Check out these amazing kids!!!

This group of teenagers are helping their community by volunteering to help fight hunger and homelessness!! They aren't your typical teens, of course they play sports, are in their high school band...and like to play video games; but they also enjoy devoting their time to helping others. In a mere 6 months, these 8 teens have volunteered over 400 hours of community service. It is astounding that these young men can have such an impact on their community. I have personally volunteered alongside these boys, and I can honestly say I have never met such a wonderful group of teenagers. Their hearts are so full of compassion, it completely blows me away. They want to continue their efforts, but they need your help and support. They have teamed up with Groupon to provide a secure and convenient way for you to support them, and rest assured 100% of your donation goes to this organization! Please consider making this a part of your New Year's Resolution. You won't be just helping a group of teens, but also giving a hand to fight hunger and homelessness. For every 10$ you donate, this group of teens is committed to volunteering 8 hours of service in your name!


Here are just a few projects they have recently worked on:

-Homeless Survival Kits: Created and distributed 53 Homeless Survival Kits through the Austin area.

-Capital Area Food Bank: Helped sort over 3,270 pounds of food to be distributed to those less fortunate

-Caritas Community Kitchen: Cooked and served for over 330 homeless individuals

-Austin Good Cookies: Raised almost $1000 by selling cookies for pediatric cancer research


Friends I ask, please help support these boys by blogging about them too! I want them to continue their amazing work and be role models for others!!
