I participated in an Influencer Activation for State Farm Neighborhood Assist. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
As a parent, I am always concerned with creating and contributing to a world that will be a beautiful place for my children to grow up in. Charity has always been a strong theme in my life, and I always try and teach my children how important it is to give back to those less fortunate. In my years of giving back, I’ve done charity events with Tony Hawk’s foundation, worked with local churches, and donated many many hours of my time to help those who need it. I don’t have a ton of awesome skills, but what I can do, I love to use to give back with.
Recently I was introduced to the State Farm Neighborhood Assist Program – sometimes life can get busy and I am not always able to donate my time, but I love that I can use my blog as a platform to raise awareness for amazing causes and programs!
What is State Farm Neighborhood Assist?
Neighborhood Assist empowers people to identify problems in their community, connects them with local nonprofits that can help solve the problem and provides an opportunity for communities to receive funding to make a positive impact in their neighborhood.
What is the Youth Advisory Board?
The Youth Advisory Board is comprised of 30 students, ages 17-20, from across the United States who serve a two-year term. Their directive is to implement a $5 million-a-year service-learning initiative to address issues important to youth and communities. The Board is completely autonomous and youth-driven, and funds projects focused on issues selected by the board that impact youth. It consists of a diverse group of full-time students at high schools and universities.
