All of the companies below donated their products or services to help the children at Crossover International Academy. Our projects are not possible without corporate support. A huge thanks to all supporters!
Thanks to Tom Ferry’s efforts and support in 2013 we raised nearly $19,000! Tom Ferry is a renowned motivational speaker and business coach focused on helping real estate professionals reach their fullest potential. Every year thousands of professionals from around the world meet in Southern California for Tom’s largest event of the year – the Success Summit. Through this platform attendees learn about Wings for Crossover and are able to purchase items with all proceeds benefiting the charity. The money raised during the 2013 Summit alone allowed Wings for Crossover to purchase land in Ghana and begin construction on a much-needed school and sleeping accommodations for the children.
Tom Ferry’s 2014 Success Summit took place in Anaheim, CA August 5-8. Tom’s team at the Summit raised awareness and helped coordinate donations of nearly $20,000 again! The attendees of the Summit were friendly and enthusiastic about supprting Wings for Crossover. This year’s campaign contributed to the final stages of construction of the elementary and middle school classrooms. Tom Ferry and the attendees of the Success Summit over the last two years have been instrumental in helping Wings for Crossover complete the first phase of construction.
