Cheng said The Positive Movement Foundation Empowers San Diego’s most vulnerable children and youth with the tools and support to create the future of their dreams. Its goal is to ensure that all children have access to the school supplies, computers, tutoring, mentoring, and overall support that they need to succeed.
“CosmeCon is an event designed to celebrate and empower local communities, which is why The Positive Movement Foundation was the perfect beneficiary for this event. The Positive Movement Foundation gives the most vulnerable children in San Diego the opportunity to chase their dreams just like any other child. CosmeCon is an event meant to lift people and show that anything is possible no matter where you come from,” said Cheng.
