A couple weeks into the Covid-19 pandemic, Garfield highschool junior Dylan Stepherson wanted to find a way to help support his community. He wasted no time enlisting his sister Eva, who's in ninth grade. Together they formed CARE-19, a nonprofit with the mission to reduce stress for families in need, while helping people smile a bit more. They quickly identified partners including Skinny Dipped Almonds, Kaiser Permanente, and Evergreen Recovery Centers to donate necessary goods. With help from volunteers and donors, they've distributed 100 care packages to low income families, with another 100 on the way. Dylan never thought he'd become an entrepreneur this early on but says "If you have a goal or a dream you really care about, go for it."

Mikaela is a Founder/CEO and executive coach. In 2015, she founded Reverb, to help companies create healthy, inclusive cultures that scale. Last year, Reverb was named as the second fastest growing company in the state by PSBJ. Before Reverb, Mikaela held HR leadership roles at several Northwest companies. She enjoys being part of the Seattle startup community, where she gets to work with mission driven leaders. Her book Female Firebrands: Stories and Techniques to Ignite Change, Take Control, and Succeed in the Workplace was released in January 2020.

The website they created was https://www.care-19.org/
