Guest Bio: Kayla Abramowitz is the Founder and CKO (Chief Kid Officer) of Kayla Cares 4 Kids, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. She began the organization by collecting entertainment and educational items to donate to children’s hospitals in an effort to help children feel better. The now 14-year-old came up with the idea after extended hospital stays of her own, in addition to her 11-year-old brother Ethan’s numerous hospital trips, due to chronic illness. Kayla has Crohn’s Disease, Juvenile Arthritis and Eosinophilic Colitis. Ethan has Juvenile Arthritis, Eosinophilic Esophagitis, and he uses a feeding machine. She named the project “Kayla Cares 4 Kids” and enlisted the help of her family. When it started in March of 2013, Kayla’s original goal was to collect 100 DVDs to donate to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, but a newspaper article about her in the Palm Beach Post brought in an overwhelming response of donations. With more than 12,000 items collected and donated to date, Kayla is working as hard as ever to “Helping Sick Kids Feel Better One Smile At A Time!” Have a little fun and check out her website here: http://www.kaylacares4kids.org/
