Every once in a while you accidently run into something that allows you to gain more than what you give back. Fishing Has No Boundaries is one of those organizations! Fishing Has No Boundaries gives the opportunity for those with disabilities to enjoy a beautiful day of fishing and enjoying the total outdoor experience. Regardless of your age, sex, or disability you are more than welcome to join in each Chapters activites. They are scheduled throughout various places and dates across the U.S. Remember when you took someone, someplace for the very 1st time? Remember that smile from ear to ear? Remember the excitement in their voice and their actions? Do you still remember all the warm fuzzies, with a great amount of detail? How about the hug at the end that wrapped you with all the love they had left? Fishing Has No Boundaries creates a lifetime of those same memories!! Experience it once and I gaurantee you can't wait until next year!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Getting involved from the bottom up in our Chapter has been a journey of love and learning. I have been fortunate enough to watch the smiles and anticipation grow for the past 8 years. I can't wait for another lifetime of those experiences!!!

Fishing is a time on the water when everyone is equal. It is more important today to give those that can not go themselves a helping hand. Sharing a day on the water is more than just the moment it is a time to remember when and next year when they can do it again. With disabilities so many some physical and some not when you bring them altogether it gives them a chance to see others some better off than them and some who do not have it so good. It gives opportunity to feel alive to build confidence. Most of all to see that special smile it speaks volumes, volunteer at an event you have made a difference to some very special anglers who may not have the chance without you.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Yes I have experienced the smiles and in sharing my volunteer time with others we have reached more and more disabled anglers and gave them a chance on the water. Creating something that can be shared and build confidence that is what it is all about.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Work to bring this experience to others find a way to get the word out and let more people know about the experience. It can not happen without support.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Bringing my children to experience volunteering 23 years ago and they continued to volunteer we have made a difference

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Wanting to help and do what they could. For some new volunteers they are hesitant at first not sure what to do for sure not wanting to hurt anyone and they find out it is very easy to help.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Not have to pick and choose who they reach out too. With so many states who do not have an event it is important to try our best to get to as many states as possible with the hope that from there it will grown in that state. Support the National Office

Ways to make it better...

more poeple would have come and experienced this special time shared.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Spreading the word to other areas that they can do it too. We must work to share this experience.

One thing I'd also say is that...

National office needs support to spread the word and assist the chapters with equipment the best way they can.
