Universal Children’s Week - 8 Great Quotes

Universal Children’s Week is celebrated throughout the world during the month of October.

If it were up to me, we would celebrate children every day of the year. Children are our hope for the future. They should be mentored, guided, educated and loved. Celebrating children and their dreams and diversity is what Kids Without Stuff is all about. Join us in celebrating Universal Children’s Week this week and throughout the year.
