A Message From Rod Khleif
Dear Friends and Family,
The Tiny Hands Foundation is starting an annual Back-to-School Backpack Brigade! In August 2014 the Tiny Hands Foundation, along with the assistance of hundreds of friends, donors, and volunteers will attempt to put together and give away 1500 backpacks filled with school supplies to benefit our community’s children in need. The backpacks will be presented to the children along with a card that says: “This is from someone who loves you.”
It’s a Fact
One in five children in our community is growing up beneath the poverty level. Many families struggle financially so that their children can be prepared for school. Children should not have to go without the supplies they need to succeed in school. Many families we’re helping are single parent families with multiple children: back-to-school expenses are often overwhelming for a family that is already struggling to make ends meet.
Together We Can Help
The Back-to-School Backpack Brigade is an important charitable initiative that will positively impact thousands of less fortunate children in our community, this year, and for many years to come. To launch the Back-to-School Backpack Brigade, we are seeking volunteers, donors, and fundraisers. We are inviting corporations, organizations, groups, troops, teams and individuals that are willing to work with us to launch this important initiative. Those who are interested to help us can contact:

If by providing a new backpack and school supplies, we can make a difference in one child’s life to help inspire a better future for him or her, it will make this worthwhile.
Since 2001 the Tiny Hands Foundation, along with the assistance of hundreds of friends, donors, and volunteers has prepared and delivered Holiday Gift Baskets filled with food and Christmas toys to over 20,000 underprivileged children and families throughout Sarasota and Manatee Counties. A 501c3 charity started in 2007 by Mr. Rod Khleif, a Sarasota-based real estate philanthropist, Tiny Hands has helped over 20,000 children deal with the hardship of poverty.
