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 He embodies GiGi’s mission to change outdated perceptions of Down syndrome, break down barriers to participation and foster inclusion for all.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.”

Addy’s Disneyland Journey

Addy’s Disneyland Journey

Addy’s Disneyland Journey

In summer 2018 Bret Michaels met an amazing little girl from Idaho named Addy Berria along with her Mother, Ashley and family backstage during a meet & greet. During their conversation Bret was inspired by Addy’s spirit and personality, so much that he offered to cover the associated costs sending Addy and her family to Disneyland.

Through his Life Rocks Foundation, Bret’s commitment by giving back to communities in which he performs runs deep. Meeting genuine people like Addy and her family are truly at the core of what Life Rocks is all about.

After weeks of planning between Michaels’ team and Ashley, including a “Don’t Do What Bretty Rocks Does” charity video seen here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BoPoQCKBbhw/, arranging flights for the 5 family members, hotel, car service etc. the family was set to head west from Idaho to California in search of Mickey Mouse and an awesome time.

Below are photos sent from Ashley from their trip. From airport to airplane, from hotel to Disneyland and back on behalf of Bret and all at MEGI/Life Rocks Foundation, we are glad you had a great time Addy!

Bret Michaels’ Life Rocks Foundation Collaborates With Team Carly Rocks Sending 15 Children To Diabetes Summer Camp

Bret Michaels’ Life Rocks Foundation Collaborates With Team Carly Rocks Sending 15 Children To Diabetes Summer Camp

On special occasions Bret Michaels’ Life Foundation collaborates with other charitable organizations to benefit individuals, families and causes. While backstage at a recent tour stop Mitch and Carly, a father and daughter diabetic pair met fellow diabetic Bret Michaels. Bret and Mitch discussed bringing their foundations together for this instance which resulted in funding to send 15 children to diabetes summer camp at Camp Ho Mita Koda located in Ohio.

As a lifelong Type 1 juvenile diabetic since the age of 6, Bret formed his Life Rocks Foundation out of necessity and a desire to give back to children and communities. In addition, Bret’s Life Rocks Foundation also works with organizations benefiting veterans, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and many others with instant impact and real results rather than taking a knee. Bret is about really doing something about it.

Each year Bret sends children to diabetes summer camp which focuses on learning how to manage diabetes while having fun and developing new friendships. Bret remains a focal point in helping to raise diabetes awareness. “Diabetes is the reason I fought so hard to win Celebrity Apprentice” said Michaels referencing his victory on the highest rated season of the show’s existence. “Collaborating Life Rocks with Team Carly Rocks to send 15 children to camp is an awesome day.”

In addition, Michaels works closely with the American Diabetes Association and JDRF having served as keynote speaker at numerous gala events which helped to raise millions of dollars for the cause.

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.

Bret –

We would like to thank you so much for sending Hunter to Camp Planet D. He had a blast and we are so grateful that he had the opportunity to experience such an amazing camp with people who live with the same disease he battles daily. He had a blast entertaining the camp with his back flips! He is ready to go back next year and is planning on becoming a counselor when he is too old to go.

Thanks so much.

Tanya (Hunter’s mom)
