  • Florence, SC (1888PressRelease) May 05, 2011 - On Saturday night, thanks to the generosity of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Brian Keselowski and his open sponsorship status, a not-for-profit organization will benefit from thousands of attending fans and millions of television viewers.

    In what might be considered a reverse sponsorship, VOICE Today will enjoy the visibility of its logo placement, donated by K-Automotive Motorsports, on the No. 92 Dodge, among the 43 cars at Darlington Raceway on May 7. The donated sponsorship is worth approximately $40,000.

    VOICE Today's mission aims to break the silence and cycle of child sexual abuse through awareness, prevention and healing resources. According to VOICE Today, one in four girls and one in six boys are abused sexually by their 18th birthday. And 90 percent of the time, the abuser is someone the child knows, loves and trusts. VOICE Today estimates only one in 10 abused children will tell someone that they are a victim of child sexual abuse.

    "I'm happy to use my NASCAR platform to shed light on the dark secret of child sexual abuse and give exposure to this worthy organization that works to keep our children safe," Keselowski said. "Child sexual abuse is not limited to any community or socioeconomic class. It's an unspoken issue facing thousands of children every day."

    VOICE Today founder Angela Williams is a survivor of child sexual abuse. Upon her recovery, she became a voice of healing for survivors, as well as a voice of protection for children and adults. Williams is also the author of the memoir "From Sorrows To Sapphires" available from, which gives a detailed story about her abuse, struggle and recovery experience.

    "We are humbly grateful to receive such generosity from Brian and the Keselowski family racing team as they become a huge supporter of advocating against abuse and stand with us to fight this horrific evil," Williams said.

    John Burman, president of J&R Communications, facilitated the donation and donated the production cost of the vehicle graphics. For sponsorship inquiries, reach Burman at 404-717-3711.
