Jennifer Garner was out and about in Washington DC on Thursday, June 24, to talk about the k2kUSA program at the Rayburn House Office Building.
The actress helped launch the campaign’s Text-ition, a text petition kids can join to show their support for the k2kUSA campaign. This text petition is an historic ‘first’ — a new way to build and activate an army of advocates.
k2kUSA is an advocacy campaign that empowers kids to connect with and advocate for each other to ensure a fair chance in life for every kid in America. Central to ensuring fairness for all kids is ending the childhood poverty crisis, which affects one in six kids in America.
k2kUSA is a project of Save the Children's U.S. programs, the leading organization in America working to reverse the effects of childhood poverty through public-private partnership programs on early childhood education, literacy, physical activity and nutrition, and disaster relief, serving more than 18,000 kids in 13 states.
“I’m so glad that we are harnessing the power of kids and texting to demonstrate the importance of early childhood education,” said Save the Children Artist Ambassador Jennifer Garner. “The new k2kUSA campaign is a potent new advocacy tool that gives a voice to kids and their families so that all kids have a fair start in life. I’m thrilled kgb is supporting our efforts with their unique and forceful ‘Text-ition’ that will send our message to members of Congress.”
Anyone who wants to be counted as part of the Kids-to-Kids “Text-ition” initiative can simply text “K2KUSA” to 542542 at no charge to register their support for Garner’s initiative.
