BBYO and DoSomething.org partner for food drive campaign
BBYO, the world’s leading pluralistic Jewish youth movement and DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit for young people and social change, announce the launch of “Can-Tribute,” a campaign that will rally Jewish youth across the country to fight poverty in their local community through a food collection drive.
The campaign kicked off on Sept. 23 and continues through Nov. 6.
At the conclusion of the campaign, the leaders of the top three biggest drives will win a pre-screening of the “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” for themselves and 20 friends.
“BBYO has a long tradition of teens coming together to stand up for the causes they believe in and to take action to create change in their communities and our world,” said Natalie Spring, director of Campaigns and Movement Initiatives at BBYO. “Working with DoSomething.org on this campaign, we’re able to connect more teens to the value of repairing the world.”
“DoSomething.org is all about making social change accessible to young people and working around events in their lives like holidays and movie premieres to make social change a part of a lifestyle” said Naomi Hirabayashi, chief marketing officer at DoSomething.org.
