Eddie Johnson and Friends

We had a great time attending the Eddie Johnson (Retired NBA player and the host of SiriusXMNBARadio) and Friends event to help benefit the Phoenix-based Helping Hands for Single Moms. Many single moms struggle to get by with job, education, child care and so much more. Helping Hands offers grants to aid moms in pursuing an education which will allow them to get a good paying career (for example) in nursing. We’ve had the opportunity to meet many of the moms who came from almost overwhelming struggles to now standing on their own and supporting their children.

Eddie Johnson was also one of 7 children who’s mom had to raise them on her own. Each year Helping Hands holds events which attract many celebrity athletes like Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals and more.

Glad to see Eddie is excited to try out his #FloatnThang™ – Each unit that is sold, a portion of the proceeds will be able to support organizations like Helping Hands, HISKids.info and PartnersInAction.org program. Helping children is rewarding and seeing the joy in a child’s eyes is priceless. Each device has the message imprinted on the bottom: “Always Watch Children Around Water”

  • The FloatnThang™ is the latest innovation in flotation. From personal flotation to a booster seat, beverage holder, temporary boat bumper and more. Lots of photos under #FloatnThang – Get yours today!    July special running now on website www.FloatnThang.com.
