Named the celebrity spokesperson for the newly formed Heather Trew Foundation, Timmons plans a series of public service announcements for radio and television to get the word out about organ donation.

"Jeff is excited to be part of the Heather Trew Foundation," said Ruben Malaret, Jeff's Manager and President of New York-based Celebrity PR. "He is going to reach out to his fan base and youth all over the world to speak about the importance of becoming an organ donor. More importantly, he will also encourage them to share the decision with their family and friends to make sure their wishes are granted at the time of need."

The Heather Trew Foundation was created by Dwight and Judy Trew the parents of Heather Trew, to educate the youth of the world, about the importance of being an organ donor. Heather Trew was an organ donation recipient early in her life due to eating undercooked meat at a picnic. While she unfortunately lost her battle against e-coli, her legacy lives on encouraging others to donate organs for those in need. Meanwhile, the foundation has also dedicated itself to urging Congress to adopt stricter policies in making sure beef is better checked for harmful bacteria such as e-coli.

Timmons is working on recording several public service announcements for the Heather Trew Foundation that will soon be running on television and radio stations worldwide. He is also in the process of producing his second solo CD, currently planned for release in the summer of this year.
