SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - February 07, 2014) - Children are our future. They are the key to advancements in medicine, technology, space exploration, a cleaner environment, world peace and a better economy. With that in mind, MyJobChart.com Founder and CEO Gregg Murset has announced the fastest growing online job chart for kids has added the Forever Young Foundation to its list of premier charities in hopes of helping kids reach their full potential.
"We are proud to be partnering with Steve Young and his remarkable foundation to help kids reach their full potential as they learn early in life the importance of establishing a positive work ethic," said Murset. "When a child thrives, overcomes certain barriers or surpasses a goal, then we all win. I hope that our nearly 600,000 members will support this foundation and help children fulfill their dreams."
Last year, more than 5 million kids under the age of 17 were admitted into U.S. hospitals and more than 16 million American kids live in poverty and struggle in various stages in life. The Forever Young Foundation, founded in 1993 by NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback Steve Young, is focused on passing on hope and resources for the development, strength, and education of children. The Foundation serves children facing significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges by providing them with academic, athletic, and therapeutic opportunities currently unavailable to them.
Having a strong work ethic will help any child as they strive to realize their dreams, whether those dreams are to become a doctor, lawyer, teacher, policeman or Super Bowl MVP," noted Young. "Help your child reach their full potential by laying the foundation in the basic principles they will use the rest of their lives -- responsibility, accountability and hard work."
