CJs Thumbs Up Foundation

Raise money for CJs Thumbs Up Foundation

5f469b0a6070b.jpgOur Mission: To provide assistance to families of children with chronic and life threatening illnesses. 

Our Vision: Since our founding in 2010, we have seen CJ’s Thumbs Up Foundation grow in amazing ways.  When we set out to start this organization, our mission was clear.  We wanted to honor Charlotte Jennie’s memory by serving families in their time of need.  We do this through meals and financial assistance.  We are serving many needs of the Richmond, VA community and have exceeded our goals every year of our existence.

When your child is sick, it is all you can think about. Your focus is only on helping your son or daughter get well. Extended stays in the hospital are stressful for everyone. The last thing you usually think about is a healthy meal.

The goal of CJ’s Meal Fairies is to provide healthy meals to family members while their child is hospitalized. 

In partnership with Connor’s Heroes Foundation, we provide weekly meals to families of pediatric patients at UVA Children's Hospital in Charlottesville on Wednesdays and Children’s Hospital of Richmond on Thursdays. We also provide meals at Ronald McDonald House of Richmond a few days a month. 

The average cost of one day's worth of meals for our Lunch Bunch Program is $300. If you have a business that would like to sponsor or donate meals, either in-kind or at cost, please Contact Us.
