• Why: We are working with Free Arts for Abused Children, a nonprofit organization that gives children that have suffered adversity a chance to express themselves through art. Another organization we are involved with is called “HopeKids”, a nonprofit that helps the families of children with life-threatening medical conditions find hope and enjoy life with a loving and supportive community of compassionate people. A portion of the proceeds will also be benefiting a new startup charity called Flight For Cystic Fibrosis. Founder Vincent Palacio is a skydiving instructor that also happens to have CF. This organization gives children with Cystic Fibrosis a chance to feel alive by experiencing the incredible feeling of skydiving through wind tunnels and jumps. The mission of this program is to show these kids how to overcome fears and feel hope, bonding families and encouraging healthy living.

The coolest part is that my husband and I signed up too, so I'll get to meet whoever wins! Unless it's just too crazy, but it's a possibility! How cool is that! I am so excited for this! My husband and I are starting our training today. We have a ways to go, but it will be fun just splattering paint regardless of our physical state.
