Anyone can play Chess! Through Chess Peace, my goal is to provide free chess education and resources for anyone with little knowledge of the game of Chess or limited access to chess supplies. Not only do I believe that Chess brings peace within everyone individually, but I also believe Chess peacefully connects local and global communities in a positive manner. 


Fundraising efforts help raise funds to purchase necessities and complete chess boards and pieces for donation to schools, orphanages, foster care camps, hospitals, and any facilities in need of chess supplies. 


I hope you will join me on this journey to bridge the gap and to spread "Chess Peace" -- one chess piece at a time.

Every Chess master was once a beginner.

my MIssion


I believe that Chess can help anyone. Playing Chess can improve memory and concentration and help you develop the mental grit and confidence to problem solve in all areas of your life -- including daily tasks, school work, tests, sports, and even video games! 

My goal is to enable people of all ages and backgrounds who do not have the access or the funds for chess lessons and chess supplies to have the opportunity to learn this life-changing game. It has changed my life and I know it can change yours.

I hope you will join me on this journey to spread "Chess Peace"--- one chess piece at a time.
