Aidan is a 17-year-old musician, speaker, and singer/songwriter, but his heart is to teach others to give from their passion. Aidan Cares is an awareness initiative to encourage giving and serving.

Aidan wants kids to realize the gifts in giving and how they can use their passions to apply to a greater cause. That is one where they are given the chance to meet the needs of others and experience something they can use the rest of their lives.

Whether it’s helping others, animals, or the planet, there is a giver inside your child (and you!). Aidan wants to help bring that gift forward by encouraging you to go for it with his videos on how to start and where to find all the worthy charities who need your support.

It’s about making you feel great about giving so you do it forever. Aidan has found his passion and way to serve. And all ages need this message.
