THE STORY:

 

If you know me at all, you would know that am not the "I’m going to run a marathon" type of guy. But, when the representative from the Friendship Circle told me about the difference  FC is making in the lives of tens of thousands of children with Special Needs - I knew I would rise to the challenge to somehow pull off this feat - if not for anything but those precious children.

Please join me by donating (and spreading the word) - we can all make a whole world of difference if we each put in our little contribution!

Love,

Pinny

Here is something that Friendship Circle International wrote:

Today, at least 1 in 12 children has some form of special needs. It may be cerebral palsy or autism. It may be learning disabilities or ADHD.

The common thread between most disabilities is the fact that they make children seem different to their peers. It may be a wheelchair, the inability for a child to verbalize his thoughts, or simply struggling to read or write that can cause a chasm between a child and the rest of the children at school, at summer camp or at the local youth group.

Even more painful than the stares, the impatience and the difficulties in communicating is the phone that doesn’t ring, the empty afternoons longing for companionship, a playmate or just someone to talk to

Team Friendship is running to raise awareness and money for Friendship Circle, which is an international organization that pairs teenager volunteers and children with special needs to help the children cultivate friendships. 

Our vision is to bridge the gap between families of children with special needs and the rest of the community while providing today’s teens with a productive and enjoyable focus.
This in turn causes the teens to lead their community in advocating for people with special needs.
