  JOHN LYNCH OF THUMBSUP4KINDNESS AND THE LUNCH WITH LYNCH FOUNDATION

  (Mr. VAN DREW asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. VAN DREW. Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor an outstanding member of 
New Jersey.
  John Lynch has made it his life's work to give to the youth of South 
Jersey, including creating learning experiences in schools and helping 
children with life-threatening illnesses.
  He established the Lunch With Lynch Foundation to help facilitate 
educational opportunities and learning experiences for the children of 
Wildwoods, New Jersey. As well, he established a ThumbsUp4Kindness 
organization to change the world one random act of kindness at a time.
  For his outstanding community service, Lynch received the 
Presidential Community Service Lifetime Achievement Award after 30 
years and 4,000 hours of serving his community.
  Thank you, Mr. Lynch. Thank you for what you do for our community. 
South Jersey is honored to have you.
  Let's all take a page out of John's book and try to be a little 
kinder to each other in this House, in this country, and in this world.
