Congratulations are in order for Jimmy Wayne, who has been selected as a semi-finalist in the Energizer Keep Going Hall of Fame for his Project Meet Me Halfway! Jimmy has done his part, raising awareness for the plight of kids who suffer and often become homeless when they ‘age out’ of the foster care system…and now we can help Jimmy “Keep Going” by voting for him to win this prestigious award!
After suffering through an abusive childhood, living in foster care and being homeless for a short time, Jimmy Wayne wanted to make a difference in the lives of those going through what he dealt with as a child. Jimmy started Project Meet Me Halfway to raise awareness of the fact that too many youth, especially those that are aging out of the foster care system, are facing challenging circumstances, similar to the ones he faced. With his unstoppable spirit, Jimmy even walked across America to raise awareness for the cause.
Now that Jimmy has become a semi-finalist, he needs our votes on Facebook to win!
