Special needs organization hosts Christmas fashion show | Community Spirit
Hands of Love is a non-profit organization founded by a mother whose child has special needs.
Their goal is to provide children and families with special needs a helping hand through educational, therapeutic and physical activities.
Hands of Love founder Tasha Love says the organization is dedicated to lending a hand to special needs families but they need your help.
Hands of Love is hosting a Fashion Show/Christmas Party on December 8, 2012 at Brinson’s Downtown (341 Madison Ave) from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. for children of all ages with special needs.
Love says family and friends will be coming out to show support for this special event but they are asking the public to join them on this special day to celebrate their children. Tickets are just $5.
The Hands of Love name and logo were created by Love and Vice-President of Operations, Timmie Robertson. The unique colors symbolize the diversity of the ethnic groups that have families with individuals with special needs.
Love feels that the colors represent the brightness of the smiles of all individuals that know and share the experience of having a loved one with a special need.
Robertson also takes a strong stand with the hands that represents the desire of others to give a helping hand without prejudice.
"The event is a celebration of our children and make it a day full of fun all about them!" said Love.
The name and logo both describe what Hands of Love is all about: an organization simply touching the lives of families with special needs.
Love says Hands of Love provides valuable resources and opportunities that are often overlooked by many.
