Thomas Richards Charity

Thomas Richards Charity

A beloved member of our family, Matt Moscato, died on June 12, 2005. His untimely passing inspired the creation and name of our charity, “Thomas Richards,” from the once owned clothing line by Matt “Thomas” Moscato, and business partner, Brant “Richard” Wiwi. We believe using his business name for our charity is an honorable way to celebrate Matt Moscato’s life. The charity was created to help people in six degrees of separation. The goal of our charity events is not only to raise money for a worthy cause, but also to bring people together, in the spirit of enjoying life’s purpose. In hopes of being inclusive, we strive to keep these events affordable and entertaining with 100% Volunteer Support. Consequently, we enrich our lives and hopefully inspire others to do the same as Matt did for us.

Thank you for all your contributions, especially your constant smile and great willingness to help! 🥳 Happy Birthday 🎉

Thank you for making our team stronger! HBD McKenzie 🎁!!

🍀🌟 Today, we're shining a ☘️ on one of our incredible volunteers and Treasurer, Kathie Diekman! 🌟🍀

Kathie's journey with Thomas Richards Charity began with a simple act of kindness - volunteering to sell T-shirts at the Matt Moscato Charity Golf event in 2012. Little did she know, this would mark the beginning of her inspiring journey with us.

From Co-Secretary to her current role as Treasurer, Kathie has been an integral part of our team, bringing dedication and passion to everything she does. Her commitment to our cause stems from a profound love for both the people involved and those we've had the privilege to help along the way.

As a mom, Kathie has witnessed firsthand the impact of our charity on her own family. Seeing her son and daughter participate in the golf outing, and now having her daughter join the planning committee, fills her heart with pride and joy.

One of Kathie's fondest memories with TRC is a testament to the power of teamwork and compassion. Instead of simply hiring a service, TRC Volunteers came together themselves to help a disabled Veteran with yard work. The impact of this effort was not only visible in the transformed yard but also in the smile on the Veteran's face.

Kathie, your unwavering dedication and kindness inspire us all. Thank you for being a driving force behind our mission. Together, we're making a difference, one act of kindness at a time. 💙🍀

🌟 Celebrating Tim Ciotti - Visionary CEO and President of Thomas Richards Charity 🌟

Today, we honor Tim Ciotti, the driving force behind Thomas Richards Charity (TRC), and a true entrepreneur with a heart of gold. Tim's journey with TRC began in 2005 when he sought a meaningful way to honor our dear friend, Matt Moscato. His innate ability to bring people together and turn a simple idea into a profound charitable organization is a testament to his leadership and passion.

In Tim's own words, the inspiration for TRC came from a desire to honor Matt's memory in a way that reflected his multifaceted personality. A golf outing, an event that showcased Matt's lack of skill but abundant joy, became the foundation for TRC's inception in 2008. From there, the charity evolved, officially becoming a 501(c)(3) non-profit on March 21, 2011.

Tim's dedication to TRC goes beyond just a charitable venture; it's a personal mission to keep Matt Moscato alive within him and spread love to others through Matt's legacy. Since day one, Tim has been an integral part of TRC, and his commitment to the cause is unwavering.

What does Tim love about being part of TRC? It's the community that has grown around TRC, fueled by sponsors who share a genuine love for Matt and the community. Tim finds joy in helping people, and through TRC, he has been able to make a significant impact on numerous lives.

One of Tim's favorite memories involves the diverse ways TRC has touched lives - from physically building a handicap bathroom for a 9-year-old boy to purchasing a service dog for a little girl who lost her leg. Tim's involvement in cleaning up a veteran's yard with the TRC Board, supporting special needs children by sending them to Camp Barnabas, and numerous other acts of kindness all hold a special place in his heart.

Thank you, Tim, for your visionary leadership, unwavering commitment, and the love you pour into TRC. Your ability to turn a golf outing into a force for good is truly inspiring. 🏌️‍♂️❤️

Jim & Carol Need Your Assistance

Help the Thomas Richards Charity help Jim and Carol.
In July 2022, Jim was hospitalized for three weeks with diabetic shock. He was also diagnosed with a Urinary disorder. Jim can no longer go to the bathroom on his own, so he must use catheters up to five times a day to empty his bladder.
In November, Carol was taken to the ER. She was misdiagnosed with arthritis in her back and a week later went back for a bacterial infection that had spread to her spine and through her bloodstream. She had to have surgery on her spine to remove the infection. She was hospitalized for six weeks and is now under at-home nurse care and receives physical and occupational therapy.
Jim was also hospitalized over this period due to his anxiety and being overwhelmed by all that was happening with his beloved wife.
Jim is 76 years old and has depression, anxiety, diabetes, and a mood disorder. He is also seeing a neurologist for his tremors, which make it difficult for him to do the simplest task like holding a cup of coffee. At this time, he cannot operate a vehicle. Carol is 78 and legally blind, along with her other medical issues. She can no longer do stairs and has a wheelchair that doesn’t even go through their bedroom doors.
Their mobile home has been falling apart. They had a few workers come out to fix leaks and electrical problems, and they did a horrible job, so the problems never got fixed. The shower is rotted through the subflooring. They had major leaks and turned off the water for weeks until it could be fixed. The appliances are also in dangerous shape.
Their medical bills are stacking up. Jim and Carol need help. They must pay their medical bills and get their home back to a livable condition. Please help Thomas Richards Charity help these two get back on track.
100% of your donation goes to support Jim and Carol Lyons during this difficult time and is tax deductible.

Help Caitlin and Patrick Adopt a Child

Life doesn’t always go as planned. For my husband Patrick and me, this has never been more true. What started as trying to get pregnant left us with two surgeries and the dream of ever getting pregnant diminished. My name is Caitlin Lyons and I was 26 when I was diagnosed with a rare form of Ovarian Cancer called Serous Borderline Ovarian Tumors – Stage 3B.

After over a year of trying and tests coming back normal, we decided to give Clomid, a hormone inducer, a shot to get pregnant. Two rounds of Clomid later, I was having terrible pains that turned out to be four cysts on my ovaries. While my OB/GYN wasn’t super concerned, she wanted to keep an eye on them with ultrasounds every month. By September, I was down to two persistent cysts that were getting bigger. My doctor explained to us that she believed what I was dealing with was a bad case of Endometriosis. She laid out our options, and we decided surgery was the best choice to clear it up, make the pain go away, and hopefully increase our chances of getting pregnant naturally. Before we could schedule it though, she had to test my CA125 hormone, a marker for inflammation and cancer.

The Thursday after my appointment, I finally got the call that my CA125 test came back at 160 U/mL, almost 5 times the average level is 0-35 U/mL, too high to perform the surgery. Therefore, I was referred to a gynecologic oncologist at Northside Atlanta. In the span of just a few days, surgery went from optional to absolutely necessary.

We scheduled the surgery for October 14th. After the oncologist confirmed the OB/GYN’s findings, we walked out of the office scared and overwhelmed, but felt this would get us on the right path to not only heal my pain, but to also start our family.

When I woke up from surgery, Patrick told me things didn’t exactly go as planned. The cysts turned out to be Serous Borderline Ovarian Tumors. My right ovary was fully encased in a tumor and had to be removed. They were able to remove just the tumor from my left ovary, but it still remained covered in disease, along with all of my other reproductive organs. He also found countless smaller tumors sitting on top of my abdomen. He removed many of them, but there were too many and too small for him to be able to remove all of them. Needless to say, we were both in shock and nervous about what was to come next.

During my check-up a week later, we got the news we were the most afraid of – I was going to have to get a full hysterectomy in order to clear the remaining tumors and to stop the disease from spreading throughout my body. We were heart broken that at 26, I had cancer and our dream of getting pregnant was about to be gone forever.

On February 10, 2020, at 27 years old, I had my surgery – a full hysterectomy and they removed as many of the tumors as possible.  I am now on a hormone therapy treatment called Letrozole for a year and I get my CA125 drawn every 6 weeks. After two tests, my numbers have dropped from 160 to 10 U/mL.       During COVID-19, I was rushed to the hospital with what the doctors believed was a pelvic abscess that was at the beginning stages of turning sepsis. With pain killers and high doses of antibiotics, the abscess cleared up.  Dealing with this and being in the hospital during COVID was the scariest night of my life.

While we grieved the dream of having our own children, we also look forward to me being pain free and dreaming about other ways we could grow our family. Throwing out my prenatal vitamins and pregnancy tests was one of the hardest, but most healing things I’ve done. It helped me process my new life and accept that our future has changed.

Patrick and I are now Cancer Free and have a different outlook on life. We also have the opportunity to look forward to what is to come: bringing a baby into our family through adoption! We are so excited to open our arms and hearts to the journey of adoption! However, we can’t do it alone. The average cost of adoption can be upwards of $40,000. Your donation will go directly towards any fees and bills that we acquire as we go through the adoption process. Anything you give to help us bring home our Little Lyons Cub is appreciated more than we can convey!

Please join all of us and Thomas Richards Charity in contributing to this rewarding cause; 100% goes to help with an adoption for the Lyons Family. From the bottom of our hearts and everything we have, thank you so much for all of your support! Our love always, Caitlin and Patrick Lyons

Connor’s Corner

Connor Yamarino is a young thirteen-year-old, who has been sick since the day he came into this world. He spent the first six days of life in the hospital, where he was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia. Biliary Atresia is a condition found in infants, in which the bile ducts outside and inside the liver are scarred and blocked. Because bile is not able to flow into the intestine, it builds up in the liver and causes damage. This damage leads to more scarring, loss of liver tissue and function, as well as, cirrhosis of the liver. Connor’s liver disease is progressing faster than anticipated, as his tissue is currently considered to be severely damaged. Thus, they are making preparations to put him on the liver transplant list.

The Yamarino family is typically the family known to be reaching out to help others who are in need. Due to the unforeseen expenses of traveling, treatments, diet, surgeries and various other expenses, Connor’s family is now in need. It is now our opportunity, as a community, to support this family by giving them financial peace of mind. We want nothing more than to help ease the financial burden for this family, so that they will be able focus all of their energy on keeping Connor as healthy as possible now, during and after his surgery.

Please join all of us and Thomas Richards Charity in contributing to this rewarding cause. 100% of all proceeds will go to the Yamarino family. We are grateful and humbled by any and all donations.

About Thomas Richards Charity
Thomas Richards Charity is  a 501(c)3 non-profit charity.

A beloved member of our family, Matt Moscato, died on June 12, 2005. His untimely passing inspired the creation and name of our charity, “Thomas Richards,” from the once owned clothing line by Matt “Thomas” Moscato, and business partner, Brant “Richard” Wiwi. We believe using his business name for our charity is an honorable way to celebrate Matt’s life. The charity was created to help people in six degrees of separation. Six degrees of separation (also referred to as the “Human Web”) refers to the idea that everyone is at most six steps away from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in six steps or less. Matt enjoyed life and took advantage of everything that life had to offer. Therefore, when Matt passed we were reminded how valuable life is and that we need to enjoy it more with the people around us. The goal of our charity events is not only to raise money for a worthy cause, but also to bring people together, in the spirit of enjoying life’s purpose. In hopes of being inclusive, we strive to keep these free casino slots events affordable and entertaining. Consequently, we enrich our lives and hopefully inspire others to do the same as Matt did for us.
