David Louis Cunha Foundation Sends Charlotte To Disney.

On May 8th the David Louis Cunha Foundation, through A Wish Come True in Coventry RI, had the true pleasure of donating $ 5,000.00 to sponsor a young girl’s wish for her and her Mom & Dad to visit Disney World in Florida. Charlotte is five years old and has congenital heart disease. Charlotte has gone through several open heart surgeries, but is doing very well presently. She is truly a joy to be with. Charlotte and her family will stay at Give Kids The World Village in Florida, the same place David stayed over twenty four years ago. Give Kids The World Village is a non-profit resort that provides a weeklong vacation to children with critical illnesses and their families. Charlotte will meet all of the Disney characters….included her favorite princesses.

Thanks to your kindness and support, Charlotte will experience this once in a lifetime dream. We are sure that she and her Mom & Dad will always treasure their Disney memories. Thank you all so very much for making Charlotte’s wish possible !! All that David’s Foundation is able to accomplish is THANKS TO YOU !!

A Milestone for the David Louis Cunha Foundation.

Dear Friends,

We are proud and yet most humbled to announce a milestone for the David Louis Cunha Foundation.  This past June, David’s Foundation exceeded $ 101,000.00 in donations to Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts children in need.  We are so very thankful.  We could have never foreseen this back in those dark early days of January, 2015.  When David left us, we knew immediately we had to honor and celebrate his life in some lasting way.  But we never imagined this.  And the only way we have been able and privileged to accomplish what we have is because of YOUYOU are the Foundation.  YOU have made it possible for us to assist these children and their families.  Even through these last two years when we’ve had to scale back our fundraising efforts due to the Covid situation, you have been there for us.   Without you, the David Louis Cunha Foundation would not exist.

So, as David’s Foundation has done time and time again, we heartfully and most sincerely THANK YOU for your kindness, your friendship, and your support on many levels.  And please, always remember, if there is a child and family that you believe David’s Foundation can assist, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.  We depend upon you to help us.  May God Bless you all with His Love & Care. Thank you.
