A Note from Ving’s Founders

We started The VING Project to empower teens to make a difference in the lives of those around them. By providing them with small grants to give to people in need, we hope to provide an opportunity for them to experience the joys of giving – that feeling you get when you take the time to care about someone else who may be vulnerable.

We hope we are giving teens more than just a $1,000 check to donate to someone in need. Our desire is to bestow young people with the confidence to lead with generosity and compassion. We recognize that more important than monetary donations, is the consideration of others and the community around you.

Our family is constantly inspired by the thoughtfulness and kindness we see from the VING community. With teenagers of our own, we see the power and influence that young people hold today.

We hope the VING Project is a vehicle that allows teens to continue their journey of making the world a kinder, better place. Thank you for your support and don’t forget to spread the word! The more people VING, the bigger the difference the next generation can make.
