You could help us win $100,000 to build a new respite home for critically ill children!

We are asking for your help with a very exciting project that has the potential to greatly expand Believe In Tomorrow’s pediatric respite housing services.

The NASCAR Foundation’s Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award honors a dedicated NASCAR fan who has positively impacted the lives of children through volunteerism. Believe In Tomorrow and our super volunteer, Carl Dakes (aka Carl the Painter) have made the list of four finalists this year! Carl is a painter by profession, who for the past 18 years has volunteered his talents and many thousands of volunteer hours to paint each of our pediatric hospital and respite houses. Carl’s work has brightened our facilities and the lives of all the families who stay with us.

The grand prize for the organization with the most fan votes is $100,000 and a multiyear relationship with NASCAR. This relationship would include spreading the word about the Believe In Tomorrow mission throughout the NASCAR organization. To make this happen we really need your help. Please help us win by voting every day for Carl the Painter (and Believe In Tomorrow) beginning October 21 and through November 19 at
