Yori was at a friend's house playing in the pool when he quietly slipped below the surface. Participation in formal swim lessons can reduce the likelihood of childhood drowning death by 88%. Donations by Women Who Care Seattle Eastside enabled 50+ low-income youth to take swimming lessons. Chezik Tsunoda started the charity "No More Under" in honor of Yori.
Along with helping many local homeless individuals, a portion of the group’s donation provided a homeless man a safe place to stay that was close to his mom’s hospice facility. He was able to spend the last few weeks of her life by her side rather than being forced from one outdoor space to another during this difficult time. It gave him hope that people cared and that somehow his life mattered.
