We are firm believers that the children in our lives are the future. What they learn and the values they follow today will make them strong, independent individuals tomorrow. Our Lace Kidz consists of our daughters, granddaughters, nieces, sons, grandsons ,nephews or child that is sponsored by a Lace Sister.
Lace Kidz are divided into three groups:
Future Lace: Girls 3 up to age 12
Teen Lace: Girls aged 13 thru 18
Big Sister/Mentor: Girls 19 thru 21
Lil Brothers: All boys up to age 19
Future Lace can purchase a top rocker and start their own, unique Lace vest.
Our Teen Lace can earn a Teen Lace top rocker.
What are they doing now?
Lace Kidz are learning the heartfelt meaning of Random Acts of Kindness. Each month they will be given new challenges to show others there is still kindness in the world. Through these tasks, our kids will be adding positive messages to each of the individuals they encounter within their communities. That intern will spread positive vibrations throughout the world.
Our November RAK were:
1. Donate food to a church, homeless shelter, even the grocery store. Let’s give everyone something to be thankful for.
2. When you go to the doctor or anywhere with a waiting room, leave coloring books, puzzle books or children books for younger kidz. Dollar Tree is a great place to get them.
3. November 11th is Veterans Day. Say “Thank You” to a Vet, take flowers to the cemetery for the military or the local VA or call your local American Legion or VFW & ask how you can help.
4. Send a card to one of your Aunts or someone special to you.
5. Pick a child off an Angel Tree. They can be found at Walmart, Target, schools or your local Social Services office.
6. What can you do? This one is your choice. What random act will you do?
Here are some of our Lace Kidz making a difference:
Here we have Aiden and Triston visiting with Delfie. He is a Vietnam Vet. He was in the Navy from 1960 to 1964 and worked on the rebuilt U.S.S. Hornet.
Maddex and Alex got caught helping a stranger put groceries in her car.
Alex caught in the act of donating food.
Here we have Ian… A very busy young man. He visited with one of our Vets & gave him a card, served the needy, left books in a waiting room, helped his 80 yr old neighbor load his car and donated/helped stock food pantry shelves! Rock on Ian!
What’s in store for a Lace Kidz?
Our Kidz love to receive cards from their Lace Sponsors’ friends (Aunts). Receiving cards for a Birthday or Christmas can brighten a Kidz day. We also want to recognize our Kidz for special achievements such as great grades, improved report card, or helping someone in their community.
We have a Leather & Lace MC Facebook that is open to the public. This is a way for everyone to see just how great our Kidz are. A way to show who did what in a contest or how a project went at school. No last names or personal information is ever given out.
Mid-Summers is a yearly event held during the summer for Lace Sisters and their families. A hotel is taken over for a 3-5 day get together. This is a time for our Kidz to meet & learn about each other. This is where friendships and connections are made that can last a lifetime. Today they play together; tomorrow they ride together. Summer, sisters, family and motorcycles always make for a great time.
Learning and growing
Lace Kidz are encouraged to get involved. We want our Kidz to learn how important it is to reach out to others. When our Lace Kidz help out with events, in even a small way, it can be a rewarding experience. Working hard at various Lace events provides our Kidz knowledge and an understanding about the importance of helping others in need. It is imperative to do our best in helping our Kidz be all that they can be. The things they learn now will stay with them forever.
