Thank you for your desire to donate to The Everett and Austin Project. This project, or perhaps better described as a foundation, has been created posthumously to honor my 2 boys who have passed away at age 16 and 22 from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
Our purpose is to help the poor, especially in third world countries, to deal with this horrible disease and other rare diseases. Please donate to the cause. Here is the easiest way to do a straight up, simple donation:
America may not be in perfect shape, but when compared to the African state of poverty, the American poverty pales considerably. There are always others in the world who have greater needs than those in countries who have been blessed with running water, reliable food sources, and functioning hospitals.

According to Zachary’s blog, there was a study done in 2010 that shows that America has 49.7 million people living in poverty (15% of the 325.7 million people), and Africa has 239 million people living in poverty (20% of the 1.216 billion people).
