#ThankYouThursday…OUR followers and community!

By LaunchPad

This week’s thank you Thursday goes out to our Launchers! That’s all of you out there that support our mission, the organization and most importantly the kids in the program! Yesterday, I tried something a little different! I put up one of our kids that finished her cooking classes and shared her photos with us to share, something I do a lot, but this time I asked all of you to give her some kudos and guess what? YOU DID!

Thank you for taking the time to encourage a young girl on her journey to find that special spark! These activities provide so much more than just attending classes. They help kids learn how to navigate through life in real time with real situations.  Emily had to be without her mother with a class full of other adults but she navigated the uncharted territory while learning a new sense of independence; all from a simple cooking class that she may not have otherwise had the opportunity to experience! #ExtracurricularsMatter

So today I am recognizing all of you who make it possible for these kids to experience these different activities that could potentially set them on a course in life that none of us could have imagined! Thank you for taking the time out of your day to inspire, congratulate and motivate Emily on this journey to find her special spark!Screen Shot 2016-06-30 at 11.48.12 AM
