A Closer Look at Ben Roethlisberger’s Charity Efforts

Ben Roethlisberger is a man who crushed records in every sport he played during high school only to go on and become a phenomenon in college and a legendary figure in the NFL. Even so, what this god of football is most proud of is his charity work. That’s because he has spent his time working with organizations that save lives daily. Here is a closer look at that charity work and an examination of why Big Ben is one of the best humanity has to offer.

The NeoLight Project

One thing that was on Ben Roethlisberger’s mind was the fact that jaundice puts a lot of babies right back into the hospital after they are born. This is a tragedy and one that we shouldn’t be dealing with in the modern age. To remedy this, he threw his support behind the NeoLight Project. This company is dedicated to making products and methods of treatment for babies with jaundice to save lives and keep them out of the hospital. Thanks to Big Ben’s help, they have been very successful in their mission.

The Light of Life

Speaking of light, Ben Roethlisberger is also involved with the Light of Life Rescue Mission. As the name implies, it is an organization that helps the needy in Pittsburg. One project they ran called DIFFERENT allowed Ben and recording artist Micah Tyler to feel those in need by selling special t-shirts. For every shirt sold a free meal was donated. As a result, the program was a massive success.

Solving Family Issues

Family is a touchy subject for many people since things don’t always work out. The good news is that Ben Roethlisberger has created an organization to help people create stronger family bonds. Known as the Roethlisberger Family Foundation, this organization has helped many families come together in love and understanding. Refer to this page to learn more.
