Kid Zenith is made up of 15 children ages 3 to 16 from Peterborough, Hancock, Francestown and Marlborough. Kid Zenith's mission is to teach the children about design, business and making a difference, with the profits benefiting the education of children around the world.
"It's important for all kids to have a good education so they all have that sturdy foundation to eventually get them wherever they want," said Kid Zenith member Emil Hristache, 14, of Hancock.
"Before this I thought social media was only used for purely social reasons, but I learned that it can be used to spread the word about social issues and if you use it the right way it can make a big difference," Louise said.
The group continued each year, holding yard sales, selling candied apples at Hancock's Old Homes Day and doing yard work.
Last year, two of the families took a vacation to Costa Rica and while there took a day to visit a school and donate school supplies.
"For me at the beginning it was having fun and helping other people. Working with your friends to do something for someone else," but it has grown into so much more now said Gwen Jones, 14, of Peterborough.
