The Good Life Foundation was founded by Dustin Poirier and his wife Jolie to raise funds and raise awareness for those in need. It works on a variety of projects and initiatives, mainly aimed at helping people who are struggling financially or who have serious health problems.
Poirier had this to say about the idea behind his platform:
“I’m a fighter. That’s what I do. Now I want to fight well for those who can’t.”
It all started with the former UFC interim lightweight champion auctioning off his fighting gear and inviting other fighters to do the same. The Good Fight Foundation also collects donations both materially and financially.
Most recently, The Good Fight Foundation, thanks to the generosity of donors, was able to assemble 50 car seats and 20 packages for the Lady of Lourdes Women & Children’s Hospital in Lafayette, Louisiana.
The foundation also donated $10,000 to Journey to Adulthood’s youth boxing gym in Lafayette, LA. The gym’s program is to provide underprivileged youths with boxing training, with the aim of keeping them off the streets.
