This nonprofit was created with the intent of bringing social and global issues into communities, and giving those communities the challenge of acting.  MAD4Kids was founded by students at Eisenhower Middle School in Wyckoff NJ and Ramapo High School in Franklin Lakes NJ who meet after school to organize activities that make a difference for kids in our communities and around the world.  They raise awareness and funds for United Nations Girl Up, Invisible Children, and Two Degrees among others.

For the past two years, members of MAD4kids from Wyckoff NJ, Birmingham MI, and Guatemala City, Guatemala, joined together in rural Guatemala. They installed cookstoves with HELPS International, helped build a school out of recycled bottles with Hug It Forward, and spent time with kids at Safe Passage. 24 youths aged 12-19 improved the lives of over fifty families, demonstrating that kids can make a difference.

Hug It Forward
Hug It Forward is a grass-roots organization that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities in Latin America to build “bottle schools.”

Bottle schools are schools built using “eco-bricks:” plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash. Entire communities come together to make the dream of educational opportunity a reality, by building their own bottle school.

Hug It Forward’s goal is to share the bottle school technology so that communities all over the world can build their own bottle school.
