Children First Academy - Helping Homeless & At-Risk Children
July 24, 2010 [Links and other information updated July 30, 2011; Last update: June 2012]
Children First Academy (CFA), the USA’s largest school for homeless and at-risk children, is in need of help to supply their students with life’s basic necessities. CFA has two schools located in Arizona, USA. Many of these children go without basics such as food, water and clothing, and often don't even stay at the same place every night – no place to call home. The one thing the children can count on is going to school every day – these schools.
You can help by sending items from their ongoing Critical Needs List. Please note: all shoe sizes listed are in U.S. sizes; if you're outside the US and wish to send shoes but can't order sizes, you can try to find the correct size to send here.

***UPDATE: June 2012 – Our current Michael’s Angels badges, the first of which has been active for more than 2 and a half years, will be retired at the end of this month (badges assigned to members will remain on their profiles). While the badges are being retired, the efforts to carry on Michael Jackson’s humanitarian legacy will not! We encourage you to continue to support the charities, programs and initiatives we’ve highlighted so far in our Michael’s Angels program. We encourage you to keep volunteering and supporting charities that speak to your heart. Keep helping others; keep protecting the planet; keep doing what you do to make the world a better place and being an example to others, encouraging them to help heal the world.
