Who is Born And Raised Detroit?
In the winter of 2010 a group of friends had an idea: What if they could keep Detroiters living in cities across the United States connected to the place they were born and raised? Knowing in their adopted cities they proudly sported their Tigers hats and Red Wings jerseys, they pointed to where they lived on their hand and would most likely get overly excited when Eminem or The Jackson 5 came on the radio. They started finding that even though life had taken them to far off corners of the globe, there was this need, this passion, to stay connected to the place they called home. In the fall of 2011, the Born & Raised Detroit Foundation was born and has since worked with Detroiters all over the country to host events that keep Detroiters connected to their home. It is through this camaraderie and loyal base of supporters that we have found, together, we can contribute to making Detroit a hopeful place for future generations.”
