The spookiest time of year is right around the corner. And to make this October especially scary, I'm joining National Inclusion Project's Face Your Fears Halloween Challenge.
I've always been painfully afraid of snakes, even looking at them makes me weak in the knees. I avoid exposure completely, when possible. I freak out when I see one, dead or alive. So, I'm willing to go through the snake exhibit at the zoo, and even hold a snake. (pictures will be taken) I've got goosebumps just typing this! If I'm going to be scared out of my wits, it HAS to be for a good cause.
The Face Your Fears Halloween Challenge isn't just about doing something scary; it's about raising money to support NIP in their quest to make the inclusion of children with disabilities the expectation, not the exception.
Why the sudden burst of bravery? Well, I know that many children with disabilities fear they will never make a friend. And that just breaks my heart. Plus, I LOVE the camp experience, and know how important it can be in the life of any person, and a great place to make friends!
Your support will make a big difference and go a long way to helping me meet my goal for National Inclusion Project, and to making sure no child EVER has to feel this way. I set my goal where I did so that FOUR kids can attend camp and make some great new friends!
