Sadly, the world is a tough place for a lot of kids.
Some face abuse, absent parents, or are forced to contend with the dangers of street life; many will be doomed to fall through the cracks, and their prospects of a hopeful future are minimal to none. I may have worked in some of the most desolate and unforgiving places on earth, but I’m far from heartless.
One of my primary callings is reaching out to at risk youth. I believe that if we can make life-changing opportunities available to kids of all demographics, they have every hope of getting on and sticking to the right track.
For this reason, my Fighting Chance Project was formed.
In a nutshell, I believe giving back involves more than donating my spare pocket change. I take an active approach to charitable giving and, each year, our philanthropically-minded team spends hundreds of hours volunteering, participating in fundraising events and donating to great causes.
People like to know that their donations are going to help people, and not going toward paying for lunch for the employees of the charity. And that’s one of the major reasons why I try to encourage my team to make our charitable works an active process, rather than simply donating funds.
I am committed to making a difference – in the lives of my clients, my students, my team, and in the lives of our youth. I believe it’s our responsibility to give back to the communities in which we live and work. I proudly sponsor local events, create and host numerous activities, and partner with nonprofit organizations to create scholarships to my studio – all to benefit our youth.
This awesome service is made possible through donations and grants.Our outreach programs are designed to strengthen our community and empower our youth.
Do you have someone you’d like to recommend for the program? Are you interested in donating? Have questions?
