The National Inclusion Project is an excellent charity that was cofounded by singer Clay Aiken and his friend Diane Bubel, who is the mother of a son who has autism. This charity runs and supports camps and programs which bring together children with and without developmental disabilities. The charity relies on individual and corporate donations and just a few key fundraisers throughout the year.
I have been proud to be a donor for the National Inclusion Project for a number of years now. Their mission statement -- to insure that no child sits on the sidelines -- really resonates with me. I have seen first hand the amazing work they do by providing training to counselors and parents and educators. Visiting a YMCA summer camp really put the work NIP does into perspective for me. They ARE making a difference in the lives of children. My hope is that you will eventually change the heading you have for them to their proper name as NIP is no longer the Bubel Aiken Foundation. The name change truly reflects what this organization is aiming for: to be a Nationally recognized charity.
