Leanne Joyce began her philanthropic work by starting Positive Impact for Kids Inc. at the age of 11. Two years later the 501 (c) (3) is still running strong with a fully volunteer based board of directors. The Non-Profit is focused on raising money to provide children’s hospitals with items such as iPads, game systems, painted mural ceilings in treatment rooms, and interactive playrooms, with the idea of making the experience less daunting.

All of the funding for Leanne’s non-profit is through private contributions and operates on a minimal annual budget. She is adamant about maintaining the organizations website (positiveimpactforkids.org) and hopes to continuously make a difference in many children’s lives.
