New York, NY (PRWEB) February 20, 2008 — Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. (K.I.D.S.), a global charity of leading retailers, manufacturers and licensors of children’s and youth products, launched a new and expanded website to better serve the needs of product donors, cash contributors and individuals seeking information about the 23-year-old organization.

The site is powerful and informative and enables users to easily browse through the concise sections and pages. The site also provides accessible tools to donate products or contribute cash to our organization.

"Our new website reflects the K.I.D.S. mission to improve the lives of children in distress while providing clear and direct functionality for our users," said Rick Schaub, K.I.D.S. Board Chairman. "The site is powerful and informative and enables users to easily browse through the concise sections and pages. The site also provides accessible tools to donate products or contribute cash to our organization."    

While retaining the address of its previous site, www.kidsdonations.org, the new site features an animated opening video explaining that "Promises Made" become "Promises Delivered" through the distribution of new clothes, books, toys and other products to children in need. K.I.D.S. distributed over $61 million worth of new products in 2007 to children and their families through a network of some 1,000 local agencies, consisting of homeless shelters, foster-care facilities, church groups, after-school programs and programs serving military families.

The home page of the site shows four sections -Impact on KIDS, About K.I.D.S., How to Help, and Supporters & Partners – to which readers can go for information, ranging from descriptions of the organization’s program initiatives to lists of its product donors and local agency partners. Menu bars on the home page enable readers to go directly to a News & Events section or to access and download a product donation form or make cash donations via credit card.
