PARTNERS FOR CHANGE

The Be The Change Foundation, on behalf of Youngevity, has committed to donating a minimum of $30,000 to be distributed equally among our three 5K charity partners: Make-A-Wish® San Diego, Caterina’s Club, and the Gary Sinise Foundation.

With your help, we’ll make wishes come true, provide wholesome meals to children in need, and support our nation’s veterans and first responders.

100% of all net proceeds will be given to the following charities:

Make-A-Wish® San Diego
Make-A-Wish® San Diego grants wishes to eligible children in San Diego and Imperial Counties. Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. This is why wishes matter. This is why we grant wishes. Learn more

Caterina’s Club
Caterina’s Club’s mission is to provide warm meals, affordable housing assistance, and job training to homeless and low-income families throughout Southern California. It’s supported by a mission to create consistency in these children’s lives through something as simple, yet meaningful, as a nightly dinner. What began as a vision to prevent children living in motels from going to bed hungry grew into 3,580 children receiving a meal every night at 68 sites throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties. 170 families have been placed in permanent housing in safe neighborhoods through our Welcome Home program and 132 teens have been trained through the Hospitality Academy at four Anaheim high schools. Our vision is to provide every child the resources, love, and encouragement they need to be healthy, safe, and educated. Learn more

Gary Sinise Foundation
The Gary Sinise Foundation serves our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. They do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities. Through its R.I.S.E. program (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment), specially adapted smart homes are being constructed for severely wounded veterans and first responders nationwide. Each one-of-a-kind home is customized to ease the everyday burdens of a wounded hero, their family, and caregivers. Other programs include Relief & Resiliency Outreach, Invincible Spirit Festivals, Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band, Arts & Entertainment Outreach, Serving Heroes, First Responders Outreach, and Soaring Valor. Its latest program, Snowball Express, serves the children of our fallen military heroes, surviving spouses, and Gold Star families. Learn more
