For anyone interested in how/why this whole thing started and how it works here's a very detailed explanation!
The holidays are coming up and for many of the families we work with in Early Intervention it's a time of stress and worry over how they'll be able to provide gifts for their children. Early Intervention serves children birth to 3 years old with special needs in Philadelphia in their homes. The EI kids and their siblings who receive gifts from this drive have families are really struggling just to have their children's basic needs met. It's not uncommon for us to have a client with almost no toys or books in the house. After bills, food, etc there's just nothing extra at the end of the month. How it works- Early Intervention serves children birth to 3 years old with special needs in Philadelphia in their homes. Togetherwith other therapists, I put together a list of any kids on our caseloads that are in need. There is no shortage of kids, once I have the first lists of kids covered, I'll reach out to a few more therapists for more kids. Therapists see up to 25 kids a week, in poorer neighborhoods that means that almost every client's family is struggling. The gifts we help provide through this drive are often almost the only ones these kids will get this year. Anything helps. I'm getting a list together now of kids and ages for anyone who'd like to choose a specific child. You can also donate electronically or buy a gift on Amazon and have it shipped to me. In the first year we made 15 children very happy, 2 years that number was nearly doubled and last year, the fourth year, we gave gifts to over 80 kids! Thank you all so much, I've been overwhelmed by your generosity and wish everyone could see the joy and relief on the parents' faces when they find out that their kids will have gifts for the holidays. To all who have given, you're awesome, for those who didn't, here's your chance to be as awesome too! Also, always looking for elves, of course.
