About the Calendar Kids Program

The Calendar Kids Program provides an opportunity for pediatric patients to express themselves through artwork and to receive national recognition while increasing awareness of kidney disease throughout the United States. The program is supported by an educational donation provided by Amgen.

The Votes Are In! Washington’s Madison Gordon Wins Cover Art Contest

More than 4,200 people voted to select the cover art for the American Kidney Fund’s 2015 calendar from among the 13 talented winners of this year’s Calendar Kids Art Contest. Thank you to everyone who voted!

Madison Gordon, 18, from Goldbar, Wash., received the most votes for her entry, which she calls “Love Life.” Her drawing was inspired on a particularly tough day at dialysis; she was surprised to see her dialysis tubing had formed itself into the shape of a heart.  

Congratulations to Madison, who will be an honored guest at the American Kidney Fund’s annual gala, The Hope Affair, in Washington, D.C., in October 2014.

And congratulations to the other winners of the Calendar Kids Art Contest, whose work will appear throughout our 2015 calendar.
