What is Midlands Gives? It’s a one-day online giving campaign for nonprofit organizations in the midlands area. The Therapy Place has raised $184,713 through Midlands Gives participating all of the past 7 years. We look forward to having your support again this year as we raise funds for our outdoor space.
What will we do with the money raised? – PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENTS & SHADE
The Therapy Place is raising funds to provide shade for our playground and additional accessible/adaptive equipment.
Last year’s Midlands Gives was so successful, donors provided for the playground to be resurfaced with solid rubber to make it accessible for all children who receive services at our clinic to run, walk, roll, and play on the playground. Our next big capital expense is to have shade added so that the playground may be used year-round. The summer months are extremely hot, especially dangerous to children who have seizures with raised body temperature. Too much sun is not good for anyone and we want to keep our children safe and comfortable to be able to utilize the playground space as much as possible.
This year, Midlands Gives is Tuesday, May 3rd from 6am to midnight.
However, we are focusing on the POWER HOUR from 10am-11am! The Therapy Place participates in a special “Power Hour” during which the nonprofit with the most UNIQUE donors wins an additional donation amount! So if you’re planning on giving, and we hope you are, please try to make your gift during that hour to even further maximize the power of the gift — as we’ll be in the running for the prize!
ALSO, a special donor has provided a $10,000 match meaning that every dollar given up to that amount is DOUBLED!
Thank you so much for all of your support!
We can’t do it without you!
