Find Song Hy Sok, Rescue Team in Austin Texas
Organized by Kha Sok
Who Song is: http://www.dailycal.org/2014/07/19/uc-berkeley-student-missing-texas-lake/ On the news: http://statesman.com/news/news/after-sons-lake-travis-disappearance-family-refuse/ngjYh/ On Sunday the 13th of 2014, Song Sok and 5 other of his friends went to lake Travis in Austin Texas. Song was in Dallas, Texas at the time for a summer internship at Ciao Telecom and this was a summer trip they planned for fun. At around 6:30pm, he swam out with one of his friends in separate directions. After swimming for around 10minutes, he tried to swim back to the boat and had some complications. He tried to stay afloat and his friends tried to help him, but he disappeared into the water. They have searched for Song since then but have still not found him. It has been way too long since and the underwater deep search provided by Texas Police has been suspended. Please help us get technical divers who will go into these 100ft deep, surrounded underwater with pecan trees. These specialized technical dive search crew will be contracted by us to find Song now. Thank you. God Bless you!

Swim, Fabry, Swim, Starkey Hearing Foundation
Organized by Dave Fabry
My name is Fabry. David Fabry. I have been fortunate to work as an audiologist for over 30 years. I've worked with Presidents, Kings, & CEOs, but my greatest joy has been working with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to provide hearing aids for those in need. This year, I set a personal goal to do something that terrifies me. So I decided to swim from Alcatraz to raise money for the Foundation on Sept 28, 2013! http://www.waterworldswim.com/events/A100/

help me get a strikeforce!, strikeforce wheelchair
Organized by Tyler
I have been playing power soccer for almost ten years and have gotten to travel throughout the Midwest to play in regional and national tournaments. I was one of the founding members of the Madison team, Madison Marauders. I was hooked the first time I played since it is the only sport I can play completely independently and it is a competitive team sport.

Teens Deserve a Happy Holiday, Too, Treasures 4 Teens
Organized by m54daboll
My name is Michael, and I am 16 years old. I started Treasures 4 Teens with my sister in 2010 to help teens have a happier holiday. Everyone is familiar with toy drives, but the hidden problem with them is that they really only get toys like Barbies and Hot Wheels donated, which aren't appropriate for teens. But teens deserve a happy holiday, too! Treasures 4 Teens collects age-appropriate gifts for teens in the South SF Bay Area. We are entering our 4th year and together with our friends in the RJ Fisher Builders Club, serve over 450 teens each year. For more info, see our website at www.treasures4teens.com.
