The Special Kids annual Double Challenge is underway and will go through December 1st.
For this year’s Double Challenge, Special Kids wants to connect investors on a deeper level in order to achieve Special Kids’ mission. Special Kids wants investors to create their own challenge! Special Kids is encouraging investors to make their own commitment to Special Kids and ask friends, family and colleagues to give the same amount. If participants are unsure who to challenge, they should not be concerned. A group of generous anonymous investors have promised to match the first $31,000 given.
Special Kids current caseload of 780 children is more than has ever been served, which is why Special Kids has set a goal of $286,000 to be raised through the Double Challenge this year.
The theme for this year’s Double Challenge is “See His Vision. Double the Hope.” based on Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see,” and focuses on how individuals can step in and double the hope for children’s therapies and the overall work of Special Kids.
Special Kids was founded on the pillar that no child would be turned away due to a family's inability to pay for services. In 2016, the Double Challenge raised $143,000 to help these children and their families.
“We have been so humbled to see how God has worked through our investors to continue the exponential growth and support by our investors. This year, we would like to double what was raised through the Challenge last year, for a total of $286,000 to help ensure that we are able to serve every child that needs our services. The first $31,000 will automatically be matched. However, our goal is bigger than ever so we want to encourage you to get your family and friends involved. Ask them to match your gift, too! It’s all about coming together to do more for the kids,” states Noel Deal, Lead Investor Relations Specialist. “The money raised through the campaign will help provide life-changing therapy and nursing services to families who would not otherwise be able to afford them.”
