• Since beginning of 2012 through two major fundraisings, YAP has raised enough money to start building a medical clinic in Haiti
  • Recently, YAP has shifted their aim in helping the local community as well, such as supporting Compass Family Services (a non-profit that provides care for children of homeless families in San Francisco)
  • The problem is, there are 5,000 registered families that are waitlisted for housing since Compass does not have adequate shelter to provide for them


  • So what exactly is this Converse launch?


  1. Thanks to 2 brilliant and creative San Francisco based artists, Kris Mestizo and Alan Gonzalez have designed 3 different Converse shoes exclusively to San Francisco (to the left are 2 of the designs we will launch)
  2. The release is only limited to 100 pairs per design in the world
  3. All 100% of the proceeds we sell will go towards Compass Family Services, where we can provide care and shelter for the waitlisted families
  • Most importantly, this will bring hope to the thousands of children who dream of escaping their confinements of homelessness  and lack of opportunity


  • What are you waiting for? Buy the shoes, brag about it to your friends, and help us alleviate the poverty in our community
