It is with much excitement, that I share with you the opportunity to help bring GiGi’s Playhouse to San Diego and support JT and others like JT with Down Syndrome. JT and others will strive to reach their full potential with customized, no cost programs. GiGi’s Playhouse helps individuals with Down Syndrome (prenatal to senior citizens), their families, and the community.
JT is a fun loving active 8 year old who happens to have Down Syndrome. He enjoys most things a typical 8 year old boy does. He loves books, crashing cars, digging in the dirt, playing with dinosaurs, throwing balls, and shooting hoops. He also complains as every 8 year old does. He complains about doing his chores, homework, taking a shower, and going to bed. JT has many similarities as your average 8 year old boy; however, he has many challenges that most boys his age do not. JT has difficulty running, jumping, riding a bike, speaking, writing, reading, math, and expressing himself to strangers. He wears braces to help him balance and walk. He uses an iPad with a language program to help him communicate with others. JT receives speech, occupational, and physical therapies through the public school system, which is limited. The schools can only do so much with the time and resources available. Although, JT has challenges he enjoys life. His smile in infectious and his laugh is priceless. You just can’t help but love him. He just needs the extra time, practice, and patience to achieve greatness. Don’t you think he deserves the same opportunities as others?
JT and others like JT deserve the opportunity to overcome these challenges. With your help we can bring this place to San Diego. A place that will have all the therapies they need like one on one tutoring for academic achievement, occupational, and so much more, at no cost.
GiGi’s Playhouse is solely ran on donations and volunteers. Help us help others achieve all they can by donating today. Let’s bring GiGi’s Playhouse to San Diego.
