This is Ellie, the little girl who has inspired my company’s fall fundraiser.
Ellie is nine years old and has autism. Her family loves her very much, but struggles every day to create a safe and happy environment for her.
Ellie currently goes to a wonderful school for autistic children, but the summers remain a struggle. Last summer, Ellie had the opportunity to spend two weeks at Camp Ramapo for Children, a beautiful facility in upstate New York for children with special needs. Ellie’s parents were initially worried about how she would do away from home, but she took to it like a fish to water!
Our charity event “Ellie’s 555 Superhero Challenge” will help fund Ellie’s visit to Camp Ramapo next summer. Five superhero teams from GDS International will scale five of NYC’s most iconic landmarks on December 9, 2015. Please help support Ellie and my team, Team Superman, by donating today!
Thanks so much from The Sticky Egg!
