March 23, 2013, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Demand the Change for Children was a fun, family friendly day of performances, activities, and activism held in the Rotunda at Mall of America® on Saturday, March 23.


Activities starting at 10:00 a.m.


We celebrated with fun, interactive activities for all ages.  From making origami frogs to creating quilt squares to getting a henna tattoo to creating a video story there were activities for children, youth, and adults.  The Smooch! Project had their photo booth set up, snapping photos of people smooching their loved ones or our Demand the Change for Children mascot, Happy the frog.  There was a big HOPE section where you could get involved by speaking out, being counted, and imagining the future.
