I want everyone to know why the Dannon Project is so special to me. It was named after my brother, who had the best smile in the world. His life was taken at 18 years old by my good friend, who at the time was living a life of crime. My beautiful wife Kerri wanted to honor my brother who she never met, but loved him as much as I did. We wanted to help those who at one time lived in the crime world, but want to change their lives, and become respectful citizens. We, The Dannon Project, have helped so many people in the city of Birmingham. We want to help everyone who is getting out of prison with job training, housing, clothing, and emotional counseling. In some way, if we look back at all the things we've done, some of us could be in the same position. That is why The Dannon Project, to me, is the best organization for previously incarcerated prisoners who have turned a complete 180. Thank you for honoring this agency and helping other agencies who are helping people.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
many of the participants lives. They have told us that without this organization, they don't know where they would be. They have a changed heart because of the principles they were taught at The Dannon Project.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Change the funding to where we can help everyone for 6 months and give them peace until they can get on their feet.
