Because of my love for children, I have adopted a beautiful boy who is 5 years old now. Because of him and all children, this is one of the reasons that Red Meets Pink Foundation was founded 15 years ago, to make a better tomorrow for them.
Because of this great passion in making a difference in this world of suffering, Red Meets Pink Foundation was started on September 11 2003. The reason for this great foundation was in memory of my sister who lost her battle to cancer at the very young age of 40, leaving behind 8 kids, between the ages of 8 to 18 years of age. This was very painful and devastating to our family. In 2003 I read an article about the epidemic of AIDS in Africa affecting orphaned children, which really touched my heart.
That is when I decided to do something about that painful reality. Losing my sister to cancer and having lost friends to HIV/Aids, I started to save money to do an event to raise funds for Aids and Cancer. I called up some friends and told them my idea and asked for their help and on Saturday September 11, 2003 we had our inaugural event, which was a great success. Even though the idea was just to make it a onetime event, thanks to the ongoing support from our friends, family and sponsors, we are still going strong.
Fifteen years later, we are still working hard to achieve a better world for tomorrow, free of suffering from the brutal effects of Aids and Cancer. The volunteers at Red Meets Pink are a very energetic group of young men and women working tirelessly towards the hope to one day find a cure for these two devastating diseases which affect those close to their hearts. Being the proud founder of Red Meets Pink Foundation, I Invite each and every one of you to join us in our journey for a better tomorrow and future without Aids and Cancer which affect so much of us and our loved ones. Let’s make a better world for the future generation of children and youth.
Red Meets Pink
“Hi my name is Delia Sousa and I am a cancer survivor. I heard about Red Meets Pink and the great work they do through my sister-in-law five years ago. Since then I have attended their fundraising functions and thoroughly enjoyed myself. It is great to see Mario and the rest of the volunteers give up their own personal time to raise money to find the cure. I am so grateful to know that there are people in this world that have the energy and the will to fight for others. To Mario and the Red Meets Pink volunteers, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Keep up the good work. “
I have known Mario for several years and have attended some of the Red Meets Pink Fundraisers over the years, although not as many as I would have liked to attend. Mario is truly a great person. That, on his own time, he raises funds to help children suffering with Aids in Africa and for various cancer foundations, to me, this makes Mario an amazing person. I was diagnosed 3years ago with breast cancer, and knowing the work that Mario has done over the years, I am very grateful, that he, along with the volunteers of Red Meets Pink, can make a difference in the search for a cure. I wish Mario and his Foundation many, many more successful years so that he can continue to help those who are hoping that one day there will be a world without Aids and Cancer. Thank you, Mario, for giving me hope.
I cannot get enough of Red Meets Pink events. A fundraiser that their volunteers put so much time and effort into each and every event. I have been attending their events for about 14 years now and I will continue to support this cause. Not only are their events fun, but they’re also very captivating. Thank you, Mario for constantly reminding us the true meaning of friendship and believing in this cause - if it weren’t for you; there wouldn’t be a Red Meets Pink. Thank you for believing in this cause and spreading awareness. I will continue to vouch for this fundraiser as a loyal supporter.
Hi my name is Tony and my company is TLC cleaning I have been sponsoring them for nine years. I believe in them and I believe in trying to help out any way I can. I will continue to sponsor them as they are trying to help find a cure for this disease. I too have been touched by this deadly disease with two of my sisters having breast cancer fortunately for them they are still alive and with us, so as long as I can help in finding a cure for this deadly disease I too will continue to sponsor Red Meets Pink as they continue to help out in finding a cure for this deadly disease.
There is no better cause than supporting what you believe in and that’s why we support “Red Meets Pink” and have supported them for several years. “New Aged Finished Carpentry” has been a proud supporter in donating to this great cause. All it takes is someone with passion and hope to start something great and that’s what Mario has done. Thank you for starting something and letting us become a part of it. Breast cancer and AIDS can affect anyone, from loved ones to strangers. That’s why “New Aged Finished Carpentry” will continue to donate for a cure to be found. Stand up for what you believe in and never lose hope.

I became a volunteer & supporter for Red Meets Pink Foundation 12 years ago because I believe in Mario & all that he does. It's a great feeling at the end of the day, knowing that I was a part of making a difference to these two causes, Cancer & Aids. We have a great group of volunteers who work together & support one another. It can be very exhausting at times putting an event together, but so worth it at the end of the day.
When I lost my mom to cancer, I wanted to be a part of a fundraiser that was working towards making a difference. I was invited to one of Red Meets Pink events, and was welcomed with opened arms. I immediately was interested in knowing how I could be a part of it and contribute more. I have being a volunteer with Red Meets Pink for 4 years it has been an amazing journey. It feels great knowing you’re being a part of something, with a wonderful group of people, working towards the same goal.
