On Jeffry Schneider’s Twitter account you can read tweets about the local events of Austin, TX or about some of the charities he supports. Many of the organizations he donates his time and money to help local children and provide them with education, relief from abuse or neglect and counseling in times of need. He also supports charitable causes that help to feed the homeless and that provide clean drinking water to third world countries whose population would otherwise suffer from disease, sickness and possibly death. Many people in the world have Jeffry to thank for their well-being, but he would modestly say that he is only doing his part.
