What is RightStart4Kids?


We’re a non-profit organization that focuses on initiatives that help children globally start life out right from the womb. Only when children’s bodies grow healthy, do we have the opportunity to grow their minds. With the help of our donors’ kind hearts, we’re able to fulfill our mission ABC focused on body and mind.


  • Avail financial support for life-saving medical services to either save or improve health and wellness of kids, their parents and guardians.
  • Bridge educational opportunities and wellness programs to international kids.
  • Community-building by organizing volunteers in the USA to help pay it forward to help any child anywhere in need.

Help Support Our Projects


On Thursday, July 27th, at one of the finest Northshore dining experiences at one of the finest Chicago dining experiences in the zen water garden at the home of Dirk Tussing & Tom Nguyen, we rolled up our sleeves to continue our annual corporate social responsibility initiative.

2015 Chicagoland CLO/CTO Fundraising Dinner

The Chicagoland Corporate Learning Leaders are welcome to join too as they give to local & global communities for investing in our future. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and mingle with senior executives running learning and talent development groups from top Chicagoland companies – while supporting a good cause.

Tom grew up in the Mekong Delta of South Vietnam before moving to the USA where he completed his M.D. degree and now resides on the Far Northwest side of Chicago. Throughout the evening, our guests will be exposed to a variety of Vietnamese culture, traditions, and charity RS4K projects in Vietnam.
