About the CEO
Hi Every One !
My name is Kylie De Croos, and I am a current junior living in the sunny state of California. I have always been passionate about helping children in need, as I am fortunate enough to be living in such an amazing state today!
With thorough thought and consideration, I have started a nonprofit organization called Natural Kindness! Natural Kindness is a non-profit organization structured to help provide for kids in need in third-world countries. This organization was primarily inspired by my two parents who both came from third-world countries and have had an extremely hard life growing up, but I also have my own experience that I would like to share. A few years back, at the age of 12, I had the incredible opportunity to visit my parents’ birth place of Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful countries you could ever visit, but it is definitely a country that is in poverty. One day on our vacation trip, my dad decided to take us on a river ride down in a smaller village that he knew of. Of course, my young self had no expectations and thought the best of this boat ride. Little did I know, this one experience would change my life, and open my eyes up to something bigger I could have never imagined. Mind you, I had never had any experience with being or witnessing people in poverty, as I had such a privileged life growing up.
My life was handed to me on a silver platter. As I went down this river, I saw a numerous amount of families living in terrible conditions. There were people drinking water and bathing in this unsanitary water. They lived in homes that barely kept a roof over their heads. The insufferable and gruesome environment that these villagers lived in shocked me and left me in complete awe. The worst part of all, these children did not have the opportunity to attend school and receive an education, as they had to work to help support and sustain their families and make a slight earning. After seeing this, I realized that I needed to help in any way that I possibly could. So many kids around the world do not have the same privileges that we have here living in America. With that in mind, helping those kids in any way possible seems like an amazing thing to do.
That is how Natural Kindness came to action. Our goal in this non-profit organization is to raise money by doing various events every month. Whether it’s hosting a talent show, or something as simple as creating a lemonade stand, the objective at the end of the day is to donate the money raised to kids in need all over the world. Natural Kindness will also have a bottle drive, where we collect plastic bottles and cans for money. We ask kind souls to donate recyclables of any sort, and we trade them in for proceeds that go to such a beautiful cause. We hope to put this plan into action so we can impact kids’ daily lives all over the world!

What is a HIKES FOR HAPPINESS?
HIKES FOR HAPPINESS is where the Natural Kindness team will be hiking for donations! We will be doing several hikes all across California in hopes of donations for motivation! We will be doing a total of 10 hikes in the span of a few months. we hope to reach a goal of $2,000 from these hikes, so please donate! Every donation counts to reach our anticipated goal. if our goal is reached, we will finally be able to visit Sri Lanka at the end of this year to start building our school for the children of this country (due to COVID-19, we will have to make adjustments accordingly). Keep an eye out for our blog and social media posts!

Hey Everyone! After about 2 hours and 50 bags later in the scorching hot sun, we finally sorted out all the bottles and cans that were donated! We had to wait about an hour and a half just to get into the recycling center (I don’t recommend going in the afternoon,...
Thank you to those who have helped us out in donating bottles and cans. It is people such as you that make our world a better place! We collected so many bags of bottles and cans from just 3 houses. It may seem like a small number, but I know with your help, we can...
