The Story

EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2016

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jan 10, 2016

This holiday season, take the plunge for family!  If you can't plunge yourself, consider supporting one of our teams. Family is a big part of the holiday season. By supporting the penguin plunge, you can help give the gift of family to young people in foster care.

 

YGB has one focus -- to connect older foster youth in foster care to the  lifetime families they need and deserve.  Every 23 minutes, another youth ages out of foster care completely alone in the world. We all need families to survive and thrive. Connecting youth to family significantly reduces the high risk they face in their adult years of poverty, homelessness, criminal justice system involvement, poor health, and more. Get a sense of the families we serve by checking out our videos below, or learn more about our mission on our website:

 

  1. Naimah and Ashley's story
  2. The Royal family story, featured on Humans of New York
  3. A Story of Adoption, featuring The Toles Family, a video with over 180,000 views to date!

 

At 1:10 pm on New Year’s Day (January 1, 2016), supporters and members of the YGB family will jump in the freezing sea at Coney Island, Brooklyn NY (near Luna Park and the boardwalk). Take a moment to watch our video from the event last year.


We hope you will join us as we Plunge for FUNds! Your support goes a long way in helping to connect more young people to forever families.  And what's more?  This year's Penguin Plunge is a part of our 20th anniversary campaign so help us raise 20k for 20 years.
