Established 2003


our history

The world can be challenging sometimes, and I understand what it's like to withstand these obstacles. With the help of family and friends, we can rise above. I believe in helping each other, in community, in family. The Leo Foundation organizes humble but fun efforts to help out in a loving and caring way.

Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible!"
