More than 1.3 million young people experiencing homelessness in the United States regularly go without basic necessities such as food and hygiene products. StandUp For Kids provides homeless youth, ages 21 and younger, with a variety of programs and services that aim to prevent homelessness and improve life on the streets for those who are already experiencing it.
Lacking essential food and hygiene items can make it more difficult for young people to achieve the successes that can help them emerge from homelessness, such as passing the GED or interviewing for a job. StandUp For Kids provides basic survival packs filled with two weeks' worth of easily transportable food and hygiene products. Each survival pack is designed to improve everyday life with small food items—such as juice, a granola bar, raisins, and canned spaghetti—and basic hygiene products—including deodorant, shampoo, sunscreen, a toothbrush, socks, underwear, and washcloths.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help StandUp For Kids provide basic food and hygiene supplies to homeless young people. If G-Team members raise $500, 25 young people will each get two survival packs. Each additional $10 raised will purchase another survival kit.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
