Details: Zach Bonner, founder of Little Red Wagon Foundation will make a special appearance at Arizona State University campuses to support their Changemaker Central backpack drives. ASU students, faculty, staff and members of the community can drop off their donated backpacks at select Changemaker Central locations. Another great option is to use Maroon and Gold dollars at the Memorial Union Pod Market to buy a backpack and necessities such as a small journal and pen, healthy snack, deodorant and socks. Gently used backpacks may also be donated.
Little Red Wagon is based on the inspirational true story of eight-year-old Zach Bonner on his quest to change the world with nothing more than his beat-up red wagon and a blazing spirit of philanthropy. When Zach sets out to help homeless children in America in the wake of Hurricane Charley, by walking from his house in Tampa, Florida to the White House, he must overcome bureaucrats and blisters, and capture the hearts of his fractured family and the entire nation.
Changemaker Central at ASU develops and nurtures students by providing the opportunities and resources to inspire, catalyze and sustain student-driven social change. It's a place where students can apply their education, expertise and passion for positive social progress and life-long civic engagement.  Students will tackle local and global challenges through collaboration, innovation and diverse approaches to problem-solving.

Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development is a private, nonprofit agency founded in 1972 by Soroptimist International of Phoenix to provide emergency shelter and services for runaway and homeless youth. The mission of Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development is to provide a safe space for collaborating with youth and young adults in our community who are vulnerable or experiencing homelessness. These safe spaces allow access to caring relationships, resources, and programs that offer opportunities for young people to develop their individual potential.
