Printable Version: January 2012 Prayer Letter
Incase you don’t know anything about Baby DJ, here is some info:The Baby DJ program began over 18 years ago when its founder “Johnny Magic” was inspired to provide assistance to families of economic disadvantage in the Central Florida area. As the host of Central Florida’s top rated morning radio show, Johnny has had the opportunity to spend a great deal of time working throughout the community and witnessed firsthand the struggle that many families experienced in providing their children with necessities, especially during the holiday season.
From that moment of inspiration, Johnny began to dedicate his time and resources to developing a program that would make it possible for impoverished families to provide a wonderful holiday experience for their children. In the years since, Baby DJ has worked in collaboration with local churches and nonprofits organizations to fulfill this mission. Baby DJ volunteers have spent countless hours collecting and distributing resources to assist families in need, and the organization has since expanded to include several other charitable efforts that take place throughout the year.
Past YearsIn past years, Baby DJ has worked in collaboration with other charitable organizations, lending our marketing resources, community connections, and sweat equity to make each campaign with which we have partnered a success. As we have grown, we have realized that our Baby DJ program has become more than just a campaign that operates in collaboration with other nonprofits. During the 2009 holiday season the number of requests for participation in the Christmas program was more than substantial, and a decision was made that this would be the last holiday season in which we operated under an established entity. It became apparent that Baby DJ had a life of its own, and that recruitment of a board of directors and incorporation as a distinct entity was necessary. Thus, in July of 2010 Baby DJ, Inc. was established as a Florida nonprofit corporation.
