I think of my mother, Alice Wallace, often. She was taken from us far too soon and her loving memory
lingers in my heart. Words will never fully describe the emptiness I feel, not having my best friend at my
side, watching over me with me pride and protective instincts. Not a day passes that I don’t recall her
valuable advice or that I’m not inspired by her strength. She fought a long, painful battle against Diabetes,
and up until her final breath was never overcome by pity or sorrow; nor did she ever display a moment of
weakness. My mother radiated with beauty and a power from within that in my eyes will never be duplicated.
Despite our differences she remains the paradigm of true maternal grace and elegance; a powerful force
with a heart of gold.
My mother, a successful and very well respected teacher stressed the value of family, God, community
involvement and education. The furtherance of this discipline is also an important part of my life. I have
grown into the person I am today, because I come from a family of hard working, accomplished
professionals. In order to encourage our new generation to embrace the importance of core values, I along
with my brothers, sisters and close friends have established The Alice Wallace Foundation, a fund dedicated
to helping our youth achieve the greatness within, by offering them an opportunity to pursue a quality of life
I was afforded as a youth. I know, just by the relationships I have built in my personal life, this is a cause
that is dear to so many of us. That said I would be honored if you joined us in building The Alice Wallace
Foundation into a powerful vehicle that drives the ambition of budding young minds. To contribute to the
fund please email me at email@example.com. Together we can change the life of so many deserving
young people for the better. Thank you for helping us keep her dream alive.
My Deepest Gratitude,
The mission of this organization is to promote anti-crime and anti-drug youth functions
for all ages, including special-needs children. We are pushing aggressively to take
back our youth from the infestation of gangs and violence that they are subjected to on
a daily basis. Our idea is, that if we consistently offer engaging activities that are also
learning experiences for the youth to be involved in, then just maybe, the idle time
they have, will be occupied and this will keep them off the streets and away from
drugs and crime.
Our children are in dire need of a positive environment!
We will push hard as a collective group with a focused, common goal. We will not
restrict ourselves to saving only one child, but will be involved in saving numerous
children's lives each day. We will be working towards fostering within them
upstanding, community-minded, productive individuals. We have the opportunity to
have a DIRECT IMPACT on their lives. So do You! Join with us, we need you, they need
