Help Make a Difference
In 2006, Robert's IDEAL Giveaway Program was conceptualized by Robert Pio to help relieve poverty among his peers with disabilities.   This empowering  program is twofold.  It provides material benefit with dignity and an  empowering opportunity to make choices.  Qualified individuals are invited to "shop" for FREE and enjoy a "FREE" lunch too.  To date, Ideal Way has collected and distributed merchandise, and hot meals, valued at more than $705,000.  Also, Partnering schools benefit from mentorship opportunities provided by IDEAL Champions & Leadership Mentors.
