CHARITY MISSION

CHADD (The National Resource for ADHD)

  • OUR MISSION: The National Resource Center on ADHD (NRC) is the CDC-funded national clearinghouse for evidence-based information about ADHD and CHADD was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with ADHD.
  • OUR PERSONAL STORY: This brain altering chemical interruption called ADHD has effected numerous members of my family including my sister, son and others.  From the standpoint of being a mother of an ADHD child to a sibling who has struggled with it for 48 years, there is much to be learned about dealing with day to day activities, keeping morale and confidence up and building a support for those dealing with it.

OUR CONTRIBUTION:  $250 is donated from every closing to CHADD

ADA (American Diabetes Association)

  • OUR MISSION: Our mission is the same as the organization itself;  To aid in the prevention and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.  This includes many things such as organizing walks, runs or fitness related activities for the community as well as giving money from each closed deal to assist in finding more and better solutions for diabetics.
  • OUR PERSONAL STORY:  At age 26, my sister passed away from Juvenile Diabetes, there was a sort of ignorance in our family and in others with this disease that I realize now needs hyper awareness.  I will admit that until you are living with it directly, you will never, I repeat never understand what its like to live day to day minute to minute with this disease.  I know that a healthy body, mind and spirit contributes to banishing diabetes and I like to assist others in all areas starting with the mind.  This disease does not have to kill people, it can be overcome, it can be beat.  My goal is to make those who may be either susceptible to it or who currently have it, more aware about how you can control your mind, and your mind can control your body.  You do not have to be controlled by the disease.

OUR CONTRIBUTION:  $250 is donated from every closing to the American Diabetes Association.

PAWS FOR READING 

  • OUR MISSION: Improves the literacy skills of children in a unique approach employing a classic concept; reading to a dog. The R.E.A.D. program utilizes registered therapy animals, who have been trained and tested for health, safety, skills and temperament. These special animals volunteer with their owners as pet partners teams, offering children an irresistible opportunity to improve their reading in a setting which has proven not only effective but fun.
