Help Gio Give Kids a #GO@LIFE!

My name is Giovanni Corrado. I am a 20-year-old college student on a scholarship, lucky enough to have a family that has done everything to give me values, an education and above all constant support at every stage of my life.  

Thousands of kids around the world are deprived of this!

They have no home, no food, no education, no guidance and therefore no future.

I've witnessed with my own eyes 5-year-olds like Ahmed from South Africa: without access to clean water.

Disabled girls like Nancy from Bahamas, who's paralyzed from the waist down and doesn't have a wheel chair... so she crawls around her orphanage.

I am asking for your help for two reasons:

Expand my movement of young people making a difference in their local communities

and 

Partner with 5 new organizations in 5 continents to help the needy with their individual necessities. 

The one thing I learned by visiting many organizations is that they all have different needs.

In Bahamas, they need help paying for electricity due to its exorbitant cost on the island. In Italy, they struggle entertaining special kids during holidays who are grow sad and lonely. In South Africa, they desperately need school supplies and assistance with educational costs.

These are just a few... I want to help more!

100% of the funds will be used for the following:

1. Recruiting young volunteers in South America, Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa.

2. Collaborating with grassroots organizations that host children, often orphans, from ages 3 to 18.

3. Allocating the funds to meet their immediate and individual necessities.

One month ago, I launched the Giovanni Corrado Foundation (GCF), a non-profit organization with the goal of mobilizing youth groups around the world and create events for less fortunate children in different countries and circumstances.

I gathered my family, friends, and friends of my friends. I reached out to anyone I could and managed to organize youth groups in 4 different countries: Bahamas, Italy, South Africa, and Netherlands.  Through self-funding and lots of hard work, I am proud to say we made an impact to the lives of many.

The goal is for other young people to see that we can make a difference, we don’t necessarily have to be rich or older to help others.

Our natural mode can be to give, serve and put others first! Most believe they don’t have enough money, enough time or enough experience to help others. This is simply not true! I am here to seek your help because GCF and our volunteers have the energy and desire to change the world one step at a time.

Some will help with money, others with time. They are both needed.

You can participate with whatever you can afford. We need funds to do this, but we also need people that will: speak out for us on social media, network with us, talk to friends and family, or host a summit!

We are a group of determined people with energy and desire to transform lives.

Our promise to you: we are committed to be as transparent as possible with our work, create a worldwide initiative to change the way we give back to local communities, and give kids a #GO@LIFE !

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted because giving back is as good for you as it is for those we are helping.

Thank you for your support.

Giovanni Corrado
