Raphael Gould-Schwartz 931430_193372184149482_275863737_n.jpg Raphael Gould-Schwartz is a 13-year-old boy who has a passion for helping others. At the beginning of this year Raphael got involved in One Voice For Laos and since then he has been an active member who has been able to change the lives of Laotian children. Raphael decided that he wanted to get involved with this humanitarian project after he went to One Voice For Laos' monastery presentation last summer. Throughout the year Raphael has raised money for One Voice For Laos by helping out with a Cabaret, working a desk at Oriole 9 and asking for donations, putting cans in stores, doing a can shake at Hurley Ridge Market, and donating some of his own Bar Mitzvah money. Raphael says that he is so fond of this project because "It's a community operated project run by teens that just want to help". He also loves being a part of One Voice For Laos because everyone forgets about his or her own problems. Raphael plans to stay involved with One Voice For Laos and eventually get involved with more Humanitarian projects. In the future, Raphael hopes that he will have the chance to visit Laos. When Raphael is not saving the world, he plays Clarinet, learns the Bass, and plays in a band! Raphael's hard work has culminated in one Laotian student being able to go to college. This is such an amazing accomplishment that took hard work and dedication but the results were worth every minute of Raphael's time. It is so inspiring to see a young man be so touched and motivated that he strove to make a difference!
