The Philanthropic Hub Returns for the Tenth Year featuring REFORM Alliance, Share Food Program, Dare 2 Hope, and more
The highly anticipated JAY-Z curated two-day festival (Sept 3-4), Made in America, announced the 21 philanthropic organizations participating in their annual social good hub, Cause Village Powered by SHEIN, today.
The music festival has held advocacy at its core since 2012, averaging 20,000 social actions taken each year. Organizations for the 2022 Cause Village focus on an array of causes, ranging from animal welfare, arts & culture, criminal & social justice reform, education, youth development, health & wellness, and voter rights, and more.
“Cause Village has continued to make an impact on not only the Made in America festival and attendees, but in the greater Philadelphia community,” said Dania Diaz, Managing Director, Team Roc. “We are really looking forward to giving these Cause Village organizations another opportunity to be involved in this effort to engage and bring awareness to the issues that affect our everyday lives.”
This year marks Made in America‘s 10th year of performances, boasting a powerful and diverse lineup with headliners Bad Bunny and Tyler, The Creator. Since its inception, the festival has brought the biggest names in music and up-and-coming superstars to the City of Brotherly Love, while remaining rooted in the city’s culture. The festival has generated over $150 million in economic impact for the city of Philadelphia since its inception in 2012.
“Share Food Program is excited to be with Made in America this year as we’ll be able to share our goals with the rest of the Philadelphia community,” said George Matysik, Executive Director of Share Food Program. “We’re thrilled to be able to be involved in such an engaging environment as we’ll be able to form meaningful connections with other passionate people in the community.”
“We are looking forward to being present at the festival this year to raise awareness on breaking the stigmas surrounding mental health while promoting a healthy lifestyle,” said Sarah-Ashley Andrews, MS, Founder of Dare 2 Hope. “Music is a helpful tool in managing mental health and a positive way to build a solid foundation through hobbies and the connections we make along the way.”
