Carroll Shelby Foundation

WorldCause Foundation is pleased to announce its most recent presentation of a $10,000.00 grant to further the efforts of the Carroll Shelby Foundation.

According to their official website, following years of heart-related difficulties, which culminated in a successful heart transplant, Mr. Shelby created the Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation in October 1991.

The organization is dedicated to providing assistance for acute coronary and kidney care for young people who share many of the same afflictions. Furthermore, in 2009 the Foundation took another beat and expanded its reach and became the Carroll Shelby Foundation helping kids from their first heartbeat through their education years.

Since its inception the foundation has helped numerous children undergo major coronary surgeries all while helping charities and children worldwide in fundraising efforts, brining attention to heart problems, and providing seed monies to launch successful healthcare programs in regards to these treatments. In addition, the foundation also provides grants to organizations conducting research in the fields of coronary and organ transplant management. also states that Shelby, who waited years before receiving his own heart transplant, was keenly aware of the difficulties and expense involved in heart surgery and the often-lengthy process to locate a suitable donor organ. He created the Foundation because he realized that many needy children would have their lives cut short without some type of financial assistance.

WorldCause Foundation is honored to have been a part of this successful 2013 Mustang Dream Giveaway Initiative, as well as the opportunity to provide this grant to such a worthy organization. In addition to giving thanks to the Carroll Shelby Foundation for their support, WorldCause Foundation would also like to extend its sincere gratitude to each individual who pledged a donation in the 2013 Mustang Dream Giveaway.

Through our continued efforts, both WorldCause and the Carroll Shelby Foundation can continue to provide much needed outreach to those in need, creating a positive, lasting impact on each person's life. For more information on the great work carried out by the Carroll Shelby Foundation, please visit
