initiatives we are working on at the moment.
All the members at Champions of Change would like to say huge thank you for the generosity of everyone who took part in the Purple Box Campaign! We would also like to mention the Rising Youth Community Grant Service which is a Canadian service that provides youth with the opportunity to launch their own community based projects. The Rising Youth Grant Service provides funding at three different levels: $250, $750, and $1,500, allowing inspired individuals to see their ideas come to life! The funding provided by this organization was a huge help towards the Purple Box Care Package initiative.
