SUPPORT A CAUSE
Near & Dear to Geoffrey's heart
Our dad has left an everlasting legacy. When we think about his character and his faith, we know that his legacy is that of an admirable man.
It is a legacy of:
Joy in the midst of difficulty
Gratitude and humble generosity
Unconditional love for his family and friends
Choosing to see goodness in others, instead of finding faults
Kindness and hospitality to all, but especially to the outsider
Geoffrey's generosity was unmatched in life and we wish to continue his legacy.
To honor our dad, we have chosen the following charities to support. The list has been very carefully curated to truly reflect what he stood for during his life. All donations made will be split equally among the charities listed below.
Cincinnati Association for the Blind
The Blind Association was there for my dad when he lost his vision to help him readjust and continue his daily life as normally as possible. They are a donation-based organization enabling them to help people from all backgrounds.
The Healing Center
A ministry of the Vineyard Community Church, The Healing Center provides over 50 unique services designed to help people meet their practical, social, emotional, spiritual, and financial needs. They have provided support to my dad and also to those he loves in multiple ways over the years.
Tender Mercies exists to serve the vulnerable and abandoned. They transform the lives of homeless adults with mental illness by providing security, dignity, and community in a place they call home.
DAV - Disabled American Veterans
Our dad loved and served his country with pride. He taught us the value and sacrifice that service members make for our freedom. DAV empowers our nation’s heroes and their families by helping to provide the resources they need and ensuring our nation keeps the promises made to them.
We ask that you consider making a donation in our dad's name that will go directly to the charities listed above. To make a donation, follow the link to our GoFundMe page.
It is not necessarily the length of our life that determines our legacy, it is more the length of the shadow of our influence that defines what legacy we leave behind.
