Save A Child’s Heart (SACH) is one of the largest philanthropic undertakings in the world, providing urgently needed pediatric heart surgery and follow-up care for indigent children from developing countries. Based in Israel, SACH’s mission is to improve the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children from countries where the heart surgery they need is unobtainable.
The CF Bane campaign is a unique Lucosky Brookman Foundation initiative designed to create and raise additional awareness about the effects of Cystic Fibrosis (“CF”). CF is a life-threatening genetic disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system, often times making it difficult to breathe. Richard M. Canto, also known as “CF Bane”, and his ever growing army, through the help of the Lucosky Brookman Foundation, participate in various obstacle course races and other athletic events while wearing a “bane mask” in an effort to illustrate some of the breathing challenges people living with CF face when participating in both everyday life and athletic activities. The mask serves as a reminder as it inhibits oxygen from entering the lungs which is the leading symptom of CF. CF Bane’s mission is to raise an army of supporters, “CF Bane’s Army”, to heighten awareness and most importantly, assist in raising the funds necessary to eliminate CF. Over the years, the LBF has donated to numerous CF related organizations and events including the Boomer Esiason Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Stanley Richard Foundation.
The LBF Global Sock Initiative is dedicated to participating with charitable organizations across the country who are committed to fulfilling one of the most basic human needs of those experiencing homelessness in our communities. Socks are the single most in demand item needed by the homeless, yet are among the most under-donated article of clothing. The LBF Global Sock Initiative organizes and coordinates sock drives across the state of New Jersey and donates those socks to homeless shelters through its partnering organizations. The Lucosky Brookman Foundation recognizes that even minor acts of kindness, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a tremendous impact on someone’s life and the community.
The Lucosky Brookman Foundation recognizes that there are many wonderful causes worthy of donations of time and money. We seek to partner with our donors to help identify those charities that fall within our mission statement and allocate as much time and resources to these other initiatives as possible.
