What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

There are so many, that it is hard to pick.... but If I had to pick just one, it would be the children's charities. They are what I am most passionate about. In the words of Whitney Houston, "I Believe that Children are our Future. Teach the well and let them lead the way!" I believe what children see and emulate is a reflection of what "we" the parents are showing them. A child is like a flower, when it is properly nourished (mentally, physically and spiritually), it blooms/blossoms vibrantly and spreads joy. But when a child (just like a flower is neglected), it fails to bloom, it does not blossom and there is no joy to be seen. That is why children's charities are important to me.

Why do you give through the CFC?

Because it is a blessing that I can give to others. I believe I was blessed with a good job and a decent wage, so I must give, because it has been given to me!

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

My contributions help families with children that are sick and suffering from every kind of disease imaginable to find cures and to give them hope.
