To The World Inc.



A nonprofit organization practicing shoestring philanthropy for kids who need us.

Our Story

This web site was set up to support a small nonprofit called To the World. Inc. We set this up to make it easier for our friends and family and community to help us help some deserving at-risk-kids we have grown to love in the urban core of Kansas City, MO. By accident, we found ourselves working with kids who often came to school hungry. They were often homeless and slept in cars. Sometimes they came to school with no socks in the winter and coats that were too thin. We learned they lived in neighborhoods where drive-by shooting were common, and they couldn't play outside because it simply was not safe.  They often were surrounded by hundreds of condemned houses, and their parents were doing the best they could.


It was clear these children did not have enough. 


It was also clear we had more than enough.


So we started to ask our community for help.


With kids it really is true: to the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
