CFC40 partnered with Comfort Cases for an activation that centered the city's youth in foster care.

Together with the City of Boston's Office of Returning Citizens and several other community partners, we centered returning citizens and their families for a special day of inclusion.

We wanted to ensure our returning citizens that the community stands ready to encourage and to support their journey forward. #CheckOnBoston
CFC40 partnered with Love Yourself Always Inc. for Heart 2 Heart, a three-part activation in Columbia, SC to center and uplift adolescent black girls who are without consistent positive male figures in their lives. The day began with a self-defense class facilitated by US Olympic Judo Master Rhadi Ferguson and was followed by a special Heart 2 Heart brunch where the girls engaged in candid conversation with their male role models. The activation culminated with the male role models teaching the girls how to ride bicycles. #CheckOnColumbia
