Discount Waste supports issues impacting children’s lives in less developed countries with limited welfare services. This year Discount Waste along with All Children, Inc. have supported more than 2,100 children with:
- Medical Care – Children die needlessly when aid and vaccinations are so easily available but not provided
- Nutrition – Without proper nourishment, the body and mind cannot grow and prosper
- Education – The cycle of despair will continue without this opportunity to achieve new heights
- Shelter – Children abandoned on the streets have no voice and no future
Discount Waste proudly supports allchildren.org. Change will happen when companies, individuals, and nonprofits collaborate to create long-lasting results.
All Children, Inc.
All Children, Inc. is the vision of founder Ed Foye, CEO of Discount Waste, Inc. As a teenager he survived a life threatening car accident. He had to learn how to walk, talk and complete everyday tasks all over again. With the support of his family and friends, he made a full recovery and went on to graduate from college. He knows that he was given the gift of life a second time.
As a successful entrepreneur and businessman, he has always embraced opportunities to give back to the community. In 2012 he and his wife Amy created a family foundation named International Children’s Foundation of Atlanta to fund special projects serving disabled children in third world countries.
In 2016 he founded All Children, Inc. to provide an opportunity for other like-minded companies and individuals to support children living in some of the poorest countries. So many children with disabilities have tremendous potential, but with no resources they are never given a chance.
All Children began with two projects aiding orphans in Kenya and the Philippines. By the end of the first year they were able to help fund five additional projects that included feeding hundreds of starving children, tuition for children too poor to go school, education for deaf children and medical assistance. All Children currently supports nine projects in four countries.
Currently more than 2,100 children from some of the poorest countries are receiving a second chance in life through All Children’s support. All children have value and through medical assistance, nutrition, education and shelter they will experience a better quality of life. Many of these children have the potential to be future leaders and will someday have their own stories to share.
