Do Something

http://www.dosomething.org

We love teens. They are creative, active, wired…and frustrated that our world is so messed up. Do Something harnesses that awesome energy and unleashes it on causes teens care about.. Almost every week, we launch a new national campaign. The call to action is always something that has a real impact and doesn’t require money, an adult, or a car.

Your City Sports

http://www.yourcitysports.com

The idea for Your City Sports was born in 2013 - while volunteering at an event for the homeless we learned that socks were the #1 need for people on the streets. Our vision is to create a brand of high quality athletic socks that are fun to wear. With every pair of socks sold, we donate a new pair of socks to a homeless charity in your community.
