We started the Students For Kids’ Sake International (FKSI) RSO because it would allow us to utilize the many resources of living near a college campus and expand FKSI further. More importantly, it also allowed us to get more involved to lead and serve this global cause in our own personal way, and to share an organization that we care so much about with other students of all different backgrounds. It has helped us meet new, like-minded students, come up with new ideas to help support FKSI, and also reminded us of why we do this. Through Students For Kids’ Sake International, other students can find opportunities to serve such a wonderful cause and stay globally-minded. They can be inspired by and get involved with such a strong community, and get real world experience. Out of all the places I have volunteered at, For Kids’ Sake International welcomes everyone with open arms, open hearts, and open minds the most. Not only does this cause inspire me and make what we do so rewarding, but I am surrounded by some of the most genuine and kind people I have ever met in my life which makes me a better human being and better able to change this world.
