Just Care More and The Inflatable Festival & Run Team Up With California Coalition for Youth!

Makes donation of $20,000 worth of tickets to support at risk youth across California

Just Care More, in partnership with The Inflatable Festival & Run donated $20,000 of tickets to the California Coalition for Youth to assist and empower the lives of children all across California.  The Inflatable Festival & Run will take place at the Pomona Fairplex outside Los Angeles on October 6th and at the Solano County Fairgrounds in the Bay Area on October 20th.  The event is the largest inflatable festival ever to tour and thanks to this partnership over 500 underserved youth across the state will have the opportunity to enjoy the festivities!

The Inflatable Festival and Run, features over 28,000 pounds of inflatables, including bounce houses, zorb balls, and inflatable jousting, in addition to a one-mile long course chock-full of inflatable obstacles that kids and adults alike can climb, bounce, and maneuver through.

The event is produced by CEO Jamie Leibert, whom grew up in group homes throughout Southern California. Giving at-risk youth the chance to experience an event like The Inflatable Run is what Leibert and Just Care More are all about.  “Giving these children an opportunity they may never have had is what we are passionate about and what drives us to create events like this.  Partnering with The California Coalition for Youth is an incredible and exciting opportunity for us to extend our reach and help as many children as we possibly can.”

California Coalition for Youth Executive Director, Jevon Wilkes says, “The work Just Care More is doing to give back to the local community is noble.  Their donation will help create an important bond between youth throughout the state of California and have a positive influence in their lives.  We are ecstatic to be the beneficiary or their generous commitment to our community and are doing our part to ensure this partnership has a lasting impact on the people we are fortunate enough to serve across the state.” 

California Coalition for Youth provides statewide policy leadership around issues concerning disconnected runaway and homeless youth.  They share the goal with Just Care More to provide resources for youth in need, including operating the California Youth Crisis Line, a statewide, toll-free, 24-hour, confidential Hotline available to teens and young adults ages 12-24 and any adults supporting youth.  If someone you know is in crisis, they can call 1-800-843-5200.

Working together will bridge the gap and create a platform that gives these children experience’s they would not have received without each organizations dedication and generosity.  This partnership will give hundreds of children a positive outlet to focus their energy.

In addition to the tremendous donation, Just Care More has set up a nomination system for patrons to nominate members of their community who may be in need and deserving of a fun day out.  Nominations can be made here:  https://www.justcaremore.com/nominate/.
