YRNO Wins Starbucks Upstanders Grant

YRNO is happy to announce that we won $25,000 from the Starbucks Foundation Upstanders Challenge, which awards more than half of a million dollars in grants to charities that reflected the values of “Upstanders.” A special thanks goes to Kate Marsh from Ben Franklin High School, who created our winning video entry. Check out her work, here.

Thousands of organizations entered, and social media buzz from supporters like you allowed YRNO to reach the final round of 40 videos. In the end, 25 winners were chosen by the Starbucks Foundation to receive $25,000 grants .
