BECAUSE YOU DESERVE IT!
FreeFest has always been about giving back. For the past two years, we’ve wanted to lighten things up in the face of a rough economy while drawing more attention to youth homelessness. And thanks to you we raised nearly $300,000, generated more than 55,000 hours of volunteer time and over 10,000 outreach kits. This year we want to do more.
WE’LL TAKE CARE OF THE TICKETS.
YOU TAKE CARE OF THE KARMA.
Since we’re picking up the cost of the tickets, we’re asking each person who attends the Festival to donate $10 to The RE*Generation, Virgin Mobile’s initiative to address youth homelessness. Your donations will go towards securing outreach services and shelter services for these youth.
OUR CAUSE THE RE*GENERATION…
A GENERATION HELPING ITS OWN
Over two million youth (between the ages of 12 and 24) will experience at least one episode of homelessness each year and over 100,000 youth sleep on the street for 6 months or more in America. The vast majority of homeless, street-dependent youth will experience amplified risk of exposure to physical assault, rape, sexual exploitation, recruitment into gangs, and deepening mental health illnesses. Homeless kids have different needs than homeless adults – they haven’t even had a chance to live their lives yet.
The RE*Generation is our effort to empower a generation to help its own. We’re bringing together organizations that care about homeless youth and connecting them with young people who want to help. You can help my donating or volunteering. Donate at: http://bit.ly/nfv4ph. Volunteer at: http://bit.ly/dmLdr4
