THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT OF MADDOX J. LOPRIORE FOUNDATION

Maddox was an exceptional boy who touched the hearts of many people during his lifetime.  Tragically, he passed away on October 17, 2018 at the age of eight years old.  The Butterfly Effect of Maddox J. LoPriore Foundation acts in his memory to provide programs that serve the local community through the inspiration of Maddox’s life.  His legacy is one of love for family, friends, school, sports, and neighbors.  The question of “What Would Maddox Do?” (WWMD) was foundational in establishing our values and is the driving force of our actions.  Since 2019, the Butterfly Effect of Maddox J. LoPriore Foundation has proudly provided nearly $72,000 in assistance to beneficiaries in the communities of Antioch, Lake Villa, Lindenhurst, and Round Lake, Illinois.  It is our goal to ensure that countless more children and families benefit from these programs, are inspired by Maddox’s life, and continue his legacy of making the world a better place.  Our hope is that the growth, success, positive actions, and influence we provide inspires youth to generate a compounding effect on society; this is the Butterfly Effect of Maddox J. LoPriore.

Please take some time to learn more about Maddox and our organization.

Then, if your heart moves you to do so, please consider making a donation or volunteering your time.

Holiday Times are very very tough for me. More so than any other day, for obvious reasons. Every day I miss Maddox more and more and the pain is relentless at times, sometiems even debilitaing.

Some of you might have heard me use the phrase, "Great things for a shitty reason', and it's true. I think the Foundation is doing some really good things for the local communities and beyond though.

To date, we have donated over $105,000!!! we have affected 293 Families, 557 Student Athletes, 26 Scholarships and over 5K lbs of food. To some that might not seem like a lot of $ but I know that the people that we have helped, appreciate it.

We still have our 20 families that we will help for Thanksgiving and we added 2 more families to our orignal 5, in helping those families have a wonderful Christmas.

We continue to extend our Youth Development Programs and we know that eventually will make a difference as these children get older. I want to thank the Lakes Jr Eagles Football Program, Jr Eagles Baseball and the Lindenhurst Area Soccer Club (LASC) for their continued support and involvement in these programs.

We can't do it without all of your support and can't thank you all enough.
