Champions & Heroes Event @ Warehouse Winery

Our #GivingTuesday celebrations consist giving back to our community of Champions & Heroes each year. We want to thank our community, whether it be partner organizations or our donors. These are the people providing everyday adventures for children with disabilities and opening up worlds of opportunities through building inclusive communities.

#GivingTuesday is an annual global day of giving on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Designed in conjunction with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, this movement allows others to help through the gift of their time, donations, goods or voice. Since 2012, the global giving community has donated over $1 billion to causes on #GivingTuesday.

Join Paul’s Pals as we honor our Champions and introduce our Heroes, as we highlight the direct impact of the projects your efforts support. These two groups work together to fund, support and build inclusive communities.  These are the stories of how we change lives of children with disabilities, together.

Learn more about our 2018 event and Heroes.
