Support the Inspiring Children Foundation's '#NotAloneChallenge' by Casting Your Vote for a People's Choice Webby Award

by Peter Madden on

The Inspiring Children Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization that transforms lives through physical, social, emotional, and mental health, has been nominated for a People's Voice Webby Award.

Singer-songwriter Jewel and her Inspiring Children Foundation started the #NotAloneChallenge to raise awareness around mental health and to offer behavioral health tools online to mental health ‘deserts’ in underserved communities. 

With support from countless celebrities and influencers, the #NotAloneChallenge was started to create a community that lends support to those in need of mental health support and guidance.

Inspiring Children has been very active in the pickleball community and was part of the Pickle Bowl event in Las Vegas in February during Super Bowl week. The event helped raise funds for the Inspiring Children Foundation. The three-day event featured clinics, amateur events and a celebrity tournament, won by former NFL great and MLP part owner Larry Fitzgerald and his partner, pro Patrick Kawka. The Foundation also offers pickleball clinics.
