When we are children, we all dream of becoming someone memorable, someone who has an impact. Along the way, though, most of us fall victim to settling for mediocrity. I Do It For Her assists those who have re-ignited that spark after a life-changing event to become someone better than they ever thought possible. Our mission is to prove that all it takes is one person, one broken barrier at a time, to change the world.
I Do It For Her, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, has two separate purposes:
First, we select and award individuals with the resources needed to accomplish a lifelong goal, however small or big it might be. It is our belief that the best weapon in a world deterred by the risk of failure are individuals who are willing to accept the challenge to better themselves through adversity.
Second, we also provide financial scholarships to under-privileged youth in the St. Louis, MO, area to receive a meaningful education through a partnership with the KIPP Charter School programs. The value and power of a bright young mind is vital to any facet of life, and should be encouraged, regardless of their economic status.
In both groups, we make it a requirement that each participant gives back to their community and work alongside them to create a lasting and meaningful action that has an impact on those less fortunate.
The I Do It For Her Foundation was created in 2012 as the brainchild of founders Adam Casey & Jason Klarfeld. Having volunteered with refugee children in Kosovo, HIV positive families in Kenya and orphans in Southeast Asia, the young & driven duo have set their hearts on changing lives in their own community. Both having been inspired by the love of a single figure in their past, they recognize that a person's comfort zones are the only thing holding them back from greatness.
