The Winning Kids Club is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity organization that serves children and adults. Our Believe in Yourself and Win! programs promote confidence, self-esteem and unique educational opportunities, including reading programs, creative writing, acting and theatre, academic tutoring, Braille, after school programs, and homeschooling assistance.
Our hearts are heavy to report that on October 8, 2015, Paxton the Winning Kids Club mascot and Comfort Therapy Dog passed away.
Her younger sister, Venus, is grieving and depressed from the loss of her biological sister.
Although Venus is not a Comfort Therapy dog, she is a wonderful and sweet Saint Bernard who loves children and is very friendly.
To help Venus work through her sadness, on October 17, 2015, the Winning Kids Club adopted a new Saint Bernard puppy to be Venus' new pal.
Her new sister, Kalli, was named after goddess Kaliope, the goddess of literature and art.
Kalli is being trained as a Comfort Therapy and Reading Dog to help encourage children to read and write.
Families are invited to a
