Good News Friday!

Sometimes I use this space to share some of the many (and often unique) ways members of our community support our mission of creating a world of opportunity for all abilities.

Here’s three fun examples:

For the second year in a row, the awesome kids, teachers, parents, and administrators at Ryan Elementary School in Lafayette helped to raise funds to support Imagine!’s Out & About program, specifically so Out & About can purchase a hand controlled adaptive bike. The bike will allow more children with disabilities served by Imagine! to experience the joy, freedom, and independence that comes from riding a bike.

The total raised was $1,318!

Awareness was raised as well. One teacher did a whole lesson with her students to teach them about disabilities, inclusion, and acceptance.

Thanks Rhinos!

Cellar West Artisan Ales is supporting Imagine! through their NCAA Basketball Tournament themed Roundball Rumble in the Bier Pub. Details are below.

All money raised will be donated to Imagine!. Visit Cellar West at 778 W Baseline Rd in Lafayette, or check out their website.

Finally, thanks to South Boulder Lucky’s Market, who selected Imagine! as one of this coming quarter’s (February 3-May 25) Lucky’s Bags For Change partners!

For our readers who live in the area, we’d sure appreciate it if you were to make a shopping trip or two to Lucky’s (located at 695 S Broadway St. in Boulder) over the next couple of months so you can participate in this fun and environmentally friendly way to support our mission of creating a world of opportunity for all abilities.

Here’s how it works: when shoppers bring in their reusable bags, they can choose to receive $.10 back per bag credit or donate that amount to one of the three Bags For Change partners, including Imagine!. Even better: when a shopper donates, Lucky’s Market will match the donation and double the giving to the nonprofits! Make sure you bring in your reusable bag so you can start dropping dimes to support the three partners.

The work Imagine! does is essentially a community-building endeavor, and therefore we can't do what we do without the support of our community. As demonstrated above, we are so fortunate to be part of such an amazing and giving community. Thanks to all who support our work
