A Fire Took Ojo's Home

How would you feel if you returned home to find out that everything is gone? Everything. Pictures of friends and family. Clothes. Everything you worked hard to build your entire life, only to have what's on your back. This is what my coach, Ojo Onaolapo felt like. After returning from work in a different state, he arrived only to find what was left of a burning building. Today, a San Antonio fire during record high temperatures took everything away from my coach. We are already in a difficult time with COVID, so you can imagine the degree of heartache one has to lose everything. Ojo is not just a talented table tennis player, he is also a very dear friend of mine. I have come to know him since he moved to San Antonio last month, and he truly is a wonderful human being and has become a best friend of mine. Thankfully, he is okay, however, I am asking for your help. Please consider contributing to the cause to help Ojo get back on his feet. All proceeds will go directly to him. I am just trying to organize this to make his life a little easier. 

I truly appreciate your time and generosity.
