As promised earlier in the week, today’s Feel Good Friday post comes from Christy – a Bay Area burn survivor who has been part of the Foundation for the past 10 years. Be sure to check out her guest blog post that she wrote this past Wednesday.
What is it that you enjoy most about AARBF?
The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation is an incredible organization. I have grown up with the foundation’s support ever since I was burned at age 6 and the events that I have attended have changed my life. Last summer, I had the opportunity to intern at the AARBF office in San Francisco. Seeing the behind-the-scenes of the foundation was really great! For a 17 year old like me, the foundation offers assistance in terms of scholarships, recreational events, an internship and most importantly, burn support. Choosing one thing that I enjoy the most about this foundation is quite difficult; since this foundation has given me so much in the 10 years I have been a part of it.
What would you like all of the Growers to know about AARBF?
AARBF is not your typical foundation. It has helped so many people with the variety of things it has to offer. Every person is helped by this organization: burn survivors through recreational events and support, family and friends through support, and the general public through fire and burn prevention programs. This foundation has changed lives and every Grower should know that those crazy mustaches, although they do get food caught in them and possibly anger your significant other, help raise funds for an organization that does amazing things. Thank you so much for helping to fundraise for a wonderful cause!
