|The June Jones Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life for needy families of children with life-threatening illnesses as well as other charitable causes.
The emotional, physical, and spiritual impact a seriously ill child has on a family cannot be measured. The June Jones Foundation is dedicated to lifting their spirits by providing grants, programming and support.
With the help of many of my friends, I am really excited about the opportunity to give back to as many worthwhile groups as possible. About five years ago, I was asked to help raise money for one of the most worthy groups of people I had ever seen, group called HUGS.
HUGS is a group that is dedicated in providing support and enhancing the quality of life for Hawaii's seriously ill children and their families. My heart was so touched by this organization it motivated me to help them and try to help many others. I formed the June Jones Foundation with this in mind.
I cannot thank my many friends enough who have agreed to step forward with with me in helping these children and their families. Life is about giving and I feel so blessed to have been put in this position with my life to attempt to make a difference in the lives of these families. To all of you I say thank you for helping me attempt to make a difference.
