We can make a difference in our local and global communities!
What We Do
— Finding Problems & Funding Solutions
Kids United Foundation aims to identify the most pressing problems around the world and provide the most compelling and affective solutions. If we cannot directly impact change on a particular issue, we will stop at nothing to fund someone who can.
— Communal Baby Showers in Developing Countries
Kids United Foundation organizes communal baby showers for expecting mothers in developing countries. These baby showers provide a way for mommies-to-be to receive any and all baby supplies they need. In most cases, these mothers do not have any other way of getting essential baby supplies.
— Project H.E.R.O.
H.E.R.O. stands for Honoring Every Ranger Overseas. Project H.E.R.O. is an initiative to send care packages to deployed Army Rangers. These care packages will include candy, toiletries, and things that remind the soldiers of home, along with hand-written letters of encouragement by students from a local elementary school.
— Feeding The Homeless of Miami
Kids United Foundation is dedicated to feeding the starving homeless population of Miami. They are currently about 1,400 unsheltered homeless people in Miami, and we will not stop until they all have a reliable way getting food. We firmly believe nobody should have to go hungry!
Who We Are
KUF-Kids United Foundation is an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to making a positive difference in our local and global communities.
From a very young age, Byron Jack Figueredo (pictured left) has always loved helping people in need, but there was always something standing in the way of his doing that—his age! After missing out on an opportunity to go to the Dominican Republic on a relief mission with his church because he was too young, Byron had finally had enough. He promised himself that he would never let his age get in the way of helping people again.
Byron realized that the best and only way he could affect real change at such a young age (15 years old) was to start and be the head of his own organization. He asked his mom (pictured right) for help in navigating the maze of red tape that is the IRS; recruited 4 of his friends to be on the board of directors; and just like that, KUF-Kids United Foundation was born.
