I remember watching her face, awestruck as she stared at her phone. She was in disbelief. I asked her if something was wrong. "I can't believe what I'm seeing," was her slow response. She turned her phone around, and I watched the video on the screen. I saw her 3-year-old son taking his first steps without a walker, without braces, without any assistance. Tears filled both of our eyes.
This moment happened in the halls of Special Kids. A moment that doctors told this young mom would probably never happen. But it did, and it was a miracle. One that supporters like you helped make possible. You can help even more children experience this kind of miracle.
Happening now, through May 11th, is a Special Kids fundraiser on CrowdRise to provide scholarships for families of children with special needs who cannot afford our regular fees but are in need of our services, such as speech, occupational, physical, recreation, and feeding therapies and/or nursing care.
Your support has already given Special Kids a chance to compete for a grant of up to $100,000 from A Community Thrives Foundation. Since we have raised a minimum of $6,000 through this fundraiser, we will qualify for a chance to receive a grant ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. We will use any grant money we receive to complete renovations which will help us provide an additional 15,912 therapy sessions annually to children with special needs in our community.
If we are one of the top two fundraisers in our category at the end of the campaign on May 11, 2018 at 11:59 a.m. Eastern Time, we will win an additional $25,000!!
Please help us continue to give hope to families in need. Thank you in advance for your support!
