NAAP is joining and helping to pioneer a movement to make activities part of the everyday national dialogue through startsomejoy.org. The idea behind the movement to get all caregivers in a setting – Facility or Home – to commit to one activity per day for the person they care for.
NAAP has the opportunity to raise $100,000 over the 120 days to develop programs that meet our organizational goals Education, Advocacy and Scholarship
The money will be raised two ways and they are tied together.
First – A donate now button is being placed on the startsomejoy.org website that allows anyone to make a direct, tax deductible donation to NAAP and this will be done immediately.
Second – R.O.S. Therapy Systems has agreed to donate to NAAP up to $50,000 based on the sales of the Activities for the Family Caregiver book series.
In order to do this, we need your help as we have an obligation to spread the word in order to receive the funds.
