$10 Million in 10 Years!
YOU DID IT!
Our excellent supporters and volunteers propelled the National Inclusion Project beyond the $10M mark in total income in our 10th
year of existence. It is always nice to recognize milestones, but especially at this time of year – a time of thanksgiving, peace, joy, and hope. Through your support we collectively have opened doors to over 50,000 children that otherwise would not have had the opportunity to play and make friends.
Your love for children and caring hearts has opened doors and created an environment where all children belong. The appreciation we have heard from many of our campers can be summed up in the words of this song, which I am sure most of you are familiar, "Because You Loved Me"
Update on 2014 Partners
We are excited to be in the process of choosing our new Let’s ALL Play
partners for 2014. Thanks to your generous support, we should have over 100 Let’s ALL Play programs next year that we are partnering with through training, our Power of Play conference
, funding, and ongoing networking and consulting.
This year we moved our proposal process online, and, while we had a few glitches to be expected with new technology, the proposals rolled in. We have over 25 states represented in the proposals, including 3 new states where we currently do not have partners.
Look for an announcement early next year as to where we will be and then check out the calendar
to see if there will be a Let’s ALL Play Training in your area. We’d love to see you there!
Wrapping for Inclusion
WFI is underway! Hundreds of volunteers are braving the cold and crowds to spread the message of inclusion with those shoppers looking to get their gifts wrapped.
Check out our WFI page
to see where you can volunteer, get gifts wrapped, or support in some way. Special thanks to all of our WFI Coordinators and Volunteers!
