"Giving back is very important to me and my entire family. We are in the position to help those less fortunate and want to do everything we can to make someone else's life a little better."
- Jim Mora
OUR MISSION: The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation supports children in need primarily in three target areas: low socio-economic backgrounds, mentally and/or physically challenged children and children at risk. We strive to empower children through our outreach programs as well as to lend support to children’s charities through monetary grants and partnerships. Our goal is to help children improve their lives by building and instilling confidence; encouraging health, wellness and safety; fostering learning opportunities; and using the sport of football as a springboard to talk about life and life lessons.
We would love to count on your participation and support at these upcoming events!
Girls Night Out is a fabulous night of fun and frolic. Small bites, cool drinks and a night out with the girlfriends makes our annual Girls Night Out in Los Angeles an unforgettable evening – all in support of our Annual Holiday Shops. Over $9,000 was raised in 2014 for our Holiday Shops program, which pops up in hospitals around the country to provide hospital-bound children a chance to shop for gifts for their loved ones. Reserve your ticket now for this fun sell-out event on November 13th, 2015!
The Bus 2 The Bowl program was launched in 2014 and aligns with the Foundation's mission of supporting and enriching the lives of children in need and at risk. To date, over 1800 youth, ages 7-13, have joined the Count On Me team for UCLA football games at the Rose Bowl. Upcoming 2015 dates for this event include 10/3, 10/22, 10/ 31 and 11/14. Learn more about how you can get your kids on the bus, sponsor a bus or volunteer for this extraordinary program. Give kids the chance to experience the thrill of "going to the game" at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena.
The Count On Me Holiday Shop empowers children in long-term care who are unable leave the hospital during holiday seasons to "go shopping" for gifts for their loved ones. Instead, the Holiday Shop brings the shopping to them. Young patients are able to select gifts for their parents or guardians from a great selection of items displayed in a festive, colorful "pop-up style" gift shop. This event takes place every December and May. Stay tuned for ways to donate, volunteer and help support this very special program that empowers our most precious children.
