Eimanne during the reception after her event to raise money for homeless youth.

Teen Hosts Festival for Homeless Youth

Eimanne El Zein, a student at Shorecrest high school, recognized a need in her community, and organized a fundraiser for kids struggling to get off the streets.

Last year alone, Teen Feed served over 13,000 meals to youth in the Seattle area. However; they are much more than just a meal service. They provide many services to help youth meet their future off the streets.

The fundraiser was a night of inspiring local, youth-produced films. The films all had a similar theme about community involvement, and hearing each other's needs and voices.

Films were shown at the Central Cinema on Saturday, April 2. She is still fundraising for Teen Feed by selling event t-shirts and collecting donations to reach her fundraising goal.

In a time where kids are beating each other up for fun or sport it is nice to see a story of hope and helping those in need. She is an example of what todays youth should be doing. Her parents should be and I bet are proud of their daughter.
