EVENT DETAILS

IMPACT

Providing hope and support for children in need

About the cause: Children are moved from foster home to foster home, often separated from their siblings, and not encouraged to develop professional skills. In fact, only 50% of youth in U.S. foster care graduate from high school and only 3% earn a bachelor’s degree. WeHero, alongside our corporate and non-profit partners, are aggressively trying to resolve this issue.

About the event: Learn about the challenges faced by children in the foster care system worldwide and the incredible work that various nonprofits do to support them. After an educational keynote about the cause, we will put together a welcome home pack, decorate a pillowcase, and pack a bag full of necessities for the children.

CARE FOR OUR PLANET

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
