I need your help!!

FRIENDS! I need 30 seconds of your time to help some special kids. Obviously if I didn't think this was important I wouldn't be reaching out to you, if you agree feel free to foward a link to this on to your family and friends.
Four years ago, this little girl came to Now I Can with a walker… and after 4 weeks…she donated it to them! She had learned to walk. Now I Can is a unique charity that offers children with disabilities hope to be able to sit, stand, and walk as other children do. As a charity, they are a unique facility in the United States that offers as much discounted and free therapy as possible. Miracles large and small happen daily at their center. Now I Can wants to help every child reach their goals of independence, regardless of their ability to pay—and now YOU can help without spending a dime.

Now I Can is in position to win $30,000 from APX Alarm this Monday, August 23rd! This money will help many children desperate to have an opportunity to benefit from their unique therapy. A typical 3 week session of therapy costs $6,000,which is a daunting amount for those who already have mountains of medical bills. Now I Can was started to help kids who struggle to say “now I can” as they learn new skills. Four years later, they have helped hundreds of children, and they have all become an inspiration in this important effort to help children reach for a stronger future. Now they need your help.

Please help by “voting” for Now I Can today and once a day until Saturday, August 21st. It only takes a moment and will bless a life forever. Here are the simple directions (printscreens attached for those wanting better directions):

  1. Lindsay -- it's Jenny from Target many years back:) -- yes, I've been following your blog ever since. Love your toes. Anyway, I have been voting. In fact, I really really really really really REALLY want to get Sammy there, but we can't afford it. Even though it really is reasonably priced, considering what they do...we just can't do it. One day, I so hope to get her there. I've thought about trying to go through their financial aid -- but even then, I'm not sure how we would cover the rest. When I saw what was going on, I thought of you, my dear blog friend who I've met once in my life -- because I know you work for them. And I could kick myself for not even posting this on my blog. What?! What IS up with that? So, I'm off to post. But anyone reading this comment...Please PLEASE vote so children like mine will have a better chance of attending this incredible place. It changes lives -- CHANGES lives -- NOW, in the real, during-this-lifetime way. Thanks for posting this!
