The Loukoumi Make A Difference Foundation teaches children to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others, uniting over 100,000 children annually to do good deeds. Come From Away is the award winning musical telling the ultimate story of kindness about how during the week of 9/11, 7,000 stranded airline passengers found a safe harbor in Newfoundland while the world around them was thrown into chaos. Together The Loukoumi Foundation and Come From Away have partnered to share the stories of over 50 children who are having fun paying it forward for causes that mean something to them. Get ready to be inspired by these extraordinary kids who are changing the world one good deed at a time, and join us in making a difference!
Inspired by the Loukoumi children's book series by Nick Katsoris, The Loukoumi Make A Difference Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization teaching children to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. Starting in 2008 with the release of the book “Loukoumi's Good Deeds” narrated by Jennifer Aniston, the Loukoumi movement now unites over 100,000 children annually to do good deeds for causes that mean something to them. Children learn that good deeds can be fun as they make a difference in their own special way.
The Loukoumi Foundation has received the USA Weekend National Make A Difference Day Award, Tegna's Make A Difference Day All-Star Award and The Point of Light Award. The Loukoumi Foundation sponsors The Make A Difference With Loukoumi Exhibit at The Westchester Children's Museum and a Good Deed of the Month Curriculum in over 300 schools. This month the Loukoumi Foundation will open the Loukoumi Foundation treatment room and literacy program at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital funded by kids’ donations. The Loukoumi Foundation also sponsors its annual Dream Day contest making kids' career dreams come true for a day. The Loukoumi programs were featured in the Make A Difference With Loukoumi TV Special that aired on FOX stations nationwide. The Foundation is honored to be teaming up with Come From Away, which tells the ultimate story of kindness, and with them looks forward to inspiring others to make a difference.
