Message from the Founder

 

I started All Choices Matter to help a child. To help a hurt child heal.  To help a child understand how wonderful life is and what great possibilities exist.  To help a sad child smile. To help a happy child shine.  To help every child know that he or she deserves to be treated with respect. To help the less confident child recognize his or her own unique qualities.  To help the creative child understand that it’s OK to be different. To help a child avoid a path of destruction.  To help a child realize that asking for help is a courageous act, not a sign of failure.  To help a child know how to reach out to another child who is alone.  

Young people face incredible changes.  Some changes will improve their lives and society, some will be unfair and destructive.  Every choice a child makes takes that child closer to, or farther from, that child’s goals and dreams.

All Choices Matter was started to give every school, community, and corporate leader a creative and effective way to work together to help a child.  

Thank you for helping us make a difference.
