Kristi is a strong advocate for Arizona children, with her weekly Kristi's Kids reports. A mother of two boys, she feels it's her duty to look out for all children in Southern Arizona. If you have a story you'd like her to pursue, send an email to To prevent spam, this email address is an image.
Kristi's Kids is a passion of Kristi Tedesco, it is her platform for child advocacy in her hometown of Tucson.
When she was growing up and attending Cragin Elementary School, her family was struggling financially, as both parents were still in school. Getting a pair of shoes that fit properly (or didn't have holes in them) was a serious challenge.
She was the middle child and wore her older sister's hand-me-downs. Sometimes, she even wore her Cousin Scott's clothes (yes! He's a boy). Those years and feelings never escape her... and so... now as an adult, she advocate for kids. Her goal is to help as many children as possible, live the best lives they can.
Among the Kristi's Kids projects and campaigns you will find Kristi out and about involved in the following:
Every holiday season (typically November and December) she can be found gathering food, clothing and toys for local kids in need. She does this in a partnership with local firefighters. It is called, "KRISTI'S KIDS SEASON 4 HOPE." Every swim season (April-Labor Day) she raises awareness about water safety, since her "KRISTI'S KIDS, NEWS 4 TUCSON LIFESAVER" campaign began in 2010; she and her supporters have seen a marked drop in child drowning and near-drowning. She will tell you that they have NOT eliminated the incidents but there's been a reduction, according to the Safe Kids Pima County program. In addition to doing a water safety awareness story every week, she has teamed up with YMCA of Southern AZ to give away HUNDREDS of free swim lessons. This current summer they gave 600-local children FREE swim lessons. Each child received a full SERIES of lessons, for free! She has also teamed up with a local pool fence company (Protect a Child Pool Fence Company) that gives away one FREE pool fence every month, to a family in need. To get the children actively involved in the message, her and her team holds a coloring contest when the top three winners of the contest win a family 4pak to LEGOLAND, every month. As the new school years get underway, she teams up with Tucson Values Teachers and Walgreens to gather school supplies for public, private and charter school teachers throughout Southern AZ. The latest survey found, the average teacher spends $1,000 or more of their own money on school supplies for students. She is currently waiting for this year's tally, but in 2013 they gathered $192,000 worth of school supplies. This campaign is called the "KRISTI'S KIDS' TUCSON SUPPLIES TEACHERS SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE." In addition to these major campaigns, she emcees numerous events to raise money and attention for local child causes. She also emcees a fundraiser for the Education Enrichment Foundation. Among the projects for that non-profit? She teams up with Payless Shoes to give kids, who desperately need a new pair of shoes they can wear to school and not be ashamed of how they are dressed the help they need. She does this knowing that she could have benefited from a program just like that had it existed when she was a kid.
