Why is BridgingApps walking on April 29th at the Houston Zoo? We are excited to participate in Easter Seals Walk With Me because we want to help children and adults with disabilities use technology effectively to communicate, develop skills and reach their fullest potential.
In addition to mobile devices, Easter Seals is also a resource for other technology including adapted toys and computers. Many BridgingApps clients began their journey with technology as babies and toddlers, borrowing toys from the adapted toy lending library known as ToyTech. As toddlers grow into adults, Easter Seals Greater Houston continues to provide life-changing services so that people of all ages with all types of disabilities can live, learn, work and play in our community.
Why we need your support?
The demand for services is increasing as more children and adults need Easter Seals help every day. According to the U.S. census bureau, 1 in 5 Americans is living with a disability.
We are committed to making a positive difference and we know how important Easter Seals is to our entire community. But we can't do it alone.
Please make a donation to help us reach our fundraising goal! Your support of our BridgingApps team will help provide access to mobile devices, as well as provide the education and resources needed to train parents, therapists, and teachers on how to effectively use technology and apps to target and improve skills.
Easter Seals Greater Houston is a fiscally responsible organization and one of the most efficient charities in Texas with $0.91 of every dollar going to direct client service. 100% of the funds raised by this event, and other Easter Seals events, stay in the community to help provide direct services to Houstonians.
