"These kids belong to below poverty line families and are residents in the Englewood area, which is one of the worst crime-prone areas in the country.
I know that we all can make a difference in their lives. Everyday, there are shootings going on in the Englewood area, and I am touched by these kids desire to come to school everyday and stay in school after school, instead of being in the streets. They love so much to play chess to improve their critical thinking skills that their academic scores are also high. They see chess as a tool to improve their lives. I am sure we all can help them make that difference in their lives.
Please help them. There's nobody else that they can go to-- except to you and to the saints and angels of ICC. Whatever your heart desires will surely go a long way to make a difference in the lives of these kids."

Last year his kids once again trophied! The Mayor of Chicago was so impressed he invited the kids, coaches and parents for accolades at City Hall. Joseph has informed us that due to the successes they’ve achieved the Chicago Public Schools have adopted a Chess curriculum!! Take a look at the City Council of Chicago’s resolution thanking ICC, you !!!
