Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play
Help Us Win $10,000
The Miracle League of CT works hard to provide recreational, educational and cultural opportunities for children with special needs and their families year round. We have come across a unique opportunity to help us to win a $10,000 grant from the KIND Foundation that will help us to further our mission.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
We are not asking you for money, just a few minutes of your time can help us to achieve our goal.
The KIND Causes program allows groups like ours to nominate themselves for a particular project that they would use the $10,000 grant for. We have put forth our Super Saturdays program partnered with a new program that we are planning for the spring that will focus on the siblings of children with special needs.
Super Saturdays is an outgrowth of our very popular KIDS Club program that we held last year at Chapter 126 in Bristol. KIDS Club is an inclusive adaptive gym program. This year we will continue with the same concept for children ages 4-11, but we have added a new component for those ages 12-21. The new Varsity Sports Club will focus on one court sport each week which will include instruction and games. We have also added a component for the parents called "It Takes a Village". We will be bringing in guests each week to address some topics that impact families of children with special needs. These casual coffee talks will vary from week to week and will be held concurrently with the kids programs.
In the spring we are planning to initiate a brand new program that will focus on the siblings of children with special needs. Sibshops is a nationally recognized program that uses recreational workshops to help the siblings to engage with their peers and to perhaps enhance the family dynamic for them. We all know that every member of the family is special but we also know that a child with physical or development challenges requires additional attention. This program provides an outlet for the siblings to be special too.
OK so this gets us to how you can help us to win this grant. The winner is determined by a raw vote on the KIND Causes website. It's simple, the cause with the most votes gets the grant. We believe that with all of our contacts and with your help to promote this campaign with all of your contacts we can make this happen. We need this campaign to go viral!
