A youth-led movement in Minneapolis is helping spark some positive change.

Green Garden Bakery is selling special "soul boxes" that help youth earn some money while also giving back to the community.

"We use the word soul to incorporate Black History Month, as well as soulmate, love, Valentine's Day," said sales lead D'Loveantae Allen.

Some boxes contain shirts, body scrubs and African tea mixes while others contain baked goods. Proceeds are split among the youth and charities of their choice.
