THE STORY:

Hello. I hope this message finds you well. I and my family (Bobby, Tish and Bob) are once again raising funds for the non-profit organization, Family Resource, Information and Education Network for Down Syndrome (FRIENDS). FRIENDS is comprised of volunteers who take no pay and all of the monies raised go back into the Down syndrome community. FRIENDS sponsor an annual teachers conference that give educators new techniques to help students with Down syndrome (DS) be successful in school. They also provide family grants, scholarships, support scientific and medical research efforts and partner with National Down syndrome organizations to ensure that the future for individuals with Down syndrome is bright. FRIENDS has been busy helping to get valuable legislation, to benefit individuals with disabilities, passed in Maryland. Last year I got to meet the Governor of Maryland when FRIENDS helped to get a law passed that ensures new and expectant parents, of children with Down syndrome, get accurate and up-to-date information about DS. FRIENDS also helped to establish and maintain the now annual 5K Race-4-Respect in Washington DC to raise DS awareness. Currently FRIENDS is participating with the Maryland Governor's ABLE Act Task Force which is developing recommendations for Maryland on how to legislate how individuals with disabilities will be able to have more money in their possession, without losing valuable services to which they are entitled. As you know, it takes resources to accomplish all this. I hope you can help us be successful in helping individuals with Down syndrome in every way we can. Best wishes for a bright future, Nikki
