With my dad's passing I have been through, so much anger, grief, sadness, and then again back to anger. I love my dad so much and I never thought that I would have to live my life without him in it. He was my best friend, I wish that I could just tell him I love him 1 more time. I wish that I could kiss him 1 more time. But I cant. He isn't here anymore. And I am so mad at him for just leaving me, here. So I am only left with these really great memories, of him and the things that we did together. My dad was a great man,and a even better dad. I'd have to say that my dad is the "World's Bestest Daddy". I am so blessed that I was his kid. Me and my sister and my family want to carry my dad's great name and his legacy. We want to be able to show others how great my dad was. He loved to be involved in his community and help out with charity events. My dad was a big part in the "No Hope N Dope" program that was put on by Sumo legends Akebono & Konishki. My dad always said "stay clean, stay strong". He was given awards from the Hawaii state Governor for his role in the program. My dad used to travel around to different school in Hawaii and preach about the inportantace of staying in school and working hard and getting good grades, and having a goal in life. My dad also held many fund raisers for children with disabilities and raised money for their hospital bills, or needed surgery. He would put on fun and original events like a "Lift-A-Thon", arm wrestling meets, homerun derby's, and my favorite his hot water balloon race. My dad loved to help others, always. And I want to be able to carry out his dream. So with the help of some of my dad's closest friends, we started the Keith D Jones foundation.We are a non profit 501(c)3 and registered in the state of Hawaii. Our goal is to be able to donate all the monies that have been collected every 4 months, to charities of choice. Here are some of the charities that we plan to be a part of, The Muscular Dystrophy Association for kids, SADD is Students Against Destructive Decisions, and my dads favorite the Special Olympics. We also plan on hold our events to raise money for local children or schools in need. But the whole point of this foundation to to help the keiki. I read somewhere that the kids of today, are the leaders of tomorrow. This is why it is so important to help our future leaders, caregivers, teachers, one day mothers, and one day fathers.
