SNAPPIN' Ministries is so much more than a charity. It's a ray of sunshine on a dark, stormy day. It's a glimpse of hope when a family is in despair. It's a kiss from heaven during someone's hell on earth. As a mother of two kids with special needs, a donor to this worthy nonprofit, a friend to another mom who received a basket, and a grateful recipient of a Mother's Day spa treatment. I heartily endorse this work.

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

We mothers of children with autism form a pretty tightly-knit group. Often, we refer to the "Mommy Network" as the best way to get things done and find hidden resources. A friend of mine was going through a challenging time with her son with autism. She and her husband desperately needed some encouragement to move forward. The basket I requested Barb send through SNAPPIN' made their week and gave them the strength to carry on and the "hug" that told them someone else cared.

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

get other ministries to collaborate with them to support their families with children with special needs.
