My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Special Spaces , Knoxville, TN, USA
It is often said within our organization that Special Spaces promises you "a day you will always remember and a day that a child with a life threatening illness will never forget". That's an understatement! I attended a fundraiser for an ill child, signed up to volunteer for his room makeover for the following weekend after meeting someone from Special Spaces that night. The following week, I was volunteering in the national office in Knoxville and now 18 months later, I have the pleasure to work side by side with our Founder and Executive Director, Jennifer Swain. I challenge you to find a group of more talented and tirelessly generous individuals all with the common goal of putting a smile on a child's face. Our mission is simple, to create a "Special Space" that the child has designed, anything that he or she can dream while also addressing their medical needs. We have 35 volunteer directors across the country leading teams of volunteers to create these unique special spaces. Many have full time jobs or some have made our mission their "job", but they all work equally from their heart to put that smile on an ill child's face. I promise you, the day you get involved with Special Spaces, is a day you will never forget!
