What do you get when you cross ..
~ A precious little girl named Riley with many, many gifts who struggles with the anxieties and challenges of Asperger’s Syndrome, an Autism Spectrum Disorder
~ A wonderful organization that trains service dogs for fabulous kids like Riley
~ Her loving Mom, Dad and little brother who would do anything to make sure that she feels safe, secure and included
~ And me?
C’mon, now. You know me pretty well by now …. Take a guess!
No? Nothing? Give up?
Yes, friends, in the spirit of this season of giving, I am trying to help these caring, delightful people to realize their dream of an autism service dog for their sweet girl. And I’m asking for your help.
And yes, as always, there’s something in it for YOU! Not just good karma .. a chance at a fabulous prize.
