Austin, TX, January 03, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- TJA ended 2012 with a new holiday tradition, making a family Christmas wish list a reality. With the recent rise in generosity inspired by the original Secret Santa, an un-named woman in Michigan who paid off a family’s lay away plan at Kmart, TJA wanted to find away to give back to their hometown. Last week a TJA pilot visited an Austin based Walmart and brought Christmas early to families.
TJA chose 82 families on Santa’s list and paid off their lay away balances. The total pay off was just under $10,400. “Our company is based on helping others, and having as much impact as possible with each person we come in contact with. It only took a little to help out a large number of people in a big way,” said Farrell Foley, TJA’s CEO. The company’s founder, Grant Jacobson, was there to see the reaction of one of the family members. “It was a magical moment to see the face on the first person who came to make a lay away payment and realized that Santa had come early this year,” Mr. Jacobson said.
The year ahead will be a busy one for the Austin based aviation company. In addition to working with their current partners, TJA will be expanding their efforts and looking to partner with additional organizations that may need their services.
