Texans for a Cause

"It started with a tweet."

History

During the summer of 2013 two die-hard Houston Texans fans connected on twitter with an idea that soon turned into more than they could have imagined. Co-Founders Shanan Malone and Hollie Fulsom were often tweeting back and forth about the Texans when Shanan approached Hollie with an idea. The idea was to put together a fundraising effort that would bring together fans and raise money for a community non-profit.  Within days, the "SuperFan” calendar benefiting the Justin J. Watt Foundation was born.  Soon after, the photographer,  the sponsors and "SuperFans" were all lining up to support our cause.  In November of 2013 the “SuperFan” calendars were printed and ready to grace the walls of 1,000 supporters.  Just one month later, CharitaBulls was able to make a$20,000 donation to the Justin J. Watt Foundation.

Our initial check donation was for $15,000 with another $5,000 coming in days after we wrote the check!

Neither of the ladies expected the initial project would turn into what is today; however, after getting into the process, it was clear the path they were on.  They filed for a 501(c)(3) and CharitaBulls was formed. 

CharitaBulls is currently made up of the co-founders, Shanan Malone and Hollie Fulsom, along with Board Members, Lisa Hospedales, and Cheeto Musquiz. Together we are making a positive impact in the Houston Community by supporting and bringing awareness to local nonprofits. In 2015, CharitaBulls created the Task Force of dedicated community volunteers to help take the mission even farther and reach more people.

Now with over 25 Task Force Members and our Leadership team we are volunteering more than ever and creating new ways to continue to contribute to our community.
