A Charity Close to Joe's Heart Western Wishes: http://www.westernwishes.org Western Wishes grants wishes to children faced with adversity and who love the western way of life. Since 1994, this award-winning program has had the pleasure of turning dreams into lasting memories for these inspiring kids. The common thread we find with most Western Wishes kids is that they possess a fierce competitive spirit. Focusing on their goals, rather than their affliction, gives them a positive outlook on life. As such, they become ambassadors of hope to others who are about to enter the long road to recovery or who are preparing to face the end of an already too-short life. Highlighting these incredible kids and making them honored guests at rodeos, horse shows and country music concerts is our objective. It is the mission of Western Wishes to reward the fighting spirit of these courageous kids and share the compelling stories to the multitudes. Western Wishes has designed a program to put these kids in the spotlight. From Cheyenne to Fort Worth, from the PBR World Finals to the National Finals Rodeo, the program grows and offers kids the opportunity to reach for the stars and have their wishes come true. World champion cowboys and country singers who have hearts bigger than their names have brightened the lives of countless kids who go home with memories that last a lifetime.
Another Very Important Charity www.toughenoughtowearpink.com Each year at the NFR, Joe sells t-shirts with 100% of the proceeds dedicated to breast cancer research. NFR 2006 Update: While pink is not typically associated with the “Super Bowl” of professional rodeo, cowboys, cowgirls, rodeo clowns, announcers, flag girls and a sell-out audience was decked out in pink to show support – many proudly wearing the special-edition TETWP shirt from Wrangler. The results of this year’s efforts were revealed and history was made as Joe assisted Karl Stressman of Wrangler in presenting a check for $1 million to TETWP founder Terry Wheatley on behalf of the breast cancer research community. Joe initiated the TETWP campaign a number of years back to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer.
