Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 27, 2006
Success University united with Feed The Children at Reconciliation Outreach in Old East Dallas, TX, on Wednesday, February 22 to feed approximately 400 poverty stricken families. Eighty percent of Old East Dallas’s population is considered below the line of poverty.
“We are very grateful to receive this food from Feed The Children; we feed 125 people everyday, and this truck load will allow us to not only help those here at Reconciliation, but allow us to reach out to the community,” said Carolyn Smith, Financial Administrator and Children’s program director for Reconciliation Outreach Ministry.
Eight hundred boxes of food and hygiene products were delivered to Reconciliation Outreach in an 18 wheeler provided by Feed the Children. Families and their children lined up behind Reconciliation Outreach where they each received a full box of food products and a full box of hygiene products.
“This is the first truck that Success University has sponsored,” said Larry Jones, president and co-founder of Feed The Children. “And it illustrates Success University’s commitment and dedication to helping those in need.”
Since July 2005, Success University has been running a campaign where students may enroll in a 14-day free trial, for only a $2 processing fee, that is donated to Feed The Children. In just a few months they have donated $19,600 dollars to the Feed The Children foundation.
“I have lived the life of poverty, living out of my car and tragedy,” said Success University’s CEO Matt Morris. “I made a promise to myself that as soon as I was fortunate enough to do so, I was going to help keep others from having to go through the same problems I did.”
Mr. Morris has definitely endured a life of tragedy. A few of the tragedies in Mr. Morris’s life include Mr. Morris’s parents divorce, the murder of his mom’s boyfriend by his father, the suicide of his father just out of prison, the lay off of his job after one and a half years, the failure of his internet marketing business, and living out of his car.
Mr. Morris is now considered a self-made millionaire by the age of 29, after the creation of his personal development company Success University. Success University is currently celebrating their first year anniversary and is already the #1 most visited personal development Web site in the world, jumping ahead of other companies such as Donald Trump’s Web site http://www.trumpuniversity.com and Tony Robbins Web site http://www.tonyrobbins.com.
