Why do you think people will recognize or remember your idea after it comes to life? How might it inspire others to do something similar in their community? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

EVERYONE WANTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR COMMUNITY. THEY WANT TO GIVE BACK. THEY WANT TO DO SOMETHING UPLIFTING. WHY NOT START WITH THE YOUTH WHO ARE SO AT RISK AND SOMETIMES GET LOST IN THEIR COMPLICATED LIVES IN THIS WORLD. ITS A DAY TO DAY STRUGGLE FOR MOST OF THEM AND WE WANT TO HELP AND ENCOURAGE THESE CHILDREN IN A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT AND OFFER THEM BOUNTIFUL RESOURCES TO LIVE A LIFE MAYBE THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD NEVER LIVE.
