Smile to help us reach our 2019 goals!
Can you believe we're past the midway point in the year already? Have you checked in on your goals for the year? How are you doing? Are you on track to accomplish what you set out to accomplish for 2019?
These are conversations we've been discussing at the Beautiful Lives Project. When we launched our national chapters in January, our Executive Director, Charlie Brignac, challenged us to grow like Redwood trees over the year, - intertwining our roots to form a solid support structure that will hold up our ever expanding canopies. Our original five chapters have taken root, we've become a solid team, and we've added three new members. While we're celebrating this exciting growth, we still have a long road ahead of us to meet our goal of opening five new BLP Chapters across the country.
Like most non-profits, our biggest hurdle in accomplishing this lofty, yet attainable goal, is funding. The national fundraising day, Giving Tuesday, is coming up December 3, but to reach our $75K goal, we're asking you to help us get started early. By simply doing your regular Amazon shopping through the AmazonSmile portal and choosing Beautiful Lives Project Inc. as your charity of choice, your everyday purchases can help move our mission of inclusion forward by leaps and bounds.

Speaking of smiles ...
The Beautiful Lives Project, Los Angeles-San Diego Chapter, hosted an event with our iFly partners in Oceanside, CA this past month. Our attendees included two wheelchair bound participants. If you haven't had the opportunity to host or attend a BLP event, please take a few moments to view the video below - the smiles are why we do what we do! To find out more about events or community partnership opportunities in your area, contact your local BLP chapter today.
A smile is worth a thousand words
While our Co-Founder, blind sportscaster Bryce Weiler, was out speaking to groups and giving interviews this month, our Chapter Presidents were out creating summer fun. From on the field baseball events, to splash days, and disco karaoke parties, the summer of 2019 will be one for the memory books!
