I was so excited to be invited to this year’s Save the Children's Gala on behalf of Johnson & Johnson. J&J is a long-term partner with Save the Children in their efforts to give children around the world a better start to life, focusing on ending preventable child
deaths and supporting early childhood education. This evening is particularly special for J&J as this year Johnson & Johnson Chief Human Resources Officer, Peter Fasolo, joined the Save the Children Board of Directors. In celebration of Save the Children’s 100th anniversary in 2019, J&J announced they will be gifting Save the Children’s Wisdom by Kids program that works to support countless children in need across America and abroad.
Wisdom by Kids is such a fun and unique way to capture your child's favorite memorable lines. As the site explains, "It's so wonderfully simple. You save their words. We make some magic. You share with friends." It's so easy, when your child says something you would love to share with others, type it into the site, they analyze it and create a unique piece of art that brings your Childs quote to life. But the best part is, when you share it on social media, J&J will donate $1 to Save the Children, up to $1 million dollars! I can only imagine the fun we will have sharing some of Ellie's one liners that we often forget! Not only that, but by doing so we're helping a great cause. At the gala, it was great to see the website in action at their Wisdom by Kids activation during the cocktail hour before the dinner, check out the video below for a closer look!

The night was so inspiring; it was wonderful to see how much J&J is doing for Save the Children. They are reaching children in over 120 countries, but the work is not done yet! In the words of Peter Fasolo in his speech last night, "In a world where we face challenges every single day, the simple words of children often reflect messages of peace and healing. On behalf of all of our 140,000 associates of Johnson & Johnson, we hope that Wisdom by Kids helps Save the Children raise awareness, garner support, spread messages of peace and healing from the words of children".
So what are you waiting for? Head over to the website and support an amazing cause that is truly making a positive impact in the lives of children worldwide!
