I am honored to know Bryan Nash, the founder* of the Eddie Nash Foundation. I recently met with him to talk about his foundation and the work that he does and is done with the kids. It’s amazing! It takes a special person to be able to see and deal with the pain and suffering on a daily basis. Of course, that is nothing compared to what the kids go through.
I believe that things happen for a reason. About 3 weeks ago I decided that I wanted to do something for a charity. I am picky though. I want to make sure that whatever is done will get to the necessary people and I wanted to find a way to tie it in with my business. I had some ideas but nothing that I thought would really take off. Then, I met with Bryan. I asked him what I could do. He said, “Chapsticks. Kids love to have their own Chapsticks.”
Easy enough. Something we all have and definitely take for granted, these kids treat like gold. I immediately knew how I was going to make this happen. I am very excited to do this and can’t wait to present Bryan with a big (hopefully!) basket of Chapsticks!
Their Mission Statement:
