Day 29 Good Everyday HollyRod Foundation

At it again today! The dollar was given to the HollyRod Foundation. If you didn’t know, The Holly Rod Foundation is spear headed by Rodney and Holly Robinson-Peete.

The HollyRod Foundation was founded in 1997 by NFL quarterback Rodney Peete and actress Holly Robinson Peete in honor of Holly’s father, Matthew T. Robinson, Jr., who was diagnosed with PD in 1982 at the young age of 46. Although Mr. Robinson was forced to retire from a successful career in entertainment, he had the emotional and financial support of Holly, Rodney and the rest of his family. Other patients, however, are not so fortunate. While caring for Mr. Robinson, Holly and Rodney often encountered patients who were alone, could not afford care or did not have access to expensive medications, treatments and services.

I first found about the Holly Rod Foundation during this past season of Celebrity Apprentice. Holly’s  focus was on bring awareness and resources to families with Autistic children. For more information about Holly Rod check out their site.

    Thanks Randy! Even though this blog has my name, I've always wanted it to mean more than me. Everybody has their goals for their domain name. But so many limit (IMO) the conversation to themselves. My hope is to inspire people to think of others.
