Winter in New York can be really brutal, especially with that recent arctic blast that swept across the East Coast and left everyone freezing beneath layers of padded jackets and scarves. On top of that, snowstorm Hercules coated the city streets in heaps of snow, which quickly transformed into dirty brown slush and pools of freezing water. Yuck!

On Thursday, September 19, 2013 the Global Youth Connect is hosting a wine tasting to celebrate its recent success implementing human rights programs in Bosnia and Rwanda this summer—so just for this, we can "mix" children and alcohol.
As if wine tastings weren’t full-bodied enough, the proceeds to GYC give the event an even sweeter finish. GYC is an organization that advances global social justice by encouraging young adults to become human rights activists. To empower these young adults, the charity offers cross cultural human rights workshops as well as opportunities to engage in volunteer service. GYC aligns with various grassroots, NGOs, policy makers, and other stakeholders to sustain international human rights activism.
We all know that big companies sometimes like to give their money to charity. But no matter how noble a cause may be, there is really no way to see exactly how or where they allocate these charity dollars. But with State Bags, giving back to the community has become much more than just a promise, it's a celebration.
State Bags is a New York based benefit corporation who specialize in building practical and stylish bags for people interested in making a discernable change in their community. For every bag purchased, an identical bag is given to an impoverished child who do not have simple luxuries like owning legitimate school backpacks. Instead of just handing out their proceeds behind the veil of a UPS carrier, State Bags celebrate every individually donated bag with a rally held by State Bags representatives called PackMen (no relation to the 8-bit game character).According to Scot Tatelman, who started State Bags with his wife Jacqueline, the idea for their project originated five years ago during a summer camp program he started to help impoverished kids. "I moved to New York and wanted to do something for kids growing up in neighborhoods that were pretty tough, maybe the toughest. Kids were showing up to and from camp with their stuff in trash bags," he says, "so we wanted to do something more than just hand out material things." Instead, Scot and Jacq introduced their GiveBackPack program which also provides children with "a message, role models, and a long term impact." PackMen are the foot soldiers of State Bags. By showing up in person to every State Bags Bag Drop around the country, PackMen are youth developement specialists from under-priviledged nieghborhoods who form intimate relationships with the kids they deliver their products to. Scot not only describes them as motivational role models who visit kids and "rock their world", but they are also the "face of the franchise" who are "performers at heart". Along with being "cheerleaders and rappers, all kind of in one." Scot also says, "they show kids how they rose from neighborhoods, exactly like the one's that they're serving...how they dealt with shootings, violence of all kinds, and drugs." To sum up their relationship to them, Scot says that, "They are basically family members to us."
