My lovely mother nominated me to dump a bucket of ice water on my head or donate to ALS research. Fortunately, I do not know anyone directly suffering with ALS. I do however, know two amazing young girls full of life who are affected by Cerebral Palsy. These two little ladies are my cousins who embrace the challenges they're handed with ferocious positivity.
In the beginning of the year my cousins were given the opportunity to visit Disney World, something my aunt and uncle thought they were never going to be able to do. After seeing the photos and hearing about the trip I knew I needed to be a part of giving to a family in need. The ice bucket challenge has reminded me of this thought. So today, on behalf of Eliza and Gwen Gort, I am donating to Make-A-Wish Michigan. They gave my cousins the chance to experience a family vacation unlike any other, I am very grateful of this organization.
