LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Last year, four girls had an idea to help children in the Clark County foster care system.

11-year-old Zoe Arbour, 15-year-old Hannah Ohel, 13-year-old Hannah Arbour and 12-year-old Gabby Ohel created Kidz Uplifting Kidz, a non-profit on a mission to create a different life for foster youth.

David Tatlock, the Kidz Uplifting Kidz vice president, said most times children in foster care lack the opportunity to buy a year book, take music lessons or go to prom. This organization hopes to raise money for those activities.

"Our foundation wants to help raise money for the cost of normalcy," Tatlock said.

Clark County family services said there are 5,000 foster kids in Nevada and 3,500 foster kids in the valley.
