Last month's FUN

We had such a blast at Mad Platter last month! Kids painted a bowl, plate, or mug and we all enjoyed being together. We definitely have some future Picasso's in our midst!
The Therapy Place participates in the annual online giving campaign "Midlands Gives," having raised over $100,000 in the past 5 years!! This makes for a very economical fundraiser since there is virtually no cost to us!!

But we need your help to spread the word! You're our biggest asset -- as families who use our services and past supporters -- and we need you to encourage your friends, family and the community at large to believe in TTP, too! Your donation allows us to continue to provide the life-changing therapies we know each child needs to reach his or her full potential. There's a reason we're a nonprofit - this business is not a financially viable one...it takes philanthropic gifts to make the #MiraclesinMotion happen!

All money we receive from Midlands Gives is used to provide scholarships for programs not covered by insurance, our family support services, therapy equipment and upkeep of the facility. That said, we are humbly requesting donations be made on Tuesday, May 7, from 10-11am the "Power Hour" where the nonprofit with the most unique (not amount) gifts receives an additional $2,500 bonus prize!

Our goal this year for Midlands Gives is $35,000! With our $10,000 match already committed, we need another $25,000 in new gifts! We think we can do it!! Do you? #MiraclesinMotion
Many schools are on Spring Break this month. Make sure you let us know if you will not be here for your appointment!.
