I think foundations like this are awesome. The goals of Minutes for Memories are so inspirational. Coming from a very athletic background I know that if I had a life changing injury I would still want to do things like this. I know people who have had life changing injuries as well, so knowing there is an opportunity for them to still be apart of their dreams is very rewarding. The struggle that some of these individuals go through is worth the fight when they can get a reward like the ones that MFM offers. I admire everything they are about and think they are the cat's meow.

I get a great feeling just knowing there are organizations like Minutes for Memories out in our community. It is an integral part of our duty to society that we take time out to look after and care for one another; to give back even if in some small way. We need more champions for those less fortunate or voiceless. Keep up the great work!

I stumbled upon this site based on a recommendation. As I perused the pages, I felt there was an effort to improve people's lives, by providing highlights that encourage and providing a voice where there were only whispers. It is good to know that there are good people out there to inspire such hope and commit to such efforts to make people smile.

The team at Minutes for Memories is very dedicated to their cause. I have donated to assist their efforts and plan to donate again. The most impressive part is the "Resources" section on their website, www.minutesformemories.org, where they promote other organizations also fighting for similar goals.

Expand the team to help even more families.

Working with Minutes for Memories has been an extremely worthwhile, rewarding process. I got involved as an intern with the organization as a freshman at Boston College. Now, going into my sophomore year, I continue to work with these amazing people as we expand the network for young life-changing injury survivors. I remember that one of the first things said to me at the beginning of my time with Minutes for Memories was that my work there would be meaningful and valuable to the organization, and that has proven to be more than true. The members of this organization have big dreams for the future, and I have no doubt that they can successfully do whatever they put their minds to!

Minutes for Memories is a foundation with a thoughtful and important cause. It is run by a group of devoted and enthusiastic individuals, whose goal is to bring smiles to the faces of children in need (as well as their families). It’s apparent that the employees/volunteers truly care about the kids they work with and they strive to create a unique experience that’s well-matched with the interests of each individual. I’m also impressed by how the foundation successfully reinforces the notion of overcoming life’s challenges. Keep up the good work!
