Kiddie Academy Continues Support of Family Promise's Night Without a Bed Campaign

October 23, 2023 // Franchising.com // ABINGDON, Md. - Kiddie Academy Educational Child Care will mark a third consecutive year participating in Family Promise’s Night Without a Bed campaign, a national social media challenge and fundraising effort aimed to raise awareness about family homelessness.

“We are thrilled to have Kiddie Academy as a partner in the fight against family homelessness,” said Family Promise Chief Development Officer Mike Kerkorian. “Their commitment to this cause is inspiring, and we are confident that, together, we can make a real difference in the lives of families in need.”

Family homelessness is a pressing issue affecting millions of families across the United States - many families spend their nights without a bed, facing uncertain and unstable living conditions. To highlight this issue, Family Promise will host its national campaign effort on Oct. 21, while Kiddie Academy encourages its franchised locations across the country to spend any evening this year supporting the campaign.

Individuals or Kiddie Academy franchised locations are invited to select a night to sleep somewhere other than their beds - a tent in the backyard, a sleeping bag on the living room floor or any other creative sleeping arrangement - and then arrange and promote a corresponding fundraiser.

In addition to supporting Family Promise’s mission to help families achieve sustainable independence, Kiddie Academy hopes that the campaign will facilitate age-appropriate conversations that build compassion and empathy in young participants.

“Night Without a Bed is a powerful event that allows participants to better relate to families experiencing homelessness,” said Kerkorian. “By encouraging communities to spend an evening without a bed, we can help to shine a light on this important issue and inspire people to take action.”

Kiddie Academy’s total contributions to Family Promise are expected to exceed $100,000 by the end of the year. The funds will help support local affiliate locations working with families that are experiencing or at risk of homelessness in communities across the country, in addition to supporting case manager training, advocacy efforts and resource development for affiliates.
