Remarkable Organizations 


Just knowing that organizations like these exist gives us peace of mind -- somewhere, somehow, someone is taking care of ... the poor ... the sick ... the environment ...

If one of these organizations captures your heart, contact them and see how you can help.

Special Kid Fund, Inc: Special Kids Fund is an umbrella organization for developmentally challenged children and at-risk youth. Many of these children come from communities that cannot afford special care necessary for such children. Special Kids Fund provides funds to open new vistas for such emotionally, physically and educationally challenged children. They undertake creative programs that enable the general public to participate in charitable causes on a regular basis. Their Charity Giving Gift Certificates are indeed a "gift of giving". It makes it possible for everyone to add a charitable dimension to every special occasion.

Cerebral Palsy Foundation: For over 40 years, the Kansas Jaycees' Cerebral Palsy Foundation (KJCP) has been a driving force in improving health and well-being of people with both physical and mental disabilities. It supports a multi-use facility where summer camp programs are held for persons who are physically or mentally challenged. These outdoor programs allow campers to nurture social, recreational, and educational life skills.
