It is always exciting when I can post news about The National Inclusion Project. This organization is my favorite charity and it has been amazing to watch it grow into one of the top inclusion organizations in the United States.
This week, the National Inclusion Project posted two important projects on their webpage.
National Inclusion Project Conference
Let’s ALL Play!
April 4-5, 2013
Marbles Kids Museum
The goal of the National Inclusion Project Conference and Let’s ALL Play is to provide a framework and resources for program providers. They can then take the information back to their area to implement successful inclusion in their programs.
According to the National Inclusion Project’s Website:
The conference will have information that will hit on every level and be beneficial for the program provider who is brand new to inclusion and the inclusion veteran who wants to do more and/or better to serve in an inclusive setting. The conference will focus on out-of-school settings, but education providers will certainly find content that will benefit them in the classroom. Supporters of the National Inclusion Project will also benefit as we communicate our mission and message.
The keynote speaker for this years conference is Anne-Marie Spencer. Spencer is the Vice President of Corporate Marketing & Communications, PlayCore. She has presented over 30 seminars across the country on a variety of topics related to children and the value of play.
For more information about the conference, visit the National Inclusion Project webpage. Be sure and pass the information to the summer and after-school programs in your area. NationalInclusionProject
Inclusion Grams – Make sure your friends are included this Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day is a day when no one wants to be left on the sidelines. Make sure your friends, co-workers, and family members feel included this Valentine’s Day with a National Inclusion Project Inclusion Gram*! For every donation of $25 or more made between now and February 14th, the National Inclusion Project will send a person of your choice an Inclusion Gram made by the children in our Let’s ALL Play partner programs.
*Inclusion Grams are Valentine’s Day cards made from construction paper and a child’s creativity. They include information about the National Inclusion Project, as well as who sent the Inclusion Gram and why.
I am so excited about this project. I have already made a list of those people who will enjoy one of the wonderful Valentines. For $25 we can do three things. We can make a person excited to produce a special Valentine and we can share the joy with the recipient. AND…we are supporting The National Inclusion Project.
Have you made your list yet?
