GTMD 14 + #LegacyofChange Video Contest Winners!
Wow, this year’s Give to the Max Day was a whirlwind! We were overwhelmed by the support we received from our partners and community members: we reached our goal of $7,000 and raised enough money to fund a Change Fellow in 2014! We will be raising money through the rest of the year for the Change Fellows program. The Change Fellowship is designed to support youth in what they are already doing or planning, so that they are better able to bring to fruition the critical initiatives they direct. With your help, we can empower entrepreneurial youth to carry out their visions for their communities. To learn about the 2013 Change Fellows big ideas, watch their video. And, to invest in the Change Fellows you can still donate here.
Outside of raising money, we were thrilled to partner with GiveMN on our #LegacyofChange video contest. On November 14th we went to the Mall of America to present contest winners with their grant awards for creating videos that showcased their work done in partnership with youth. It was inspiring to see the youth and adults behind these inspiring videos in person and to hear some of their stories. We have listed the organizations that won below, along with links to their winning videos so you can hear their stories as well!
