Founder of For The Need Foundation 

Myan’s passion comes from personal experience of growing up in a home with foster children. Eventually his parents adopted a young girl which became his sister. His family would attend holiday parties for the foster children where gifts would be handed out. Myan, who was not a foster child, still received a gift as well. This left a deep impression and sparked a desire to always give children happiness through gifts. Thus, For the Need Foundation was born. At first, this consisted of annual holiday parties at children’s hospital. Here we are 20 years later looking to expand beyond just an annual holiday party. Always having the heart to mentor children, Myan has created a mentorship program for homeless youth. What was once a party one time a year is now a daily commitment to the community. For the Need Foundation provided monthly mentorships, activities and resources for children who do not have a home or access to opportunities.
