-RICHARD IS SPONSORED FOR BEACH CHRISTMAS 2013-

Sometimes when I am with Richard around our building, I think to myself, “We could not be any more different.” Then I see him walk into the building with one of his children, or I see him helping his son with special needs down the stairs. And I think, “there is a father who loves his children.” That is something that is consistent in Richard’s life, despite any mistakes that he may have made in his life. He desperately wants a better life for his kids and grand kids.

In my time of knowing Richard, I have never seen him more proud than the day his son, Axel, graduated kindergarten. He was beaming at every step of the ceremony! I saw his eyes as he watched Axel get his diploma, and it was like he could see the future that could come.

Please consider sponsoring Richard to give him a chance to spend a fun Christmas with his family this year. He will be the dad consistently in the waves with his kids throughout all of Beach Christmas.
