BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF JACLYN INC
FOJ matches a child in need of love, support and friendship with a college or high school sports team based on geographic basis. Through a due diligence process, the foundation screens for the best match based on the child and family's needs and the team, coach and athletic director's commitment to our foundation's goals.
After the adoption is completed, the child becomes an extension of the team where a unique bond is formed between the team members, the child and the family. The benefit to all is a personal loving support network that creates a unique bond. The result of the FOJ adoption is the child feels involved and each individual team member gains insight into the value of helping others. Additionally, FOJ has seen this relationship forges a closer bond among team members magnifying the importance of a team operating as a single unit.
During the entire month, One Meaning will be donating 10% of all sales
to Friends of Jaclyn, as well as featuring additional fundraising
opportunities for FOJ, starting here: One Meaning will donate an
additional $5 for every purchase of our “I Love You” Bracelets,
which have a message of love and tell the world you have a story to share.
The Foundation's Beginning
The Foundation was inspired by Jaclyn Murphy, who was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor, in March 2004 when she was nine-years-old. Jaclyn's strength and courage, relentless spirit, and joy for life are an inspiration to those who know her. Jaclyn's wish is "for all the children in the hospitals to be healed."
It is their goal for Jaclyn to be able to continue to touch people with her smile, her kind heart, her hope and faith that some day there will be a cure! In the meantime, it is their hope that through Jaclyn's example, they can help to improve the lives of other children and families dealing with pediatric cancer.
The Friends of Jaclyn foundation has created an unprecedented network of families, teams, coaches, athletic directors, supporters, volunteers and financial supporters. They thank you for your support.
