Breanna’s Gift was the charity partner at the Faffcon “unconference” held in Minneapolis. This group of voice over professionals from all over the world comes together each year at a different location. Our board president was present to receive the heart felt donations that we made to our organization during the 3 day event. And in the end, an incredible $8,000 was raised for Breanna’s gift. We are humbled and rendered completely speechless by the more than generous support we received from the Faffcon group. As voice over professionals, we understand that being rendered speechless would not be a good thing. But for us it has been the very opposite. The only word we could find to express ourselves was WOW! and WOW! THANK YOU FAFFCON.
When it’s too hot to go outdoors for sidewalk art, Breanna’s Gift teacher Kim brings the sidewalk inside. The walk was about 20 feet long when we started and by the time everyone was finished, it was full of fun drawings and got another 6 feet longer. Board of Directors Vice President, Billy, helped the kids execute some ideas, encouraged them to think and draw big. He was king of the chalk.
Some might say that serving on a board of directors is all work and no play. Breanna’s Gift can prove otherwise, as our board president spent some time volunteering at our art and dance classes. He helped with a printmaking project and showed us that he had a few secret moves. Who knew? Thanks Rick!
We are so honored to have a very hard working board of directors. Everyone on our board takes an active role in a variety of Breanna’s Gift needs, from helping Breanna’s Gift to become better known in the community to volunteering with our teachers and getting a chance to spend some time with the children. It’s a chance to see our program close up and personal and the kids love it.
