How many times have you been to a sporting event, the theater or the symphony and happen to see a good seat or even an excellent seat completely empty?


TicKids got started in 2008 when we realized how very often event tickets go unused. So we created a
forum where charities can enrich the lives of less-fortunate children while creating valuable tax
incentives for businesses and individuals. It’s the perfect way to turn a loss into victory! That’s the idea behind Texas TicKids, a NonProfit 501(c)(3) organization that enhances children’s lives by allowing them to fill unused event seats.


Since our beginning, TicKids has been actively helping less-fortunate children enjoy big sporting
events and live shows. We’re excited to find new ways to get our kids involved in the action.

The Beginning!

Texas TicKids was born with an original donation from David Weekley Co. of $10,000, forming a 501(c)(3), building a board and hiring a director.

Reached 275 Charities!

We have 275 participating charities.  We have sent over 3000 kids and chaperones to Disney on Ice at Reliant in the last 4 years.

75K Tickets!

75,000 tickets placed to date involving 400 participating charities

100K Tickets!
