BENEFITING: Project Independence
ORGANIZER: Project Independence
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
“Project Independence’s mission is to promote civil rights for people with developmental disabilities through services which expand independence and choice. People with disabilities have a right to fully participate in the community and that participation both enlightens and strengthens the community. Having a job, friends, and home of your own are all intrinsic to a healthy, happy life.”
The reason why I am raising money for this organization and am running to represent them in May is because I 100% agree with and support their mission. One of my greatest role models was my Uncle John, he had Down Syndrome and was enrolled in Castro Valley Adult and Career Education, and it was the one thing that made him as happy as his family. In school he was involved in cooking, sewing, gardening and would attend dances and bowling nights; it was a marvelous program.
I feel that everyone should get a shot at a happy and fulfilled life and I love that this organization wants to give it to people.
Please support me and this organization by donating anything at all and/or spreading the word.
