When Antonio was around nine years old he told his mother he wanted to be a ballet dancer. Unfortunately for his family not only was ballet too expensive, at times they were homeless. That didn't stop Antonio from dreaming and he continues to persevere in the face of adversity. He has found a way to live out his dream, but it isn't easy.
Cincy Stories, a 501c3 Non-Profit dedicated to building community through story, met Antonio while working in his community. We were blown away by his determination and passion for his dream and knew we had to share his story. We believe in the power of Antonio's dream and wanted to provide him with as much help as possible.
When we spoke to him about what might help, he simply asked for help with dancing materials, clothes, shoes, etc. But the reality is that Antonio takes the bus day and night, to and from rehearsals, classes and performances. We believe that with this gift he would benefit with the opportunity to buy the things he needs for ballet, but also for life. If you believe in Antonio's dream, too, we wanted to give you all the opportunity to be part of making his dream reality.
100% of what's given is tax deductible donations and will go directly to Antonio.
