Most Valuable Kids believes that sporting and entertainment events are too often an experience only middle- and upper-class families can afford, and that children from low-income families often miss out on the opportunity to see their role models in person. To change this, MVK provides disadvantaged kids with tickets to sporting and entertainment events, donated by ticket holders who can't use them.
The process is simple: ticket holders can head to mostvaluablekids.org to register and donate their tickets, which are then made available to youth-based organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Ronald McDonald House. After an organization claims tickets they can use, the tickets are mailed, couriered, or reissued at the box office from the donor to the recipient organization — and your tickets land in the hands of underprivileged children instead of the garbage.
Since its inception in 2001, MVK has given over 70 thousand tickets to deserving children. Want to help out?
