The Make4Good Challenge is all about using creativity, skill and imagination to ensure that kids at Boys Town can learn a trade.

JoshTemple-Screenshot.jpgWith the help of TV personality Josh Temple, Boys Town is challenging a group of talented professionals in the trades to make ANYTHING they can imagine! The item could be a piece of furniture, an article of clothing or a work of art – any object that’s inspired by their creativity and expertise.

The theme for this year’s Make4Good Challenge, which runs from July 31 to September 30, is Second Chances to Shine. In October, Boys Town will conduct an online auction for each of the items, with all proceeds directly supporting the trade programs offered to the boys and girls in Boys Town’s care.

The goal of the Make4Good Challenge is not just to raise money. It’s also about raising awareness! That’s why we’ve asked our group of professionals – influencers in their trade areas – to also share their “making journey” with their audiences and to use Boys Town as a source of inspiration as they step out of their comfort zone and create something amazing.

We hope all of Boys Town’s friends will follow and support these professionals as they post about their “making journey” on their social media channels. The people listed below have accepted the challenge, and we ask that you like, follow or subscribe to their pages in order to track their progress on their projects. Boys Town also will be sharing updates below.

When you visit these pages, be sure to comment with a “Thank you” in appreciation of the time and skills these individuals are donating to help the children of Boys Town.
