Daniel Jorge Correia Abreu, "Danny" was born in the Cape Verde Islands on August 25, 1982 to Ernesto Abreu and Catarina Mendes Correia. The island of Fogo was Danny's home as he attended elementary and high school. He later moved to Santiago to further his education in human resources. Family and friends remember his contagious smile, bright personality and courage to dream big dreams. After three months in the police academy, Danny made his home in the Capital of Santiago where he joined the National Police force in 2005 and served faithfully for three years. The position soon granted him a visa to the United States. An opportunity many wished for and few enjoyed. In that opportunity he saw a chance, a means to better provide for his family. September of 2008, Danny immigrated to the United States. His arrival to the new land gave birth to a new dream. He set his sights on joining the US Military and later serving the community as a police officer in the City of Boston. Even though he was enjoying a new life in an exciting new world, Danny's family back home remained his highest priority. "I am the only one they got" he would say as he worked diligently to afford a better life for his mother, brother and sister. From a very young age he learned one of life's key principals: "nothing is handed out to you, through hard work & determination it is earned". He developed a strong work ethic. Danny saw each obstacle as a learning experience. He walked through every challenge with perseverance. No distance was too far and no challenge was too great. In the face of uncertainty or lack, he continued to press on towards his dream. This fundraiser is to honor Danny’s dream and raise money for his mother. Additionally, with God’s divine help, assist her in investing the capital so that she can provide for herself and her family in the future. The goal is $10,000. Please help us honor this dream. You can donate online or in person by contacting me for more information. There is 5% fee for online donation so if you are in Boston, Brockton, or RI please contact. Thank you!
