Brother-Sister Team Raise Money for Children’s Charity
Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Brandon Sayegh and Nichole Sayegh, two energetic students from Rancho Cucamonga, CA, act as president and vice president of the Universal Surveillance Systems Foundation (USS Foundation), a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to helping poor and less fortunate children have the tools, skills and knowledge to build a better life with a hope for a brighter tomorrow.
Inspired by their father Adel Sayegh, who grew up in poverty, Brandon and Nichole radiate a contagious passion to continually find innovative ways to help children who need a boost in life. Previous events include feeding the homeless, providing complete Thanksgiving dinners to low-income families and holding special events for disabled children at local hospitals. In addition, one of their major initiatives through the USS Foundation is the Adopt-A-Bike program that has donated over 2,000 bicycles to needy children around the country for a reliable way to travel to school and get the needed education to be successful.
“Our father instilled in us that one of the most important things in life is giving back,” said Brandon. “It is our duty to share our blessings with others and encourage those who are less fortunate not to lose sight of the their hopes and dreams. We need to let them know others care, so they will always stay true in seeking a better life through education, determination and perseverance.”
“I’ve made it a major goal of my life to help and encourage others with practical solutions,” Brandon continued. “As president of the USS Foundation, I look forward to establishing and leading additional programs and initiatives to reach more people in more places with an increasingly wider scope of targeted, uplifting projects. My father’s motivating inspiration drives me to continually create new ways to support underprivileged children so they won’t lose hope and will always reach for the stars.”
Nichole commented, “We work with NCMEC because of their incredible legacy of helping vulnerable children. Since they were founded in 1984, they have assisted in recovering over 184,000 lost children.”
“For me, helping others less fortunate is one of the most fulfilling things I can do with my life,” she continued. “The great programs of the USS Foundation keep growing in number, size and reach. I consider it an honor to be a part of such a wonderful organization that has already changed so many lives.”
