Freeman, Robert

Robert Freeman ’81, a Los Altos High School Teacher, will be honored with the Palo Alto Kiwanis Club's first Angel Award later this month for his work with One Dollar for Life, the nonprofit organization he founded.

The Angel Award was created to celebrate an individual or organization who mentors and impacts children in the community and throughout the world.

Freeman founded the nonprofit because he was frustrated with "teenagers' sense of impotence in being able to make a difference in the world." So, he made a model by which anyone, by donating a dollar, could participate and change the world -- provided everyone did so.

Through One Dollar, Freeman is working to get children in developing countries complete access to food, education and health care by providing transportation to schools, educated teachers and necessary nutrients. In five years, One Dollar has raised approximately $209,000 from middle and high school students and has completed numerous projects including sending 250 tennis shoes to students in Malawi and buying 20 piglets to save 20 Nepalese girls from being sold into slavery.
