As a participant in an international event called Balloons Around the World, I will be teaching a balloon twisting workshop to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Their director expressed that it is very difficult for them to find meaningful employment opportunities for these individuals. This workshop will be a way to teach them a new skill that will encourage the use of fine motor skills and creativity. It will at the very least provide them with a sense of accomplishment knowing that they were able to create the balloon sculptures on their own...and may possibly even provide some of them with a skill they can use in the future as a way to earn income to help provide their financial needs! I will personally be providing all of the supplies they need for the class as well as donating my time to teach and train them. However, I would love to raise enough money to also furnish every participant with their OWN kit of balloon twisting supplies that they can keep. This will allow them to be able to practice the new skills they learned even after the class is over!! Each kit costs $13 and includes 100 professional quality balloons and a hand pump to inflate them with. I would like to raise enough money to purchase kits for a minimum of 15 participants, which would be $195 total. If we are able to exceed this goal, then I will accept up to 30 participants though. Any money raised beyond what is needed to furnish kits for 30 participants will be donated directly to the Community Opportunities, Inc organization to be used for any other needs they may have.
