MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - For more than a decade Kid One Transportation has had but one mission, to get children and expectant mothers from their homes to medical appointments.

This week the non-profit organization received something back for its efforts. The Alabama Association of REALTORS® donated nearly $46,000 to the organization at its 2009 Leadership Conference.

This isn't the first time AAR has helped Kid One. In 2005 REALTORS® for Children partnered with Kid One and began generating donations through the sale of REALTOR® car tags.

"Every year the AAR President creates a theme" said Vanita Sansom, 2008 Chair of REALTORS® for Children. "This year President Joe Rhodes is promoting ‘Make A Difference.' Kid One is truly making a difference in the lives of children across the State and we feel fortunate to be a part of this mission."

In the three years since the groups came together more than $180,000 have been generated to help the children and mothers-to-be get to their doctor appointments.
