WITH PRIDE | PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM CURTIS
the Together With Pride Foundation, Inc. I am
very excited about establishing this foundation to benefit
hearing impaired children in two different regions (South
Florida and the MD, VA & Washington, D.C. Metro area) with the
goal of expanding nationally in the future.
I feel that
it is important for hearing impaired children to have strong
role models to look up to -- especially hearing impaired role
models. I never had a hearing impaired role model when I was
younger. My parents were my role models because they taught me
to believe in myself that anything was possible. They also
taught me that whatever I dreamed of doing; I could
accomplish. Growing up, I had a strong supporting cast from my
family, friends, classmates, teachers, coaches and even some
strangers on the street. This is why my wife, Lisa, and I
established the Together With Pride Foundation, Inc.
We hope to provide support for hearing impaired children &
their families. We would like to teach hearing impaired
children how to set and achieve their goals while encouraging
these children to believe in themselves. Anything is possible!
We also wish to establish educational programs that will
enable children to arrive at their educational and career
like to give special thanks to these following people for
their time and help with the establishment of this Foundation:
my wife, Lisa (Vice President of the Foundation), for her
tireless help and support; John Hough (Duane, Morris, &
Heckscher LLP) for his legal advice & for filing the necessary
paperwork making this Foundation official; Rick Barsky

the Foundation’s account; Mike Aldana (AOL producer) for his
help in creating the Foundation website; Roly Rodriguez
(Graphic Artist & Friend) for his help in designing the
Foundation logo; and Joe Strasser (Director of Corporate
Relations of the Foundation) for his advice & input.

these hearing impaired children’s lives. They deserve your
help and encouragement in reaching their goals and dreams.
Thank you for your continued support and interest.
