Jamie’s Joy Memorial Fund started in May 2002 after a car accident took the life of 5-year-old Jamie Mychael Morgan Bratton-McNeeley. As a tribute to Jamie, family and friends came together to form a memorial fund at the San Diego Foundation to honor his legacy. Although his life was cut short, Jamie’s contagious spirit continues through his legacy of: love, joy, peace and connection. This year we are raising funds for mentorship programs, which are dedicated to helping at-risk teens in San Diego complete high school and encourage their continued education into college or trade schools.
The District Attorney’s Youth Advisory Board This effort builds leadership in youth and has them spread the message about making positive choices while encouraging education and volunteerism. The panel was created to inform the District Attorney about youth issues affecting the community. Students from Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch, Lincoln, and Morse High schools participate. Each group is working on a campaign aimed at peers to address issues at their school and in their community. More information is available at www.choose4or40.com
The Somali-Bantu Association This organization provides tutoring and soccer activities for refugee youth and advocates for access to healthcare, professional and other resources to help families in transition. More information is available at: www.sbaoa.org Jamie's Joy is staffed by volunteers so all funds raised go to non-profits organizations For more on these programs and all of this year's recipients including the others listed below visit:
www.jamiesjoy.org ADDITIONAL GRANTS GIVEN EACH YEAR TO: Save a Child Foundation, as well community programs that help heal the bereaved such as Rady’s Children Hospital- HOPE program, The Jenna Druck Foundation &The Compassionate Friends.
You give to Jamie; he continues to give to the world. Because his work isn’t done and his love still exists
