GiveYoung.org Wants You to Party for a Purpose

In 2006 Rick and Nicole Van House created GiveYoung.org. The idea behind the foundation was to inspire the younger generations to get involved and give back. The couple noticed that younger people had a lot of passion and wanted to make a change, but they had no idea how to get involved. They realized it was simple, they just needed to get us to party for a purpose.

This weekend GiveYoung.org will be hosting Engage 2015 at Westin Book Cadillac hotel in Detroit. This event will feature three different charities teaching you what they do while trying to get you involved in a whole new way. Forgotten Harvest will be packing food in the middle of the room.  Humble Design will be constructing a child's room right in front of our eyes during the event. The Empowerment Plan will be showing us how they construct their one of a kind coats that transform into sleeping bags and Whole Foods Market will have a full produce market set up with all kinds of fruits and vegetables for patrons to learn about and sample.

The event will also feature a charity raffle of artwork created by Detroit's own Camera Jesus. For $20 you can get 5 tickets to win a large canvas print by the legendary photographer.
