Virgin Unite 24901 & Geo Travel Club Announce A Foundation For Homelessness Youth In The US
We are incredibly lucky that all of our overheads are covered by Richard Branson and the Virgin Group, meaning that all donations received, go direct to the frontline where they are needed most.
In some unique settings, like Richard’s own Necker Island, Virgin Unite brings together entrepreneurs, philanthropists and leaders from every walk of life. Together, we talk about the world’s most pressing issues and opportunities and bring together the right people to then act to drive change. Growing a community of brilliant minds, innovative thought leaders and inspiring people is what we call Virgin Unite 24902 (you got it – the number of miles around the world).
The Virgin family is working with young people all over the world to create opportunities for the next generation. We’ve been incredibly inspired by their enthusiasm and commitment to making the world a better place – and know you will be too! We also think it is unacceptable that young people are having to sleep on the streets – so we’re working with some great partners to tackle youth homelessness in all corners of the world. Youth homelessness is a huge global problem. The numbers are staggering: at this moment something like 32,000 young Australians 65,000 young Canadians and over two million young people in the US don’t have a place to call home...
Right now, there are over two million young people who face bouts of homelessness each year in the U.S. Most have been forced from their homes because of circumstances beyond their control. Some manage to make it through school but others are less fortunate, resorting to begging or prostitution just to survive.
Geo Travel Club, Virgin Mobile, with the help of Virgin Unite, wants to change that. The RE*Generation is our effort to empower a generation to help its own. We're bringing together organizations that care about homeless youth and connecting them with people who want to help.
And we're making it easy for people to take an active role and get involved - through donating, volunteering, and even text messaging and downloading. With The RE*Generation, one person really can make a difference.
Donate For A Great Cause That Changes Youth Lives!
