We are asking you for $10.
This is the Youth Economic Group (YEG)
This is their vehicle, a 2003 Suburban. It has close to 200,000 miles on it!
The members YEG live in isolated areas in the Catskills - If they can't get a new van - then they can't get to their Program.
They need a new van.
We're asking you to give us $10, and then we ask you to find 9 other people who can give us $10.
The members of the Youth Economic Group are pretty impressive.
They created their own Cooperative Business: Bags for Justice
They have created jobs for themselves and other community youth
They are designing fair-trade shirts and bags that remind us of the good in all of us
They are the only youth Union affiliate in the country, that we know
They are the only rural youth Cooperative in the country, that we know
Over 95% of the graduates of the program have gone to college
As we said, they are pretty impressive!
But now they have no way to get to their program...
unless you donate $10, and help us spread the word!
The Members of YEG are so committed that each of them has given $10 - and they have asked each of their friends to donate $10 also.
If we can get three thousand people each giving $10 - then YEG gets a new van!
The Youth Economic Group, is a one of the kind program that provides the opportunity to promote social justice messages and master business and leadership skills with a Cooperative silkscreen company. See FB: facebook.com/BasementBags
