Anniversary Fundraiser Planning Committee Meeting
We will be having our first planning meeting for our 4th Anniversary Fundraiser. We are excited for another year serving children with developmental disabilities. In order to do all the things we have planned we need help funding. Our Anniversary Fundraiser allows us to celebrate all we accomplished during the year and raise more money for the upcoming year. If you are interested in donating your time, money or skills for the fundraiser or throughout the year please email us.
Vending at Metaphysical Market
We Vend the items our mothers in Uganda make. This helps pays for our bills here in Washington but also in Uganda. We also bring awareness to the things we are doing in Washington and Uganda. We also encourage others to help with our survey. This month we will be in Arlington Washington to sell the beautiful items that were made with love. Check us out!!!
Rare Disease Day
There are about 300 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with a rare disease. About half of these people are children. There are over 7,000 rare diseases. It is always a struggle to find doctors, resources and community when you live with a rare disease. With Awareness we can help to bridge the gap for those who live with a rare disease and the help and resources they need to thrive.
Youtube Video Post: Children of color with developmental disabilities
We will be posting on our Youtube Channel about children of color with IDD and how that affects them and their families.
Random Acts of Kindness Day
For this day we encourage you to spread kindness through random acts. Doing something kind for others benefits both you as the person doing the kind act or the person receiving the kind act. Let's make the world a better place for each other and do something kind!
International Childhood Cancer Day
Children who have childhood cancer are much more prone to having developmental difficulties as they grow. More awareness and research needs to be done so that we can help these children thrive after treatment.
