Welcome and thanks for your interest in supporting InspireMyKids!  

Over the last 5 years, www.InspireMyKids.com (IMK) has become the world's largest online community of inspiration for children. 

Each day, our kid-appropriate, inspiring stories, quotes and activities are helping thousands of children in over 100 countries around the world become the best version of themselves and take action to make the world a better place.

It is a growing responsibility that we are humbled by and take very seriously. As the headlines we read each day become more disturbing and our children are exposed to more and more negative influences, we believe that our mission has never been more important.

So, for the first time in our history, we are asking for financial support, to dramatically improve our website, our content and our impact on the world's children and on your children.

Up to now, our website has been entirely self-funded. But as our traffic grows and people want more from us, our costs have been rising substantially.

Up to this point, we have not accepted advertising or membership fees.  We've felt these would compromise the experience we provide and potentially limit access to those who may need our content most.

So, while we will continue to aggressively invest our own money in order to get to the next level of impact, we need to invite our community to consider their financial support which will enable us to really put our foot on the gas.  With your help, we can develop more regular and diverse inspirational content and programs to support children whether for: 
  • sparking motivation
  • building character and enhancing social/emotional learning
  • helping make the world a better place
  • improving problem behaviors
  • developing key values that the world's children need, such as empathy, honesty and perseverance
  • providing more parent and educator support materials
  • creating more actions that children can take to improve themselves and the world around them

For those of you who do not know us, we are Mike and Kevin - co-founders, college roommates, husbands, best men at each others weddings and dads.

We created InspireMyKids because it’s something we wanted for our kids. Like all parents, we want to try to do whatever we can to help our kids become the best version of themselves and people who value what matters most, whether it’s helping others, showing compassion, acting bravely, being a good citizen, or persisting in challenging times.

Recognized by the American Library Association (ALA), IMK is included in the ALA’s exclusive list of Great Websites for Kids and is used in thousands of schools in over a hundred countries around the world.

We appreciate your consideration and invite you to support our mission, our growth and our impact.  Please review our different support levels and if you don't see a level that meets your needs, feel free to reach out to us directly at [email protected].

With sincere gratitude,

Mike Stutman and Kevin Conklin

We are seeking our first $1,000 in pledges by the end of 2018. Gulp!  We are new to this, but excited by the prospect of what it could do to improve the amount and quality of content that we provide to our audience.

Help us blow this goal away!  And help us change the world.
