This community-wide communications campaign was designed to inspire hope and promote health of Flint area kids. The message of the campaign is that Flint Kids Are strong, smart, healthy, creative and capable of achieving anything that they set their minds to – and they are going to prove it to you.
The Flint water crisis has had a significant impact on the lives of Flint children. The Flint Kids Are campaign gives kids a way to tell their own story, using their own words.
“Our Flint Kids amaze and inspire me every day,” says Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, Director, Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative. “This campaign is critically important because it allows Flint kids to share with other Flint kids their incredible message of hope, strength and positivity.”
The campaign belongs to the community and was developed in collaboration with the Greater Flint Health Coalition, Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, National Basketball Players Association, and the United Way of Genesee County. Funding for the campaign is provided by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
