This is the most wonderful program teaching life skills to special people. I can see the staff and students are very committed in this program. This was probably one of my BEST assignments ever.
I met Michael Dergar who was one of the assistants in the class. You could tell that he was totally dedicated to these students with his compassion. At the end of the day, he started telling me about the nonprofit organization he started called The Academy of Special Dreams Foundation. As he was explaining this foundation to me, he said they are going to have a fashion show and that is when I my eyes got BIG. I told him that I have experience dressing models and would love to help out.
Please look on their website www.specialacademy.org. This website has over 100,000 hits per month. Their mission to increase public awareness, appreciation and recognition of creative talents of people with disabilities by providing opportunities that encourage, promote, and showcase their artistic expressions.
How wonderful is that!
