I remember the day I almost took my life. I was so low. My pain ran so deep with failure. So deep with feeling like I
wasnt enough! Feeling like nobody cared! Feeling like it was the end! I almost did it! In the midst of deciding how to
end it! I was saved by God. He sent Vegas Don with a message that was so simple and so clear.....
IF THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT....YOU GOTTA GIVE IT TO GOD!!
This statement saved my life!!!

My son Brandon needed some advice and he couldn't immediately get his Dad and I ,My husband and I were going
to scold him about bothering you until he explained that I needed things to happen "fast and a hurry" I know you
have only been in our son's life a couple of years, but the impact is clear. Just know you are in his top five and you
are the man/mentor who can " turn it up" and I think in their world that means a lot so from Rodney and I a big
thanks for being there for my kids and all the others! You are awesome!!

I didn’t know anything about Campaign4Change or Coach Don, until i went on the website myself and read about
all the things that C4C does. I really admire Coach Don for changing his life and helping others to change their lives
too. Coach Don taught me more than just playing basketball, he taught me the importance of giving back to the
community, which is very important.

C4C4LIFE is great.. It keeps me out of the streets and keeps me out of trouble. It help me become a better player
and to believe in my shot. Another good thing is that we pray before each game. We also learned life skills..

Dear, Coach Don
I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to play in Don's basketball league. I was introduced to a
environment of elite talent. I learned what it means to truly be a team player, not just on the court but off the court as well.
