Ramblin’ Rose events are not only about “empowering” the participants, but they also provide great benefit to several very important non-profit organizations.
More About the We Build People Annual Campaign:
The YMCA We Build People Campaign is a community-wide effort to raise funds for children, teens, families and adults who need the Y. 100% of the money raised goes to fund programming in our YMCA community.
Your support helps youth, family, and teens!
All it takes is one person to make a difference by making a gift, telling a friend about the importance of We Build People, volunteering at an after-school program, or mentoring a child to keep him or her on the right path. You can make a difference in your community today.

Beautiful Together Supports Children Without Families.
Beautiful Together supports children without families. This non-profit organization shines a light on children who wait to be part of a family while living in foster care, group homes, or orphanages through a combination of professional photography, video profiles, and social outreach, to better connect them with waiting families.
Beautiful Together also works to improve the quality of life for these children – and all those involved in foster care, domestic and international adoption today – through specific, tangible, and measurable projects, with the long-term goal of effecting positive change both in the perception of, and the systemic issues in, domestic and international adoption.
You can engage with Beautiful Together TODAY and help support children without families at www.BeautifulTogther.org
