CHARLOTTE, NC – We were blown away by all the support we received from you in our “Hope for More” race to win $20,000 from the Jimmie Johnson Foundation/Samsung Helmet of Hope Program.

We are so thankful to already have been awarded $10,000 from the Jimmie Johnson Foundation as a result of nominations from our loyal fans, and having our logo appear on Jimmie Johnson’s helmet at the Pepsi 400 is icing on the birthday cake! Be sure to tune in on October 10 at 3 p.m. on ESPN to watch Jimmie championing our cause on his Helmet of Hope.

Our heartfelt congratulations go out to the two winning charities, Cookies for Kids Cancer and the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation. Cookies for Kids Cancer raises funding and awareness for pediatric cancer research, and the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation raises funding and awareness for Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which is the leading genetic killer of infants and young children. These are deserving and timely wins, as September is National Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month and Gwendolyn Strong celebrated her third birthday on October 4, just days after this big announcement was made. We offer our congratulations and thanks for all that these amazing charities do.

Birthday Blessings is honored to have been selected to participate in this nationwide program, and we thank each and every one of our loyal supporters for voting. With your support, our uplifting programs–offering educational and enrichment support and providing critical-care needs–continue to impact thousands of homeless children and families each year. Together, we are making a positive difference by showing each child in need that our community loves them and cares for their well being.

The enthusiasm and generous spirits of our supporters are at the heart of everything we do at Birthday Blessings. Thank you for championing our cause!
