Jen Gage, GiGi’s Playhouse Phoenix Founder Calls Bret Michaels A Class Act & Generous

“Bret is truly a class act! Generous, Accepting and KIND. Letting the kids join him onstage for the entire set and taking the time to meet and talk with each one of them was above and beyond anyone’s expectations. Bret is truly compassionate about helping others. I so appreciate how involved he was with our participants and families.  They were grinning from ear to ear and still are. Truly magical and the whole room felt it! He embodies GiGi’s mission to change outdated perceptions of Down syndrome, break down barriers to participation and foster inclusion for all. GiGi’s Phoenix is so grateful to Bret for his huge heart and loving spirit and amazing energy. In just 15 minutes Bret created memories that changed the attending children’s lives and created memories that will last forever for everyone who attended.”

Bret Michaels Contributes To Operation Welcome Home Benefiting Military Heroes

Bret Michaels Contributes To Operation Welcome Home Benefiting Military Heroes

As the son of a veteran, Bret Michaels continues his longstanding commitment in support of our nation’s brave service men/women and first responders. Each night during shows on his record breaking “Party Starts Now” tour Michaels honors local heroes by bringing them onstage to pay tribute. In addition through his Life Rocks Foundation, each night Bret also makes monetary contributions to local charities across the country. While performing to a record crowd in Morgantown, West Virginia, Michaels met Tim Wolfe from “Operation Welcome Home”. Tim’s organization helps place veterans with jobs and assists with other needs as they return home. On this night, Bret donated a portion of proceeds from a live auction of his custom cowboy hat and stage worn shirt taking place from the stage and at the merchandise booth.

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Cole Thanks Bret For Sending Him To Diabetes Summer Camp!

Bret,

I wanted to send this email to you as a huge thank you for sponsoring my son Cole with his first experience at diabetes camp. Not just first experience, he has never even spent a night away from home. Every night I still get up and test his sugar a least 2 times a night because he doesn’t feel his night time lows. This was a big step for both of us!  

I dropped him off yesterday with tears and pick him up Friday. I know he will have the time of his life thanks to you Bret. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving him this opportunity! 

All the best and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Cole and Chrissi

Bret,

Thank you so much for sending Cora to American Diabetes Association Camp this year. She has been living with Type 1 Diabetes since she was 4 years old. She is a very strong, caring and extremely responsible young lady who manages her diabetes daily and lives life to the fullest. Here is a picture of her with a “Thank You Bret” sign she made. Thanks to the Life Rocks Foundation for all you do and thanks to Bret Michaels for being such a wonderful inspiration and role model for those living with Type 1! This is a year she’ll never forget!

TeamBretMichaels.com Feel Good Friday Story

With all the stories in the news as of late that are of sadness and tragedy, we thought we’d end the week on a high note with an uplifting, positive story of our friend Johnny Kocisko and his mother Linda who brought pizzas to victims and workers affected by recent storms and tornadoes this past week.

Great job Johnny and Linda!
