Just over 40 kids who care turned up for the Vernon launch of 100 Kids Who Care at Kalview Cafe Tuesday night. The organization, which follows in the footsteps of 100 Men Who Give a Damn and 100 Women Who Care, is a group of local youth between the ages of 5 and 17 that donates $10 of their own money four times a year to three member-nominated charities that make a positive impact in the world.

More fun from the night the launch
