Thanks to AC/DC singer Brian Johnson and his wife Brenda, a lot of kids in Florida will have a much better holiday season.
Mr. and Mrs. Johnson donated some Sarasota, FL, property to the All-Star Children Foundation, who were able to turn that donation into $335,000.
The Foundation is in the process of completing its Sarasota-based “Campus of Caring,” which includes a state-of-the-art center for trauma-focused clinical services, according to the Sarasota Times. The campus will feature six foster family homes that provide children who have experienced abuse or neglect with a family-style home environment. Siblings will be kept together, and parents and caregivers will also be offered a range of innovative services.
Johnson and his wife live in Sarasota, which the UK native says "just feels like home." Ever the charitable rocker, Johnson partnered with Sarasota Memorial Hospital back in 2014 to help launch the Brian Johnson Music Therapy Center for pediatric patients.
"Brenda and I wanted to give something back to this town that we call home," said at the time. "Bringing the joy of music to children could not make me happier. Now let’s rock.”
