Save the Children Federation, Inc.
November 30, 2012

Every year I make donations to Save the Children, particularly dating back to August of 2008, when my identical twin brother and I set the Guinness World Record for the Longest Tennis Rally and did it to support Save the Children. Our record was hitting 25,944 balls consecutively without having breaks for eating or drinking - at that point approximately 25,000 children were dying around the world on a daily basis of preventable and curable diseases. We ran a car wash, silent auction and tennis clinics and cardio classes all to raise money for charity. In addition to their work around the world Save the Children is typically a first responder for catastrophies here in the US, with the latest example being Hurricane Sandy. I am proud to continue to support Save the Children, not only because they help people in need, but in particular because they help children in need. Finally, the majority of the funds that I and anyone else donates gets put to use (over 85%) while other charitable organizations use the funds for large company salaries.
