The Faith Motivated Foundation was founded by former Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans, and current Pittsburgh Steelers Linebacker Steven Johnson in May of 2014. Since then we have done nothing but immerse ourselves in the communities of Denver, CO, Nashville, TN, Philadelphia, PA, San Francisco, CA, Lawrence, KS, and Dallas, TX through organizations such as the Salvation Army, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Club, and Rebuilding Together. During Thanksgiving of 2014, we worked with the Salvation Army to prepare meals for families for the upcoming holiday season. We also helped the Salvation Army, at one of their family living facilities, to create a healthy learning environment by donating supplies and developing a floor plan in their newly established tutoring center. Other activities include visiting local hospitals, participating in Boys and Girls club events, delivering meals to the homeless, sharing faith with families around the country, and speaking and volunteering at various camps. We have also extended our outreach to other countries of the world by partnering with the Compassion project, whose mission is to partner with local churches to provide children in highly impoverished areas with health screenings, hygiene and nutrition education, nutritious meals, medical check-ups, vaccines, school tuition, and sports. In addition, other provisions include vocational training, Bible teaching, educational field trips, team building activities, community service opportunities, and leadership training.
We are currently sponsoring two children, a young boy in Kenya, named Isaiah, and a young girl in India, named Jigyansa. Through this, we are committed to building relationships through letter-writing. So far, our largest event has been our paintball tournament, which was held in May of 2015 in Denver, CO. We opened the event to all members of the community in hopes to create an exciting environment for fans to interact with pros! We had about 300 supporters participate and raised over $3000. Through these events and many more, our founder, Steven Johnson, was awarded Top Community Activist in the city of Denver, CO over the course of three years while playing with the Denver Broncos. We look forward to creating even more relationships with local and worldly organizations and working to achieve unity and success throughout various communities.
