We inspire kids to grow up smarter, healthier and kinder

Kody’s Kids was created to inspire preschool and kindergarten kids from all communities and circumstances to read and to enhance their lives by learning healthy habits and kindness to others that will enrich their school years.

Our outreach programs consist of, The Early Learning Program, Community Student Award, and the Comfort Quilts Project. Each one is designed to help kids reach their highest potential and to give comfort to those experiencing illness.


Kody’s Kids is named after the organization’s official Ambassador, Kody O’Bear.

Kody O’Bear is a 6-foot animated and talking teddy bear who inspires kids to learn and be the best they can. This is done by teaming up with volunteer teachers for class visits and media productions. Kody O’Bear has been referred to as Roll Model, Mentor, Hero, and by one young student, “My reading hero”.

Since our beginning in 2001, we’ve helped thousands of kids and we are making a difference.

Kody’s Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and relies on donations for continued operation. We appreciate your tax-deductible (as outlined by the IRS) contribution which helps us fulfill our mission.
