Our family has always placed a high value on community service and volunteering. We were all born in South Africa and have seen firsthand the effect of poverty in our country. Our late President, Nelson Mandela famously said “It is in your hands, to make a better world for all who live in it.”
This is something we all strive to live by.
In 2011-2012 our families moved to the USA and we started a brand-new life here. One thing that was consistent was our dedication to charitable work.
In 2017, Nicholas Kuhn, father of Michael and Christian passed unexpectedly due to a massive heart attack. This impacted the entire family both in the USA and South Africa.
What stood out for us was the overwhelming support we received from our community here in Tampa, Fl. The true generosity, kindness and love we received from friends and strangers, helped us through this tragedy. We realized how just small acts of kindness made a difference in our lives when we were suffering.
This motivated us to start “Giving Back” to our community. Our initial goal was to start with random acts of kindness, but this rapidly grew into monthly projects that supported many different causes in our community. We have now established Kids 4 A Cause, Inc which is a registered 501( c ) 3 non profit organization.
January is off to a good start with this fabulous organization. The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay brings help, hope and healing to people facing serious life challenges or trauma resulting from sexual assault, suicidal thoughts, domestic violence, financial distress or emotional or situational problems.
So many people right now are in crisis and need help. Please consider helping us help them.
