Christian also enjoys drawing and does so very well.  Because of his big heart, he is saddened by the thought of so many animals in shelters. He'd like to help spread the word and increase animal adoptions.  

Alahkai | 11 years old  

Alahkai is in the 4th grade and is a total daredevil. He loves spicy and hot foods and enjoys pushing himself with challenging activities. He loves his family, but also craves alone time to reconstitute. Alahkai enjoys football and playing with his friends and brothers. Alahkai absolutely loves everything John Cena and WWE. He enjoys wearing his wrestling belt and playing with all of his wrestling men. Alahkai hates seeing homeless people on the street and has decided that he'd like to help people without homes find homes. He has a very big heart, is very giving and loves freely.

Chianu is in the 4th grade. He really loves basketball, learning Spanish and playing with friends and his brothers. He also loves getting  brand new toys. His favorite performers are Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars. and he spends lots of time watching their videos and learning their moves.  Chianu has a desire to help foster children. He once saw a bus full of foster children greeted by San Diego Padres staff members at Target to purchase needed items. That was an impactful & emotional moment for him and he continues to talk about it.  Chianu's name means "God hears" and he has decided he wants to help foster children find loving homes.
