    Dear Lisa,

    I want to thank you for being such a wonderful person. Reading your write-up also told me you have great values! It is good to see young people who think of others and their dreams. You are the type of person I hope will become interested in The Chaka Chinyelu Foundation, Incorporated. We need new board members that are accomplished not only in their field of work, but know how to work with and direct people. I feel the the foundation could be a world class organization. I have this as a dream to honor our two sons’ memory and fulfill the dreams of other African American young men. Building an endowment for scholarships that would follow the young men for the four years of their college education. We also want to aid families of Downs Syndrome children and other deserving community projects.

    Keep up the great work and always keep your family first! We hope you and your family will join us this summer for our activities to celebrate the 30th and 40th birthday of Chaka and Changa. The golf and the tennis tournament should be a lot of fun and it would be great to be the first winner of the tournament and have your name be the first engraved on the plaque. We hope you will contact us for more information or go to the website. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and for being a great mom!
