The other day Steven heard a story on the radio about a wonderful organization, Kitegang. They "seek to lift the spirits of children having few possessions or possibilities through the simple joy and curiosity brought by the sharing and flying of colorful kites."
Based in Minnesota, this non profit toy company manufactures kites and other toys in refugee camps, rural towns, and urban slums often using recycled materials. They don't just create toys, but also create jobs in these impoverished communities and use their profits to distribute kites to orphanages and schools that request them.
more info and really great photos here.
