TEENAGE YOUTH LAUNCHES REWARDS PROGRAM TO BUILD SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES IN CANADA

Toronto, ON (February 5, 2014) - For many students and youth, launching a nation wide program is a dream for the future. For one bright and talented young woman, it’s a reality that she hopes will transform youth community engagement into a result driven, rewarding endeavour.

My Clean City is a national leadership program created by motivational speaker Kelly Lovell. Made for YOUth by YOUth, My Clean City caters to the 21st century student volunteer; providing a platform that engages goal-oriented mindsets and adds personal motivation to volunteer experiences.

Taking a result driven approach to volunteering, My Clean City quantifies youth impact by recording volunteer results and crediting youth and organizations that assist in achieving environmental goals. Program participants earn CleanCreds, a currency that is earned by volunteerism and community impact. CleanCreds can later be redeemed for gift cards with leading brand partners, exclusive prize packs, and intrinsic rewards such as mentorship and leadership opportunities.

“Youth are not the leaders of tomorrow, we are the leaders of today,” says Kelly A. Lovell, Founder, My Clean City. “My Clean City works to motivate youth to do more and do better using a simple four step approach: Engage, Impact, Earn and Redeem. This not only encourages mass participation among students, it trains students to be results driven, a necessary skill for survival in the workplace as an adult”.

Uniting environmentally committed organizations working for the same cause, My Clean City is a collaborative project with a variety of national brand and charitable partners. H&M, a national brand partner of this project and one dedicated to conscious actions that build a more sustainable fashion future, will take their part by encouraging garment collecting in stores and rewarding gift cards among their other prizes to youth who take action to green their cities with the program.

Other supporters of My Clean City include: TakingItGlobal, Environmental Defence, YMCA of Greater Toronto, GreenLearning.ca, Ecycle Solutions, and TerraCycle.

Through such collaborative efforts My Clean City will bridge the gap between youth, local resources and their communities to improve Canada’s environment.

Wow... Boy have I grown. To anybody reading this, whether you a be a past friend or current user, I really hope you're well. I've changed a lot since I've been here. Since I've left. I want you guys, my old friends (should you be reading this), to know a few things. No, I probably won't be back. Not for a very very long time. Yes, I miss you all. So very much. As said, I truely hope you're all still well and happy. And I want you to know I'm happy too. After I left this site, I really found myself, as cheesy as it may sound. But I'm happier now. Not completely happy, but I'm happier. And now, something that everyone could hear. Something that everyone should hear. I hope you all have a great life, for life is a gift we are given so very little of. Use it as you will, but be wise with it. Let nobody else deprive you because of the color of your skin, the thoughts on your mind, or the love in your heart. You're all so very beautiful and smart, in you're own grand way. You deserve this gift you've been given. Each and everyone of you. If you ever think that no one seems to care, always remember that even if you don't know me and I don't know you, I care. I care so very very much. I'll see you another time KW. My stay has been the most grand. Thank you all so much.
