If you’ve seen “The Blind Side,” you know the impact that one person can have on the life of a child.

Millions of people from every walk of life and from every part of the country flocked to theaters to see the motion picture, “The Blind Side.” They were moved by the heartfelt story of one family who made the simple yet powerful decision to do the right thing for a young man needing an opportunity to fulfill and express his God-given talents.

We have received cards, letters and messages from people who want to help provide opportunities for other kids who may not otherwise have them. By way of response, the Tuohy family has established the Making It Happen Foundation.

Mission Statement
To live and share our commitment to faith, family and others while opening doors to promote awareness, provide hope, and improve the standard of living and quality of life for all the children fighting to survive in the invisible cracks of our society.


The Tuohy Family would like to invite you to join them in Making It Happen for the deserving, but under served youth. Your contributions to the Making It Happen Foundation are 100% tax deductible and would mean the creation of invaluable opportunities for kids that are considered valueless by society and that are so close to falling through the cracks.

The Making it Happen Foundation is a charitable organization, tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your donation allows our Foundation to offer hope, love and opportunity to people who have none. Our Family truly believes that all individuals have value and there are no unwanted children just unfound families. Please know that every dollar taken in is used directly for changing a life and we will circle back and let you know how your hard earned dollars were spent. Thank You for wanting to help us make a difference!

Here’s to Turning Around and Making that Difference!

Be Blessed,

The Tuohy Family
