If you are not familiar with the Zzak G Applaud Our Kids Foundation is an organization that aims to help children participate in the arts here at the Jersey Shore. Children who may not otherwise have been able to, due to financial limitations. It's a program that has grown and helped so many children take part in the arts at local academies and schools. The Applaud Our Kids Foundation continues to grow and we applaud their work.

"The mission of the Zzak G. Applaud Our Kids Foundation is to give children the opportunity to find their own voice, increase their self-esteem, give them a sense of belonging, and provide them with positive reinforcement through the performing arts."

According to their website, "the foundation provides 100% funding for children ages 7-18 who meet the financial needs requirements to take ongoing lessons in vocal instruction, dance, acting, and instrumental music for the entire school year and for summer programs."
