About Giving the Unexpected, INC. – The Presidents and Vice Presidents
inspiration for the establishment of GTU was locating and reuniting with their biological family after being adopted 27 years ago. After their first trip in 27 years, in April 2012, they were able to see the conditions of their country of origin. This is when they realized that a lot is taken for granted here in the US, and that they would like to help, in any way possible, to improve the lives of people even if it is one person at a time. The mission of GTU is to provide unexpected opportunities of personal, individual, and family development to support the residents of the Dominican Republic.
