The Generosity of Youth

Once again we at Billions Rising Foundation are moved by how thoughtful and kind young people can be. We have been following The Empowerment Plan for a couple of years now. They are the group that employs homeless women to sew warm coats that turn into sleeping bags for Detroit’s homeless population.

Now, young Caleb White has come along and added his great compassion.

For the past 6 years I’ve handed out boxes filled with food, hats, gloves, and personal care items to the homeless in Detroit before Christmas. Last year I gave out 150 boxes and 100 winter coats. This summer I hosted a back-to-school party where more than 800 children received backpacks filled with supplies, free haircuts, and food.

This year I am challenging youth across America to give up one birthday or Christmas present and donate the money to help the homeless. We are the future leaders of this country – let’s start making history now!

“We should always give more than we receive and not expect anything in return.” -Caleb White, 12
