Help Turtle Wing Foundation Make Our Match!

Turtle Wing Foundation is kicking off a full month of autism awareness activities on April 5 which is being proclaimed Turtle Wing Day. Six school campuses in the Turtle Wing service area will be wearing green or their Turtle Wing Foundation t-shirts to help bring awareness, along with incorporating special announcements, prayers, or educational programs. Additionally there will be seven autism awareness softball and baseball games hosted by area schools. Prissy, the miniature horse "adopted" by Turtle Wing who is a service animal with Mini Horse Helpers will be featured at an animal themed open house and book fair at Weimar Elementary; and a full day of training will be held on the inclusion of special needs into the daycare setting in Hallettsville.

The whole community is encouraged to participate either individually or with their work family. Additionally participants are asked to share their Turtle Wing Day pictures on Facebook (@turtlewingfoundation, #TurtleWingDay2018). Those who do will be entered in a drawing for some amazing Turtle Wing treats for their office or group.

April 5 is also day one of a special #MakeOurMatch campaign. Thanks to the generosity of Chuck Brown Ford of Schulenburg, the first $5000 donated to Turtle Wing Foundation during autism awareness month will be matched!

With the reach of Turtle Wing growing each year – 298 children received direct services last year alone – new and creative funding approaches will be necessary to sustain Turtle Wing's early intervention, supplemental services, and community education and advocacy activities. Though the mission of Turtle Wing Foundation is "helping children with learning challenges in rural areas to achieve their full potential", it was founded in memory of Jack Hooper who had high functioning autism.
