Last night’s benefit party was a success, with the money raised last night and donations online we’ve raised over $2,100 for Livestrong! That’s amazing! I’m so thankful to the bands that played, all the wonderful people that came and danced, the photobooth, and the viaduct. All in all a great night! If you would like to make donation to LiveSTRONG in honor of the event, please visit: http://www.crowdrise.com/lp-feb Now onto today’s give, which goes to the Friendship Circle.
Friendship Circle is an organization that creates friendship in the lives of children and adults with special needs. Their unique method pairs individuals who have special needs with local teen volunteers. Through these friendships the teens grow into socially responsible citizens and the children and adults gain confidence through community inclusion. The Ferber Kaufman LifeTown gives special needs individuals the chance to learn life skills in a realistic setting, thus improving their social, physical and cognitive skills.
In addition to helping individuals with special needs and their families, Friendship Circle touches people struggling with addiction, isolation and related crises. At the Daniel B. Sobel Friendship House, participants receive guidance in the form of recovery programs, referrals and supporting networks.
Amount Donated: $10
