Amazing Couple Adopts 7 Siblings!

Recently, my good friend DaShoan Olds and his wife Sofia took it upon themselves to adopt 7 siblings that had been separted. These 7 brothers and sisters had been split up into different homes, and thanks to DaShoan and Sofia, they can now all be together.

On top of being caring and selfless enough to take on 7 children, DaShoan is by far the most selfless person I know. Every time we talk, he's coaching or refereeing kids, helping out with taking the youth members of his church on trips, mentoring and tutoring them, and all of this on top of being trully dedicated to teaching math to high schoolers at Rutherford High School. 

While this is a feel good story, the reality is that it costs money to raise kids. I always told myself that if I ever won the lotto or came into some money, I would definitely do something for Olds and all of his efforts to support the youth around him. Haven't quite won the lotto yet, so this is the next best thing! Any amount that you can contribute will be appreciated, and, I assure you used wisely. It all helps when you have 7 mouths to feed and 7 sets of school clothes to buy! 

Thanks so much for your support everyone!
