Gabriel Schillinger was a freshman in college when he started an organization called For Darfur Inc. which is a non-for-profit organization that raises awareness and money to help the people suffering in Darfur. Schillinger was able to raise over $1,000,000 for Darfur by throwing a Kanye West concert in 2008 and was recognized as the number 1 donor to Doctors Without Borders efforts in Darfur in 2007 & 2008. Time Magazine named Gabriel Schillinger “Kid With A Conscience” in 2008 and he has been profiled in the Palm Beach County Medical Society, The New York Times, Time Magazine, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, and The Miami Herald. He has also gone on to co-found “Decade Worldwide, a multi-dimensional entertainment management company”. In 2008 For Darfur Inc. had 200 members from age 13 to 19. This group of hardworking teens saw something terrible going on in the world and vowed to make a change through music and media.
