AWARENESS + FUNDRAISING

Keep it simple or make it a major event! Every effort helps us to support more families struggling with apraxia of speech while also raising awareness. Whether your fundraiser is going to support a Walk for Apraxia or Apraxia Kids in general, we can support you. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Partner with a restaurant to host a Dine-to-Donate where a portion of sales is donated to Apraxia Kids
  • Order an Event Kit and request paper stars to make a star wall or support stickers for donors to wear
  • Hold an event such as a “Jeans Day” at work utilizing our Casual for a Cause stickers.  Learn more about Fundraising for Apraxia Kids in your Workplace.
