We held our second annual scholarship fundraiser for two weeks in August and doubled our goal of $700 to a whopping $1,400. Locally owned, home based businesses, Mom’s Creations (Johnnie Lipsius) and Queeny V’s (Jenny Vasquez) have partnered with For Maddie’s Sake, Inc. to help raise funds to give a scholarship to a 2018 Midlothian ISD graduate in pursuit of a career path in special education or therapy program. See some of their work below.
Many people had a chance to enjoy the infamous chocolate chip cookies, that are always at our Saturday Social Inclusion Dances, as Thank You gift for making a monetary donation. A big thank you goes out to Sheila Williams (Maddie's Maw) for baking almost 40 baker's dozen cookies!
"My name is Maddie and I'm a small teenager who enjoys life and has fun wherever I am!"
"There's more to me than just my special needs and my diagnoses. People are very curious about me and I don't mind sharing.
I was born with a rare disorder Feingold Syndrome which consists of my most noticeable characteristic,
Microcephaly (small head). Mommy says mine is cute and petite...just like me!
"God gave it to me, so I thought I'd wear it."
