I love AC/DC. I grew up on their music from a very young age. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and Back in Black were two of the first cassette tapes my older brother ever gave me.
And now, after learning about this story, I gotta say that I love AC/DC even more than I used to, especially singer Brian Johnson.
Johnson and his wife Brenda donated a property in Florida to All-Star Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps provide safe spaces for foster children. The organization then sold the property the Johnsons donated for net proceeds of $335,000, which will go a long way toward helping the organization that is “dedicated to transforming foster care through innovation, science, and compassion.”
The All-Star Children’s Foundation is based in Sarasota and is now close to completing its “Campus of Caring” that includes a center for trauma-focused clinical services for kids who have been through extremely difficult times.
The campus will also have six homes spread across five acres that will provide a nurturing and caring environment for children up to the age of 18 who have suffered neglect and abuse. The campus will also allow siblings to grow up together.
The All Star Campus is getting so close! The landscape is going in! All the roofs are on and the cottages are getting cabinets and flooring. We are so excited to be welcoming children in to our homes soon!
Brian Johnson said,
“They have brought a community together in a common cause to help children who have grown up in unpredictable households where violence and neglect may have occurred.
There is no greater good than what they have achieved in building the All-Star Children’s Foundation campus, and Brenda and I are honored to be a part of it.”
Here’s a video about their amazing donation!
Great work from a great family! We salute you!
