Jackie Majerus

Jackie runs Youth Journalism International, an award-winning non-profit based in West Hartford that works with teens across the world (including Afghanistan, Egypt, Canada, South Korea, Italy and countless other countries) to create unbiased on-the-ground news.
When her non-profit began the reporters only covered news in one Central Connecticut town, yet now, almost 10 years later, writers are now report on a variety of topics, such as the Arab Uprising and teaching tolerance.
Jackie donated her $1000 to her non-profit she created, Youth Journalism International.

Amanda Buttery

Amanda has always strived to make a difference, beginning when she was a college student by tutoring at-risk youth and coaching a middle school soccer team made up of mostly lower-income students.
As a young teacher, she started a sports program for special needs students and was consistently their mentor. Before she got married, she spent a summer teaching and coaching underprivileged kids in Honduras and undeniably helping those global kids.
Amanda donated her $1000 to COPA (Community Partners Inc) in the Dominican Republic.

Iliah Grant

Iliah is presently in Laos with her 2 children where she is staying with a local family, teaching English. We were inspired by Iliah because she is globally minded, and truly believes that raising "little citizens of the world" is her calling.
When visiting a new country or city, it is her goal to learn how the locals live and to embrace the culture with her children whole-heartedly. She is not afraid to ask questions, share herself, and really empathizes with each person she meets. This rubs right off on to her girls, who love and accept others.
Iliah donated her $1000 to Timbali Crafts, which is a non-profit in Swaziland helping women artisans make crafts to sustain themselves and feed over 2500 kids.
