Holiday Shopping For Good - Santa Barbara Public Market

The Public Market has been so gracious to allow our youth-led business to sell their goods for the Holiday Season! Although our retail presence is a very special and unique destination in the market, there are many other amazing gifts for the Holidays (their gift baskets are something special) and they are all quite delicious! See below and we hope to see you there!

Public Market & Holiday Shopping For Good!

Let’s be honest, you still have a few things to shop for as we find ourselves in the throws of the Holiday Season.  Is there a better way to find the perfect gift than to ensure your purchase is handmade and helps support youth and the arts?!?

Well, you are in luck!

Youth Interactive will be selling all of our team’s products for 3 WEEKS at the Public Market ( 38 W. Victoria Street).  If you have yet to experience this extraordinarily unique, tasty and beautiful market, please come visit us and see all they have to offer!

Below is an info-graphic of all the events being hosted by the Public Market in December!  SEE YOU THERE!

A BIG Thank You

We could not be more thrilled with the community support for our Michael McDonald & Ambrosia benefit concert, and WE HOPE YOU HAD SO MUCH FUN!

For all of you who pledged a donation during our text-to-donate 15 minutes, you stole the show!  We are incredibly grateful for your generosity!!!

We must take a moment to thank Michael McDonald for his commitment to supporting our mission as well as Ambrosia and Tommy Alexander.  In so many ways, you all rock! Your support means the world to our young entrepreneurs and to us; as we help them take big strides towards reaching their dreams!

Please, stop by and see us at 209 Anacapa St, in the Funk Zone. Hope to see you soon!

Below is a special message for everyone who helped make this event such a success…

A BIG Thank You

With one week past since our celebration at Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara we cannot but gloat, just a little, at the overwhelming positive reception from the community and city visitors!  Our PR team here at Youth Interactive has gone out on the street and interviewed over 70 people about their reactions before and after….THESE MURALS ARE LOVED!

There is absolutely NO WAY this could have been a reality without the GENEROSITY of Santa Barbara Beautiful, The Santa Barbara Foundation, The McDonald Boersma Foundation, Santa Barbara Arts Commission in partnership with The City of Santa Barbara and The Ruth and Hal Launders Charitable Trust

If you have not gone to see all the murals in lower state street you MUST take a walk and check ALL of them out :)

We are excited for BIGGER things in come!

Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the individuals and organizations that helped in whichever small or big way to make this a successful project!

See you in the Funk Zone!
