Big Bird wants to help children everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. And so he started the Yellow Feather Fund.

The Sesame Street Yellow Feather Fund brings laughter and learning to children in need. We are a non-profit organization on a mission to help children everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. Using the power of media and our beloved characters we reach little learners at the earliest time in their development, when we can set them on a positive path for life.

Autism: We See Amazing

Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children provides tools for families of children with autism to help with everyday challenges. It also aims to reduce the stigma and misperceptions that surround autism, to help everyone see commonalities instead of differences - because every child is unique, and every child is amazing.

Sesame Street for Military Families

As many as 700,000 children under the age of five have a parent in the military. Military families show their strength as they experience deployments, homecomings, relocations, injuries, and sometimes grief. Through our Sesame Street for Military Families resources, we build on their resilience in times of separation and change.

WASH UP! is an initiative that talks to children and their communities about clean water, hand washing, and proper latrine use. Leading the conversation are Elmo and Raya, our first ever global health ambassador. Our WASH UP! materials are an antidote to life-threatening, hygiene-related diseases, like pneumonia and diarrhea - and are currently reaching communities in Nigeria, Bangladesh, India, and Zambia.
