80 million people—right now—are struggling to survive in areas uprooted by violence and disaster. 60 million of those individuals are moms and kids. One in four children in the United States lives in poverty. Every minute, 13 children ages four and younger worldwide die from preventable or treatable causes. Families in 120 countries need the kind of help only international relief agencies like Save the Children will even attempt to provide.

When life gets very hard for anyone, it gets harder for us all. Here at KCL, as mothers ourselves, we dedicate what we save through couponing not just to supporting our own families, but to helping families around the world. Join us in getting involved with Save the Children, one of KCL's favorite charities. Together, we can save the children—literally.

Learn what you need to know about Save the Children, a worldwide humanitarian relief organization that has been providing aid to refugees, indigents, women, children, and families since 1919.
