This month we will once again partner with the Students Rebuild organization!  This year we will be making "hands" in support of the Youth Uplift Challenge. For every hand that we make and send in, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1.90—up to $500,000—to Save the Children’s programs empowering youth in Nicaragua and Indonesia to rise into a life they dream for themselves.
