Do you remember?

 

Benjamin (Creative Director) and Adam Warmington (Director) collaborated on this piece for First Place for Youth, an organization aimed at helping foster youth transition to adulthood. It was made possible by a generous grant from Super Bowl 50.

18 is a defining moment in everyone’s life, but for foster youth who are too young to be on their own—it’s monumental. With the right guidance and support, they can defy the odds stacked against them. And ultimately, reverse the cycle of poverty and write a new, brighter economic future.

Check out First Place for Youth's new campaign to learn how some of your favorite celebrities got through this bumpy transition to adulthood, and why they're committed to helping foster youth do the same. Visit http://firstplaceforyouth.org to learn more and donate.
