$10,000 Goal Reached!
Susan Naylor Sellers, Chairman of San Antonio, TX based The Will Smith Foundation, announced a matching grant of up to $10,000 for new donors to Charlie’s Guys. Susan believes the mission and efforts of Charlie’s Guys, which supports bereaved children and also siblings of seriously ill children, aligns closely with the mission of The Will Smith Foundation. “We are pleased to be able to support an organization that brings joy and happiness into the lives of children during very difficult circumstances” said Susan. “The strategy of matching funds from new donors will help with operational support, and will also contribute to the long term sustainability of Charlie’s Guys through increased awareness.” The Will Smith Foundation, named after Susan’s son Will, tragically killed an auto accident at the age of eight, provides positive life experiences to children and their families in need.
