Kansas City, MO (November 1, 2018) Children International has selected RKD Group to provide media and creative services to increase awareness of child poverty and secure sponsors to transform the lives of children on a global scale.

There are more than a billion children living in poverty. 663 million people without access to safe drinking water. 57 million kids not in school. 795 million undernourished men, women and children.

RKD has been selected to partner with Children International’s continued digital transformation to elevate the organization’s critical message and generate support through child sponsors to break the cycle of poverty.

Amanda Wasson, SVP of RKD Group, explains, “We are honored to partner with an organization who is helping make the world more humane, just and compassionate. RKD Group’s charge is more than marketing strategy and execution—this work is about connecting people with their purpose and changing lives through child sponsorship.”

The RKD Group-Children International partnership began earlier this month, with immediate plans for new creative and innovation to be in-market for the year-end giving season.

“We are excited to partner with RKD Group to help support our vision of bringing people together to end poverty for good” says Teresa Gaffney, Director of Audience Marketing, Children International.
