Help us raise money to complete James Eagle Project and a James Fuller Memorial Wall and create a fund helping gifted kids overcome bullying

On November 29, 2014, James Fuller was a few minutes from home when his bicycle collided with a Ford pickup and died while crossing the intersection of Wiles Road and Rock Island Road.

James was a Life Scout with Troop 497, South Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America and hoped to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. His Eagle Project was the last thing he needed to complete to obtain the rank of Eagle Scout. His service project toward that goal was for Tomorrow's Rainbow, a nonprofit organization on a Coconut Creek horse farm that supports bereaved children and teenagers.

He had just emailed the group his design for portable, temporary corrals where 11 miniature animals — horses, donkeys and ponies — would be kept during hurricanes. Typically there is a plaque placed on the project that is completed with the Eagle Scouts Name and Date on it. Due to the nature of this project, there is no place to put a plaque.

Tomorrow's Rainbow has also approved the placement of a James Fuller Memorial Wall which will display the Names, Projects and Dates of all Eagle Projects completed on the property.

Finally, with the remainder of the money we would like to create a James Fuller Memorial Fund to be used by American Mensa to go towards helping gifted kids overcome the affects of bullying.  This is something James went through and it was his passion to start helping other gifted kids get through this as well.
