About International Children's Support Foundation (ICF) Established in 2006, the International Children's Support Foundation (ICF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to planting seeds of hope in the minds and hearts of children worldwide. ICF founder Richard Mahler's intense compassion and motivation for helping children was ignited over twenty years ago when he began participating in community outreaches to secure the needs of at-risk city children, gang members and foster children. A foster child himself, Rich was blessed with a new lease on life through the support of the loving people who adopted and raised him. Rich's foster parents gave him hope, guidance, and an opportunity for a brighter future. Recognizing the opportunity that was extended to him as a foster child, Rich made a lifelong pledge to improve the lives of needy and challenged children around the world. Today as a successful entrepreneur, Rich seeks to implement new business initiatives to help fund the ongoing expansion of the ICF so it can support programs, events, and charities worldwide. The ICF implements this hope through events around the world featuring professional athletes and celebrities. These events are dynamic, educational, and fun-filled, featuring heart-to-heart stories of inspiration between athletes, celebrities, and children. The International Children's Support Foundation has also initiated national programs such as HYPE (Homeless Youth Program Enrichment) and CHID (Children's Household Items Drive) to help those less fortunate by providing meals, clothing and home goods.
