Child. Happy Child was helping children living at the Kalinovka Internat (boarding school/orphanage). Eleanore's Kids is now partnering with Happy Child to assist in raising much needed funds.
Today, Eleanore's Kids is partnering with Happy Child to help raise much needed funds here in the United States and world-wide. Through our convenient link to PayPal, donors are able to easily make a financial donation which is forwarded to Happy Child to help the children at Kalinovka.
We encourage everyone to take a look at our website (eleanoreskids.org) and that of Happy Child (www.deti.zp.ua). There you will find more information and see just how easy it is to help make the lives of some very needy children just a little bit better and happier!
