The Minutes for Memories staff are passionate and truly care about their mission. It's great seeing their natural interaction with children and the joy the kids take in getting to be part of memories.

My better half when healthy was a coach and played many sports. Once he was disabled he struggled with finding a way to channel his energy and love of coaching. He came across wheelchair soccer and enjoyed it. Minutes gave the team it's start. I am forever grateful to Matt and Greg for that. My better half is no longer with me, and I am thankful for the great memories I have.

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 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.

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!

MFM is a wonderful charity with an amazing mission. Everyone involved shows a sense of passion, creativity, and teamwork that reflects their mission to create new memories to prove that an injury does not have to dictate the quality of ones life. It is simply inspiring!

For such a young foundation they have already accomplished so much!
I cannot wait to see what Matt and the team bring to the table in the future.
