“Tony, your story is inspirational with your need to help people whilst fulfilling your own dreams. I used your positive and negative metaphor the following day with a friend who is currently going through a tough time. Thanks for a very motivational speech and I hope we do get to be a part of your work environment one day soon. I think that will be an even bigger privilege.”

“Tony has been instrumental in improving the lives of many of the children and families that he has supported over the years as an ambassador for JMF. In providing the material assistance that often isn’t funded by Government or other charity sources, the quality of life of children with special needs is markedly improved. We are very grateful to the Tony for the opportunity to work together in making this very tangible difference to so many people’s lives.”
