Kids Making A Difference

Become One VOICE is a non-profit organization, founded by Rachel Johnson, that enables youth in the community to use what they're passionate about or good at to make a difference. Often times, we are put down for being too young or naive, however we all have the power to make change. We have the power to use our voice, and that's what we're all about. We've taken on various projects in the past such as working with United Way, the American Cancer Society, the Alzheimer's Association, St. Jude's, Make a Wish, and Case for Kids to name a few. Essentially, we are a charity that helps out other charities. We have a store located in the Target wing of the West Valley Mall in Tracy that sells art from local youth artists, vintage comics, collectible dolls, movies, and many books. Every month, we have youth musicians come down and perform in our store to gain exposure and experience, plus get community service hours. And now we've recently expanded to offer face painting on the weekend and have people dressed up as Cinderella and Prince Charming, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder, Merida, Pocahontas, and many more... However, we are possibly looking to relocate to downtown Tracy on the first of the month, due to an increased rent charge to stay at the mall... Although, just because of a possible relocation, it doesn't mean we don't want to make as much of a difference as we can. So it would mean the world to us for people to stop by and check out our store. This is something for charity and we are very passionate about it, hopefully others will be too.
