Thank You... 


Over the past 5 years, the Jimmie Johnson Foundation has contributed over $5 million to schools and organizations across the United States.  That would not be possible without you!  We wanted to start sharing some of the thanks we receive...to let you know that you are making a difference.


We recently received a lovely note from a marine whose son had received a care package from the foundation. 


"JT was so excited [when his package arrived] that he exclaimed "I am so lucky!"  Think about that.  My child with multiple rows of stitches on his head and abdomen exclaimed "I am so lucky!"  My wife had to leave the room with eyes welled-up in tears; happy tears.  "Thank you" is a pitiful expression to utter in response to the impact you had on my boy and my family today, but it is all I can say: Thank you! You made a young boy very happy today; and he needed it."


Every month in 2012 we are going to share similar notes of gratitude with you.  We hope you enjoy!
