Thanksgiving is coming and we’re pretty sure that you’re all excited to spend it with your loved ones, especially your kids. They look forward to a sumptuous dinner starred by a delicious turkey roast and accompanied by other equally delightful dishes. You’re lucky if your kids are healthy and happy because they’ll make this much-awaited holiday even more enjoyable. Unfortunately, there are families out there whose kids are terminally ill and developmentally disabled. But who’s to say that sickness can prevent them from having fun with their loved ones?
Thanks to God’s Little Acres, a non-profit charity organization in Florida, children who are seriously ill are provided an escape from the typical hospital surroundings that remind them of their situation. The organization offers recreational opportunities for these kids and their families including hay rides, miniature horses, petting zoo, entertainment programs, clown shows, yummy lunches as well as special gifts that can add a little happiness in their lives. And this month, Douglas Orr Plumbing, together with The Stress Relievers, is supporting the non-profit’s cause.
