Sarah pours her heart out as she sings into her favorite hairbrush and aspires to stand on a Broadway stage.
Sam plays chords on an air guitar and dreams of being in a rock band. Elisa pivots on her tiptoes in front of her mirror as she imagines what life would be like in the New York City Ballet.
These three children want so desperately to creatively express themselves, but financial challenges prevent them from doing so. That’s where we come in. With your help, the Zzak G. Applaud Our Kids Foundation can provide children with the resources they need to turn their dreams into reality.
Zzak G's Birthday was June 5th, and we are celebrating our 5-year anniversary. Help us celebrate by making a donation of $5 or more. Our goal is to raise $2,500 in the month of June. From one county in NJ to now supporting children in nine counties. Students are counting on us to help them connect to an ongoing creative outlet. It is truly a lifeline for them.
