Disabled Children's Fund was created to help ease the suffering of disabled children, both here and overseas. (Picts of children with serviceman and child from India in wheelchair) For example, overseas, many kids don't get the services they need for their physical or mental challenges. (Pict of child in wheelchair and a pict of blind child receiving a gift of clothes.) Your gift will improve the quality of life for a child, (Pict of a child laughing with an adult.) and provide respite times for caregivers. (Pict of disabled children and families being served a meal) Here at home, you can help our military families who have children with special needs (Pict of a military mom and dad holding their children.) We do this by providing the "Exceptional Family Member Program" with extra funding at various military posts. (Pict of military father holding and kissing his daughter, pict of a military father holding his daughter and a group picture at a military post) Just think, $2 a week, for a year, buys supplies for respite periods (Pict of a military child at a military post doing a fun activity) for our wonderful military families with disabled kids. (Pict of a military family enjoying time together) And $5 a week buys a custom-fit pediatric wheelchair in India (Pict of a father in India with his child in a wheelchair) giving a disabled child mobility and dignity. (Pict of smiling children from India sitting in wheelchairs.) Will you stand with us? (Pict of boys with new wheelchairs.) With our low overhead, 96 cents of every donated dollar goes to help these wonderful children (Pict of smiling child in wheelchair). Any amount can make a real difference in a child's life. Thanks!
