#BandingTogether With Together We Rise
Together We Rise is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised of motivated young adults and former foster youth. Their vision is to improve the lives of foster children in America, who often find themselves forgotten and neglected by the public. Rastaclat partnered with Together We Rise to provide foster youth with skateboards and duffle bags for their belongings to give them a sense of home. Together We Rise also provides service-learning activities to educate volunteers on issues surrounding the foster care system.
Together We Rise works with hundreds of foster agencies, social workers, CASA advocates, and other partners to bring their programs to foster youth across the nation. Their foundation has provided thousands of foster youth across the country with new bicycles, college supplies, and suitcases so that children do not have to travel from home to home with their belongings in a trash bag.
