C.J. Wilson is the founder of C.J. Wilson's Children’s Charities. C.J. met five-year-old Micah Champagne at Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth, TX. Micah has severe hemophilia, and was being treated that day for a bacterial infection. “His face just lit up when he saw me and the Rangers there,” Wilson said. “I never realized somebody in the hospital could be so positive. He was such a happy kid and I gave him a big hug.” C.J. had always wanted to be involved in the community, and meeting Micah that day inspired him to focus on children.
The 501(C)(3) (Tax Id # 27-1301635) raises funds, awareness and most importantly youth participation in community service and charitable giving that will directly benefit children and their families affected by chronic, life-threatening illnesses or dealing with social or financial challenges. CJWCC focuses on inspiring local children, teens and young adults to be involved in charity at an early age, making it entertaining and personally rewarding.
