Well here it is 4 years after Wonderful Wayne had this idea and we're having such great success and response to our event that we're thrilled to do it again.
In the 4 years since Wonderful Wayne’s idea was put in motion by a group of fellow truckers, over $37,000 has been distributed to 59 needy trucking families in the US and Canada. Several past recipients have joined the group to return the favor from their trucking brothers and sisters.

We'll have an ornament for every year, this year the Christmas Group Fundraiser is sponsoring the ornament. If you or your company would like to sponsor next year's ornament please inquire at our Customer Service . The picture really doesn't do it justice, these ornaments are brilliantly bright. They'd look great on your tree AND hanging in your truck, so buy two. :)
This fund created to help needy trucking families is donation driven. There are many ways you can support our group and our mission to help families in need during Christmas time. These donations are earmarked for the Christmas Club ONLY and will not be used in our year long mission of "Getting them safe, Getting them fed and Getting them home.
Please consider a donation, even if it's only a dollar, it will make some trucker's family VERY HAPPY and appreciative. After your donation you'll be forwarded to a page where you can listen to phone calls of previous families that our group has helped.
