A change to my blog-The Pay it Forward Project

As many of you know over the past three holiday seasons I hosted a family and provided them with gifts for the parents and young children in each of the families.  With the help of so many family and friends we were lucky enough to give all three families an incredible holiday.  But the holiday season is not the only time of the year that people are in need.  I am writing this post and asking you to share this on your FB page, on Twitter, email…wherever you can.  If you know of someone who is in need of something (I will be more specific below)…have them send me their story…and I will be happy to blog about it and share with as many people as I can.  Once I blog about their need…I will be asking people to donate to their cause (like a Go Fund ME)…but I will be doing the work…collecting the donations..reporting on how much we have collected and then sharing with the family.  There are many people in need who often times have a hard time asking for help from others…and may even feel ashamed to do so.

There are many times of the year people are in need: holidays, birthdays, back to school items, clothing, food, medical bills, therapy for their child (if not provided in the town they live in).  Tell me your story and I will be happy to blog about your need, a cause, or a foundation in need.

So I start off my pay it forward project with information I am so thrilled to share from Janson West who crochets barefoot sandals and is donating them for free to those in need!  How awesome.

I make crochet barefoot sandals and I am very interested in making some for girls and boys who cannot wear traditional shoes.
PM me if you would be interested. This will be entirely free!
All I will need is for you to visit my page, choose a style, and let me know where to send them! smile emoticon


The only condition is that I would like a picture of your angels wearing them, and permission to post to my page ^^

About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional resource....so that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
