For our 1st quarter I have selected Special Olympics! Special Olympics provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
For our 2nd quarter, Autism Speaks is the worthy recipient! Autism Speaks is dedicated to improving the lives of persons with autism and their families to help change the future for all who struggle with an autism spectrum disorder.
For our 3rd quarter, we have chosen Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Inspired by Alexandra “Alex” Scott and her mission to find cures for all types of childhood cancers, the organization is committed to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children fighting cancer.
For our 4th quarter, my Café Collections donations support the Pajama Program! The Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need nationwide, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These two simple gifts of pajamas and books let the children know that someone cares - sometimes these are the only new things they have ever received.
