Former Members: 

Jacob Bain | My name is Jacob Bain, and I am a senior in the class of 2016 at Phoenix Country Day school. Since the development of Ink 4 Kidz in 2010, I have gained a much better perspective of the world we live in. The values I learned from playing basketball and swimming have helped me in growing Ink 4 Kidz. For me, the best part about Ink 4 Kidz is looking back at where we started and realizing how many kids lives we have changed in such a short time.

Ari Bradshaw | Greetings, My name is Ari Bradshaw. Currently I am a senior at Phoenix Country Day School and have studied there for the past 5 years. Through Ink 4 Kidz I have gained a more powerful perception of the world around me and the city in which I’ve lived my whole life. I enjoy being involved in the community and helping children who are not as fortunate. Everyone deserves to live the best life possible, and through Ink 4 Kidz I know I’ve made a positive change in the life of thousands of local children. In a addition to being a member, I am also the webmaster of the Ink 4 Kidz website.
Sam Garvin | My name is Sam Garvin, and I am currently a senior at Phoenix Country Day School. I have attended this school for the last thirteen years and have made memorable friendships along the way, some of the strongest of which were with these guys in Ink 4 Kidz. I joined Ink 4 Kidz because I wanted to make a difference in this world and community of ours that is begging for leaders like us, especially on the youth level. Over the last five years, I think that we have successfully made a significant impact on the education of thousands of kids in the Phoenix area, while also hopefully inspiring others around us to make a difference of their own in whatever way they can.

Drew Hosmar | Let me preface this by saying that I am a huge fan of soccer. Soccer is one of the most universal languages in the world. I have been able to play soccer with many people who don’t even speak English, but that does not keep us from enjoying the beautiful game. Similar to soccer is philanthropy, where one also does not need to understand others in order to give or receive gifts and donations. I joined Ink 4 Kidz in the first place because I truly love to help others, especially when in need. Charity and soccer alike bring all types of people together no matter what. As the members of Ink 4 Kidz and I move on in life, it is a truly humbling experience to be a part of such a great group of people, and to be accomplishing amazing goals.
Yash Muley | My name is Yash Muley. I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and moved to Phoenix in my sixth grade year. I am very active and play three sports (soccer, basketball, and baseball). I started Ink 4 Kidz with my friends to give back to the community while also being able to have fun and enjoy it. yash
matt Matt Rosenthal | Hello my name is Matt and I am from Scottsdale, Arizona. I joined Ink 4 Kidz because I thought it would be a fun and creative way to give back to the community that has been so great to me throughout my life. Ink 4 Kidz has opened my eyes up to the reality for millions of people around the world and has helped me realize how fortunate I am.
Luis Tano | My name is Luis Tano, and I am 17-year-old senior at Phoenix Country Day. I was born in Havana, Cuba, and immigrated to the United States when I was 9 years old. I love to play sports and to work out—I play soccer, basketball, and baseball. I joined Ink 4 Kidz because I believed that it was the perfect way to give back to this community that opened its arms to me. Phoenix is my adopted home, and I am superbly gracious to it for providing me with new opportunities. It is easy to turn a blind eye on the problems and needs of others, especially if they don’t affect us directly every day, but the truth is that there are people in need right around the corner in our community.
