Dear Friends, I've been thinking a lot lately about what Max's future life will be like when Heidi and I are both deceased. While this is hopefully well into the future, you never know what life has in store. One of the constants in Max's life has been the Friendship Circle. Every week Max engages with ordinary junior and senior high school kids who Max considers his Friends. And they are! They visit with him and play and engage in activities with him. Friendship Circle of New Jersey facilitates these interactions all week long. The payments we make to Friendship Circle for these activities only go so far. Friendship Circle helps hundreds of Special Needs Children, Young Adults and Older Adults through the programs they sponsor. But they need donations to make it all happen. This is where you can play a part in helping to ensure that Special Needs people can have a semblance of "normal life." Heidi and I pray that Friendship Circle will be here for Max when we are too old or are no longer here to help care for him. We need your help to make that happen. Please Donate to Max's fundraising page to ensure that Friendship Circle has the resources it needs for Max and hundreds of other Special Needs people. Thank you so very much! Keith and Heidi Lerner
