Thank you for taking the Youth Uplift Challenge 2017

Thank you for taking the Youth Uplift Challenge!

This year:
  • 115,000 students took the Youth Uplift Challenge;
  • Students from 28 countries participated;
  • Over 250,000 hands were created with uplifting notes.
For every hand you made and sent in, the Bezos Family Foundation donated $1.90—up to $500,000—to Save the Children’s programs empowering youth in Nicaragua and Indonesia to rise into a life they dream for themselves. Thanks to your hard work:
  • Over 2,000 young people in Nicaragua and Indonesia will receive job training;
  • Nearly 20 new supportive youth community groups were formed in Nicaragua;
  • and 40 teachers were trained to provide financial literacy education to thousands of youth in Indonesia.
