For my class Exceptional Learners we have to do 10 hours of service learning at a place or school that helps kids with special needs. I am doing my 10 (well it will be way over 10) hours at a place called Small Miracles. From their website: "Small Miracles is a nonprofit corporation founded through love to enhance the physical, emotional, social, and cognitive growth of individuals with special needs through equine-assisted activities."
So they help kids develop skills by riding and helping to take care of the horses. It is an amazing program that is mostly ran with the help of the volunteers.
They are having a fundraiser today at Bristol Motor Speedway (you Nascar fans know where that is...LOL) called the Miracle Mile. They are having people get sponsors to sponsor them as they run around the race track and help raise money for their program. I am donating 104 cupcakes. I made blackberry, strawberry & white chocolate, and vanilla bean with a vanilla bean frosting (all minis for easier eating). I am also volunteering to photograph the whole event. Here are the pictures of the cupcakes:
