On Saturday March 2, 2019 Touching Young Lives will be participating in the annual T. Rowe Price Foundation’s Grassroots DesignFest at MICA. The event brings together designers and non-profit organization in order to solve design problems. Several months ago, the DesignFest organizers put out a call for local nonprofit organizations to submit proposals of their design challenges and those with potentially significant impact would be considered. Touching Young Lives Founder & Executive Director, Shantell Roberts, submitted a proposal to collaborate with designers on an updated outer design for future Portable Alternative Cribs. They were selected and will collaborate with a team of volunteer designers throughout the day to leave with usable designs. Several other local nonprofits participating as well. The event is open to the public and more information about the event is available at www.designfest.weebly.com.
