Online Charity Platform Raises Funds Through Volunteers Doing Stunts
Do Whatever It Takes is a campaign to end youth homelessness, and it's looking for all sorts of crazy pledges to help raise money for the cause.
Do Whatever It Takes is a creative and fun way to take on a serious issue – youth homelessness. Over 2 million young people in the US and Canada experience homelessness each year. One out of 8 people are forced to leave their home. A variety of factors stand in their way: sexual abuse, discrimination from their families on the basis of sexual orientation, parental drug and alcohol abuse, abandonment, and others. 62% have dropped out of school. Of those without homes, they are 16 times more likely to contract HIV. Over 70% are unemployed, and they are 3 times more likely to suffer mental health problems.
