The Greatness in Giving

This is Steven, was a 13 year old, 8th grade student at the James P. Timilty Middle School in Roxbury, MA, a neighborhood of Boston. On October 4th, Steven was walking home to make his curfew of sundown when he was cut down by gunfire on the sidewalk just outside his home. But he was not forgotten. His infectious smiles, his leadership, those dreams cut short by violence will always be remembered.
Inspired by Steven's life, through raise money online to build a legacy of hope for the students at the Timilty and show them that they will never forget Steven and that there is a way out of the cycle of violence that affects many in their everyday lives, 2 scholarship grants will be awarded to 2 deserving students. So, a little help will be big help and all the funds raised will be used for scholarships and or/other future scholarships.
Firstgiving, an online fundraising campaign for any charitable cause had helped thousands and thousands of people for thousands of nonprofit organizations. Visit or for more details. The people who are supporting these causes are so worthy. Anybody can even quickly set up their own Firstgiving page to raise money for any US registered nonprofit organization. In a little way we help, there is always a joy in it!
