There are a lot of organizations that impact lives everyday. For us, the organization is The Center For Independence. Carmine has been going to CFI for more than 5 years and it‘s amazing how much they challenge him to be independent.
This year, we decided to let Gianna and Vinny tell their story about how The Center For Independence has changed their brothers life. CFI is a non-profit organization that offers children with disabilities the opportunity to learn independent tasks. Their services and experts are phenomenal, every donation goes to growing the organization, helping more children.
The Center For Independence has helped our brother grow from crawling all the time, to using a walker, to walking with canes and now we are practicing walking without canes! The Center has helped him become more independent and reliable for himself and not on other people. So he can do things just like us. He moves faster, without falling as much. He is also much bossier. Carmine can take off his braces and is practicing putting them on. He is also practicing getting dressed. He can undress himself because his clothes are always on the floor. What we love most about our brother is that he never gives up and always has a smile on his face. His laugh will make you love him forever. To us, the Center For Independence is life changing. By donating you can help kids excel more and more.
A sincere thanks to his therapists, our family and friends and everyone who donates to this incredible organization. xoxoxo, Carmine, Joe, Katy, Gianna and Vincenzo
