Everyone, after getting a bit discouraged with my online fundraising, I made a box with a note for the counter at the River's Edge Deli across See more
On September 30th, our team will have raised the most that we could possibly have raised for the Dreams from the Hardt Fund. We walk in honor of JD Hardt, a staff member who was taken from us too soon, and in the hopes that we can keep his legacy alive though helping CWS participants realize their Dreams. 100% of our proceeds will go directly to the Dreams Fund, and 100% of that fund will be used to sponsor dreams like: learning to play the guitar, visiting family out of state, getting a new racing wheelchair to participate in the Boston Marathon, and so much more. The adults with disabilities and brain injuries that Creative Work Systems supports often have little to no disposable income. This income typically goes to OTC meds, personal hygiene products, and clothing. The basics. A person's dream, regardless of ability or disability, is anything but basic. Having goals and hopes and wishes is a fundamental part of being human. Realizing those dreams gives individuals a deeper connection to others, satisfaction in life, and just pain old, genuine, happiness. Please, share our fundraiser, donate to our fundraiser, or just mention it to someone today, and part of our goal will have been accomplished. And may the happiness of granting a dream find you as it finds the dreamer.
