Front Row at the MTV Video Music Awards

Enjoying live performances from Taylor Swift, Pink, Green Day, Alicia Keys, and many more, the MTV VMAs this year was such a well-produced and entertaining event!

The Foundation’s is “committed to connecting young people in SAFE ways and empowering them with SKILLS and OPPORTUNITIES that will inspire them to create a kinder and braver world.”
