Dear friends and family,
Many of you know how important Adaptive Design Association is to me and my family. As both a sister of a recipient of their amazing work and a future OT, I know the impact a simple piece of equipment can have on a child. Everyday the staff and volunteers at ADA help change the lives of so many children with disabilities, regardless of their financial abilities. I am helping fundraise this year specifically in commemoration of the 10 year anniversary of the death of my little brother Max A"H. Please consider donating to this amazning organization to allow them to continue to impact the lives of so many children all around the world in memory of my brother Max.
People with disabilities comprise the largest and most diverse “minority” worldwide. Approximately 1 in 5 people in the U.S. have a disability* and the older we get, the greater the chance we will become ill or disabled. Whatever the diagnosis, it will be limitation and a lack of adaptation that will become our biggest challenge. Together, we can get the right adaptations at the right time to chidren in NY and all over the world.
- $500 will benefit our Never Say No policy so that a child with disabilities can receive the right adaptation to learn, play, and grow.
- $1,000 will support our Made to Learn Program and the education of one of our learners so that they can go on to supply hundreds of people with disabilities the adaptations they need to succeed—and exceed limitations.
- $1,500 will encourage the growth of Adaptive Design Centers all over the world to meet the needs of children in any community.
Join our participating teams or help them reach their fundraising goals to support our efforts in fabricating, educating, and replicating.
