The Lucky Ducklings (Ducklings) is a youth-led movement whose mission is to alleviate the suffering of those experiencing homelessness throughout San Diego as a part of the Lucky Duck Foundation.
Our Lucky Ducklings, youth-led initiative is committed to all areas of homelessness, we have placed a special emphasis on supporting homeless youth.
The Ducklings have opportunities to learn about homelessness, volunteer and raise money to support Lucky Duck programs. Each Lucky Ducklings organization can create unique programs designed to make a difference
Here’s how you can share your luck.
Consider making a donation to LDF’s general fund. Every dollar donated (up to $1.5 million per year), is matched by LDF co-founders and will be used to fund and activate high-impact programs throughout San Diego City and County that are best-in-class, fact-based, cost-effective and show results.
Faisal was a 2nd generation Lucky Duck. Faisal embodied the spirit of sharing your luck. And like a lot of things he did, Faisal brought his friends along for the ride. “Be like Faisal” was a common mantra.
Faisal had a love for baseball, luxury cars and watches, the Villanova Wildcats, and the Lucky Duck Foundation, which was his favorite nonprofit organization. He learned about the Lucky Duck Foundation through his father Abe and mother Zarina, who are a longtime and generous supporters.
To honor and perpetuate Faisal’s legacy, we created the “Faisal Badani Lucky Ducklings Impact Initiative,” where beginning in 2022 and every year thereafter, the Lucky Duck Foundation will set aside at least $25,000 to fund a difference-making program or programs, which will be selected in part by the Lucky Ducklings.
