Volkswagen Group of America

With the support of Volkswagen, Band of Angels has been able to provide a week long bike camp for children with disabilities in addition to placing resource materials in hundreds of public libraries.  In looking at truly philanthropic giving, think about our friends from Volkswagen supporting a bike camp for young people with cognitive impairments; most of them will never drive and not be able to reciprocate in any way to Volkswagen. But oh, are their families supportive! At the camp, many parents actually marveled at the intense commitment and promised to look to Volkswagen for their next car purchase. Not only did VW provide financial support, but employees came out and ran alongside new riders to provide spotting and encouragement! The company also donated hats, t-shirts and water bottles to make the camp last long after the final session. We thank them and as always, ask you to support our supporters when given the opportunity!

SPECS4US was created and founded in 2004 by Maria Dellapina with over 25 years in the optical industry and the mother of a four-year-old with Down syndrome. She saw a definite need for this frame line.  After two years of searching for an eyeglass frame to fit her daughter, Erin, Maria decided to use her knowledge as both an optician and mother to help Erin and others like her.

“Erin’s World” is the frame line specially designed to fit children with Down syndrome superior to the typical frame.  Unlike other frames, the bridge is adjusted to fit on their smaller noses and the temples (some people call them arms) are designed to help keep the glasses from constantly slipping.  Erin's World frames are available in a variety of sizes and styles to fit toddlers to adults.

A passionate commitment to children and adults with Down syndrome for over 25 years.  AbleNet was founded in 1985 on a very simple idea: All children have limitless potential. It simply needs to be unlocked. For us, the ability for your child to learn in school, access a computer at home, or communicate with their friends isn’t just a noble idea, it is a basic human right. What started with a simple switch over two decades ago has grown into the most comprehensive offering of easy-to-use assistive technology products available anywhere in the world. We hope you’ll see how you can transform everyday experiences into growth opportunities for your loved one with Down syndrome.

Because we don’t measure our success in the number of years we’ve been in business or the hundreds of innovations to our name, we measure success the same way you do: One changed life at a time.

Here’s to your loved one's next great discovery.
