Empathy· Art· USH

Kidz b Kidz is a non-profit that utilizes the power of empathy through art to raise awareness and funding for Usher Syndrome (USH).

In 2008, Kidz b Kidz emerged with the recognition that every child has a story about overcoming obstacles whether it is an illness, a disability, emotional or environmental challenges, and that it is important to connect children to the concept of putting themselves in someone else’s shoes to truly understand another person’s life. At KbK Art Parties, kids learned that simply by drawing a picture, we can give a voice and feelings to our stories in order to create empathy. The artwork created was transformed into KbK Products with Purpose and sold out in the world to carry the message of empathy and fund Kidz b Kidz initiatives.

In 2012, two of co-founder Nancy Corderman’s children were diagnosed with a rare genetic disease called Usher Syndrome (USH) and they are slowly losing their hearing and eyesight. USH is the most common genetic cause of combined deafness and blindness. Our Kidz b Kidz “story” is now about Usher Syndrome and, with the recognition that in order to understand Usher Syndrome, one first needs to learn empathy.

Today, Kidz b Kidz is working to raise awareness and funds for Usher Syndrome. We want the world to see through the eyes and ears of people with this disease so that we can find a cure!

Our mission continues as always, teaching the power of empathy through Art, however, with a renewed focus beyond just children to people of all ages who need to be aware of Usher syndrome.
