The Laughing Feet performance troupe has a very special place in my heart. It gives special needs kids and young adults the chance to perform. The happiness, the excitement, the friendship and the cameraderie is like nothing I've ever been a part of. They team those with special needs with their typical peers and they put on shows that will make your heart happy.
If you need assistance this holiday season - help is available but you need to make sure to apply for assistance soon. Every year I get calls the week of Christmas from people who need help and at that point it's too late to get help. It takes a while to gather all of the donations and distribute them so you need to make sure don't wait.
