It shocked us to learn that every 3 seconds someone in the world dies from hunger. 1.2 billion people around the world live on $1 a day or less. Also, 90 million children do not have the opportunity to attend school.
It has been proven, time and time again, that one person can make a difference. From Mahatma Gandhi to Mother Teresa, there have been many people who have literally changed the world as we know it. Now, imagine the impact it would have if a whole generation of youth around the world banded together; we could make the world a better place! If youth were motivated to make a difference, the UN Millennium development goals (Poverty, hunger, universal education, gender equality, child health, maternal health, HIV/AIDS, environmental stability, and global partnership) would be solved! Youth would grow up as caring, compassionate leaders and everyone would be living in peace and harmony.
This is our goal. We want to inspire youth to make a difference. Do you want to know what the best part is? The fact that it feels incredible to do community service and that it is actually A LOT of fun! How? Through using their talents and interests to perform community service. After all, that’s exactly what we did. We both love to sing, so we wrote an inspirational song to motivate youth into action. The bottom line is, whatever youth do, they should make it easy, make it enjoyable, and make it matter!
Also, we’re definitely the right people for the job. As youth, we are the perfect people to motivate other youth to take action.
