All money raised by Usos Foundation goes into the foundation to offer scholarships to at-risk youth and to cover the facility rent and operating expenses. None of the board members or administration is paid, all are volunteers.
In addition to learning top-of-the-line skills in the sport of wrestling and self defense, the program will provide the youth with various traits and skills in other areas which include: self-esteem, the mind-body-spirit connection, public relations, experience in filming, photography, editing, journalism, script writing, sales, marketing, and other entrepreneurial skills. All of which are skills that can be used in the business world, since many of these kids will not have the option of attending college.
Dear Lynn & Pops, About 7yrs ago, in the month of February, I was working for a company that was doing nothing for me. I was always in trouble for something stupid. I had never liked what was going on until you came along and offered me a position with you. I'm really happy you both did. Look what they both did for me! You kept me off the streets, out of trouble, and kept me away from all chemicals that do harm to people. Plus you all allowed me to train with you to be what I always dreamed of. And that is: "a bodacious referee." Because of you both: Afa & Lynn, and the training center, I became successful in what I love, and that is being a referee. If it weren't for the two of you, I would not be living my dream in any promotion on the east coast. Thank you Mom & Pops. I'll will always love you both.
Love you both always,
Your Son & "Bodacious Referee"
(Editor's Note: Shortly after writing his letter of thanks, Johnny Moyer passed away on August 20, 2003. He was hit by a car on his way home from work and died from the injuries. Johnny was nominated for referee of the year, 2003 and had a bright future with the sport that he loved so much. His untimely death has touched Afa and Lynn Anoa'i so deeply as they thought of him as a son. He will surely be missed by the Usos and Anoa'i family)
