Yeah, sure, if you say so.
What did those charities overhear? That you don't give enough?

<quoted text>I was waiting for some a##hole to come on here and have something negative to say about Jr.'s gift. The same is said about Tony when he gives his money away, that it's for publicity and a write-off. Some people are so damn unhappy with their lives that they always find a negative in the good those drivers do. Get a life, you idiot.

When you get smart enough to run a charity for needy kids and give them what other kids have while maintaining a low overhead, why don't you start one if you know so much. Obviously, you are speaking out of ignorance. It would serve you well to do some research before you open your mouth the next time.

I have a grandaughter with cystic fibrous you do not know what a boost it is for a very sick child to get a chance at something fun they may never get. If the people who say awful things about NASCAR drivers giving their time and money to causes should get down on their hands and knees and thank God they do not have a sick child in their family. If you knew how much my grandaughter puts up with her terrible disease you would be a shamed of yourself. So if these kids get a chance to forget their sickness for a short time and have fun be happy for them When NASCAR drivers give to charities it brings attention to these deadly childhood diseases. Thank God for Jr., Tony, and all the others who give. Tony is giving to the Children's hospitals this year at Eldora. Think before you speak about sick children you should keep your thoughts to yourself you hurt people who have sick kids in their family.

Good job Junebug..

I wonder what is going to happen to these camps now that Obamacare was passed before anyone voting for it could read it...since they would all get FIRED from any job they would have anywhere else... we need to fire them, all those who just do what the cool kid wants them to do... those guys need to go sit on the sidelines and become aware off the damage they have done to our nation with their votes...
God bless the drivers who participate in their charities, the charity people and the kids and their families..

Big deal it's not his his money, Jr makes about 40 million a year for doing nothing, he should give at least 10 million out of his own pocket.
May be this is why the drivers have a need to help terminally ill children.

It is nobody elses business how Jr makes money... he is an entertainer at least, like the losers in Hollywood.. Jr can't help it that people buy his new tshirts in droves... but at least these drivers do good things with their foundations.
At least Jr does not steal other people's money to use for his agenda..
