Founded by Sarasota businessman and philanthropist Rod Khleif, since 2001 Rod Khleif’s Tiny Hands Foundation has led charitable initiatives benefiting over 25,000 children and families in need in Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties.
Rod Khleif’s Tiny Hands Foundation’s annual charitable initiatives include:
1) Holiday Basket Brigade: On Saturday December 20, 2014 at the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota, Rod Khleif’s Tiny Hands Foundation along with the assistance of hundreds of volunteers will assemble and deliver 1,500 Holiday Gift Baskets filled with food and toys to be given to our community children and families in need.
1) Back-to-School Backpack Brigade: In August this year Rod Khleif’s Tiny Hands Foundation along with the assistance of more than 250 volunteers provided 1,500 new backpacks filled with school supplies to be given to our community school children in need.
1) Teddy Bear Brigade: In November Rod Khleif’s Tiny Hands Foundation provides teddy bears for each Bradenton and Sarasota police department patrol car. These teddy bears ride along in our community police cars and are given out by police officers to comfort children they encounter who may be in distress.
“My goal is that our acts of kindness create ripple effects that touch and improve thousands of lives,” says Khleif. “If we make a difference in one person’s life and inspire a better future for him or her, it will make this all worthwhile”, says Khleif.
$30 sponsors a local family. “Every dime goes towards food and toys,” says Khleif. Your generosity is deeply appreciated. Rod Khleif’s Tiny Hands Foundation is a 501c3 charity and all donations are tax-deductible. Those who are interested to help the Rod Khleif’s Tiny Hands Foundation can contact:
