“I Do What I Can!” is an initiative for children in grades 1-6 who demonstrate outstanding help, support or encouragement to a younger child … inspired by the ever-helpful character Ramone from the PBS KIDS program Peg + Cat!

Ramone is a cheerful older boy who goes above and beyond to offer a helping hand to his younger friends, Peg & Cat, as well as other characters in the series. Ramone always seems to be there to help solve problems. His signature statement is “I do what I can!”

In that spirit, this initiative seeks to encourage children to do the same. Every child who is nominated will be recognized, and one child will receive an award for going above and beyond. We’re receiving nominations through December 31, 2018.

Do you know a child (or children) who deserve to be recognized for their kindness? Here’s how to nominate them for the “I Do What I Can” award:
