Charity

Ralph Trionfo

Simply put, I’m just wired to help others. I get things done, I can lead a team to get things done right and generate the result I seek when I’m on a mission. Whether it’s doing a quick fundraiser to send supplies to those affected after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico or organizing a fun event to benefit the local Boys and Girls Club, this is a big part of who I am.

 

If your neighbor is in distress, hopefully, this platform and my network can come together and help. As they say “everything counts”.  Eventually, I will have my own formal foundation a 501c3 non-for-profit that will be effective in raising awareness and fund to support various causes.

 

I’m a “club kid” when I was ten years old, I was on the swim team spending my time after school at the boys and girls club doing my homework and playing with other kids in a safe fun environment. So I personally know first-hand how important these clubs are to the youth in our communities.

 

Until recently I served as a Director of the Board at the Variety Boys & Girls Club of Queens the largest after-school program in Western Queens. This program cares for nearly 200 children during after school hours for a safe, active and positive environment as a constructive alternative to the streets. It was fun to participate in the following commercial – check it out on YouTube 

I lost a niece at a young age after a tragic fight with Leukemia, so I took action and co-produced charity events such as Comedy Heals on YOUTUBE, a charitable comedy fundraiser invoking the healing power of laughter in a special benefit comedy show. It was a lot of work, a huge effort from my staff and many sacrifices, but as you can see in the video – it was a success and it felt amazing! I’m looking forward to doing more to support the fight against these deadly blood diseases. I’ve participated in several “light the night” walks in NYC over the years with my family. It’s a fun way to get together for a cause. check out the following link and contact me if you’re interested in building a team. The walks take place at various locations http://www.lightthenight.org. All proceeds for Comedy Heals (once I restart this initiative) go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and The Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation to support their mission to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma and improve the lives of patients and their families.

 

I’m also very passionate about being there for those many men and woman that have served our country. We all must do all we can to help their transitions back into society with quality services and support. Working closely with the Wounded Warrior Project to do what I can is a big part of my Charitable efforts. Of course “Cancer Sucks!” so Relay for Life is my choice organization to help fight back against the disease. Autism, orphanages, homelessness, are among the other causes that I care deeply about. Let’s all do what we can to get involved any way we can.
