'7 Days Across America' Campaign Honors Teens Making a Difference in Their Communities
Date:9/1/2009

SEARCY, Ark., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Fourteen cities. Seven days. One movement. The Encouragement Foundation will celebrate this year's National Day of Encouragement with the first ever "7 Days Across America" campaign showcasing the encouraging actions of today's youth. The tour will launch September 5 in San Francisco and conclude with the selection of the winner of a $5,000 college scholarship and commemoration of the third annual National Day of Encouragement in New York City on September 12.

"'7 Days Across America' was created to challenge the negative stereotype of teenagers today," said Andrew Baker, executive director of the Encouragement Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that raises awareness about the benefits of encouraging others. "The campaign will honor teenagers who are positive influences. We hope their stories of generosity, sacrifice, and compassion will motivate others to become lights of encouragement by getting involved in their own schools and communities."

The movement will visit 14 U.S. cities in seven days and spotlight stories of young people who are striving to make a difference in the world. Thus far, among the youth involved are Ashlee Smith (10) of Reno, NV, who founded Ashlee's Toy Closet which collects toys, books and clothes and donates them to children who have lost their homes by fire, natural disaster or economic crisis; Fernandez-Han (15), of Houston, TX, who developed the VERSATILE system that treats waste, fights greenhouse gases and produces food, fuel and oxygen; and Vinay Trevedi (18), of Philadelphia, who honored his grandfather by founding Senior Link, an organization through which young people help residents of senior homes feel more connected to society by teaching them the skills necessary to use computers and the Internet.

The tour includes stops in San Francisco, CA (September 5); Reno, NV (September 5);
