Message from Michael and Grant Miller, Miami’s Community Newspapers and supporters of Walking 4 Friendship http://www.walking4friendship.com/millerbrothers (please click “Read more" below to read the entire message regarding the mission of the group, purpose of the event, tax deductibility and important contact information):
We are walking on Sunday, February 10, 2013, for children with special needs and we are asking for your support to help us reach our goal.
It's not every day you see a child or teenager with special needs being embraced and accepted for who they are. But at the Friendship Circle of Miami it is a part of every day life for many special needs children living in Miami. The Friendship Circle provides their "special friends" a chance to learn and socialize in an environment that not only accepts them, but celebrates their spirit. The Friendship Circle of Miami offers many different programs and services to these special children and their families, and by incorporating their teenage volunteers a simple act of friendship is developed and lasts for many years!
You see, the spirit of a child with special needs is one of loving friendship. Their ability to love others and see the world through innocent, nonjudgmental eyes is a quality that most people only hope to one day achieve. This quality is a gift given every day between the volunteers and their "special friends" at the Friendship Circle.
The work of the Friendship Circle of Miami has inspired us and touched our life in many ways, and that is why we have chosen to participate in OUR Walking4Friendship 2013 3K Walk and Community Carnival on February 10, 2013. We are writing today to ask you for a donation. By donating to the Walking4Friendship fundraising event, you can join us and the Friendship Circle of Miami in our mission to open loving arms to our "special friends". 100% of your donation will go toward their programs servicing children and teenagers with special needs and their families. Your feelings of making a genuine difference in a child's life will last a lifetime.
To donate to us or our team please click the link below. Your response to our request would really mean a great deal to us, but more importantly, it will mean a great deal to families in this community who really need this relief and support.
Thank you so much!!
Grant & Michael Miller
