Jeff Levitan, Executive Director & Chairman of the Board
"The measure of a person's life will be the contribution they make to others."
A Chicago, Illinois native, Jeff Levitan knew it was his life’s mission to make a difference in the lives of others at the young age of thirty. In 2002, after experiencing much personal success in Financial Services, Jeff founded All For One Charity in order to invest his energy, passion, and success into helping children also have the opportunity to find success.
Greg Kapp, Advisory Board Member
"To whom much is given, much is required."
After hearing about Jeff Levitan's plans for All For One, Greg felt a divine calling to help. "God has blessed my wife and I in extraordinary ways, and I believe He has blessed us, so that we can be a blessing to those in need."
John & Arlene Shin, Advisory Board Members
"We only have what we give."
Immigrating from Korea to the United States as a young boy, John Shin constantly looked for opportunities to help others. It was through his Financial Services practice that he met Jeff Levitan, and saw the greater cause of All For One. John believes strongly in the cause of aiding children in need, and for that reason he decided to join All For One.
Jeff & Marcy Blochowiak, Advisory Board Members
"Making an impact on children around the world."
Jeff was raised in Milwaukee, while Marcy was raised in the heart of the South in Georgia, and they both have a desire to make an impact on children around the world. Trusting in the leadership of its founder, Jeff Levitan, and believing in his vision of helping under-privileged children with 100% of the donations given, the Blochowiaks are strong supporters for All For One. They believe that through hard work and discipline, the children can be and do anything they set their minds to. They also believe that if the children put all of their trust and faith in Jesus, he will give them all of their dreams.
Fradel Barber, Advisory Board Member
"Whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world." - Talmud
Born in Brooklyn and the eldest of twelve, Fradel has always had a hunger to improve her own and her societies future. Fradel became intrigued about All For One and it's positive impact throughout the world. Fradel strongly believes that by impacting a child who can one day grow up and give back, will always continue the cycle of doing good for others.
Kash and Tina Rastan, Advisory Board Members
"A life not lived for others is not a life." - Mother Teresa
Kash and Tina Rastan were born in Iran and immigrated to the United States in their late teens to achieve the American Dream. However, after graduating from the University of Southern California and UC Davis as engineers, they soon realized that the key to the American Dream was not higher education, but rather entrepreneurship. Both Kash and Tina always wanted to be a part of a foundation that did not just donate money to children’s causes, but actually taught children how to be successful so they could have the same shot at success that Kash and Tina did.
Michael and Stacey Stokes, Advisory Board Members
"Key life lesson I have learned is that whatever your situation is, you can change it. Anything is possible if you want it bad enough."
Was raised in Wayne New Jersey my whole life. I’m the youngest of 4, I have a brother and 2 sisters. My father was a project manager at ITT, and Mother was a school teacher. I have a Business degree from Stockton State college, my first job was working at Pfizer pharmaceuticals. Then an Uncle of mine introduced me to the Financial services business. Started with the business part time and in 10 months was making more money part time then my full time job. 25 years later I’m a CEO of World Financial Group.
What intrigues me most about all for one is it mission to help children around the world. It’s a good worthy cause and we can make a difference.
The key element of becoming a board member is that all the money goes to the kids. None of the donations go to pay administration costs, since those are all absorbed by the board members.
Mo and Sofia Shah, Advisory Board Members
"To ALWAYS focus on the positives in life. It does not matter where we live or what we poses we will always have a choice to either focus on the positives or the negatives and we must make 100% effort to focus on the positive things in our life and have an attitude of gratitude because at the end of the day we have life on this beautiful planet and that within itself is the greatest gift."
Mo and Sofia Shah grew up in Orange County, California. Mo is the oldest of two brothers and grew up in a single mom household. Sofia is also the oldest and has a younger sister. Mo's mom and Sofia's parents made major sacrifices and worked very hard to provide for their families, and often times struggled to make ends meet due to the process of adapting to a different country since both were first generation immigrants. When Mo and Sofia got involved with WFG in 2010 the main driving force for them was to retire their parents and they were fortunately able to do this in 2013. Another great lesson we have learned over the years is that adversity can be our greatest asset. Often times we can let adversity defeat us but it is important to understand that adversities are put in our path to make us stronger. We must make a conscious deliberate effort to rise above any adversity and conquer it to the best of our ability. It is nothing more than life's way of testing us and if we understand this it allows us to better handle the winds of life.
What intrigues us most about All For One is the amazing impact this organization has had on the lives of so many children in need. These stories have touched our hearts for years and I am so excited to see how much more of an impact All For One can have in the coming years.
We have truly been blessed and we believe it is our responsibility to give back to those in need. We can do this not only by our charitable contributions but also with the contribution of our time and by spreading the word and giving others the opportunity to also give back. Having the opportunity to spread this mission with others and being in a leadership role is the main reason we wanted to become board members of All For One. We believe the continued success of this organization lies in inspiring as many people as possible to give back in any way they can. We are blessed to have the opportunity to be board members and we are in a position where we can truly help All For One grow and ultimately touch the lives of so many more innocent souls.
