Review for Shane Victorino Foundation, Las Vegas, NV, USA
Most professional athletes with even greater fame and fortune than Shane, DON'T give back to their communities. Almost as soon as Shane received his first "real" contract, the Shane Victorino Foundation. They didn't go out and buy a plane, vacation homes in foreign countries, or other ridiculously lavish things. This just goes to show the ultimate character of these two amazing people. I have seen, first hand, the grateful recipients of Shane & Melissa's generosity. Giving the $900,000 to the Boys and Girls Club in Philadelphia, although a large sum, is but a tiny contribution in the greater scheme of things. I have no doubt that the Shane Victorino Foundation will continue to help the communities that it serves. For the first time, in a long time, the underprivileged kids in Philadelphia and on Maui have one thing money can't buy: Hope.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the joy on the faces of the recipients of Shane & Melissa's generosity.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
want to help more often.
