When Life Comes Full Circle…From Graduate to Intern

Seeing kids graduate from A Kid Again and go on to lead fruitful lives is such a rewarding experience. Having kids who participated in Adventures become part of our A Kid Again team is even more exciting! 

 Meet Emma! As our marketing intern and A Kid Again graduate, Emma has come full circle and is now helping to Fuel the Adventure.  

 After realizing how much she wanted to give back to the community that had given her so much, Emma reached out about the possibility of becoming a marketing intern. And she was met with a resounding yes! 

 Because of the special requirements that she needed due to her disability, Emma had been worried that she wouldn’t be able to find an organization that could understand her needs when it was time to complete her graphic design degree. She was relieved to find out that she would be treated like any other intern when she came to A Kid Again. 

“I  am so happy that I was able to intern with A Kid Again because I am now helping the community that helped me for so long while being treated fairly and equally.”

 “I am so happy that I was able to intern with A Kid Again because I am now helping the community that helped me for so long while being treated fairly and equally,” Emma said. “I love working with my supervisor on different projects for A Kid Again and thinking about how those projects will help so many other kids and families like mine.” 

 With Emma’s help and creativity, A Kid Again will soon launch our Donate Your Birthday campaign!  

 Donate Your Birthday is inspired by peer-to-peer fundraising, like GoFundMe or Facebook birthday donations. In Emma’s own words, “The Donate Your Birthday campaign is an easy way for anyone to help A Kid Again, even if they don’t have the money to do so.”  

 Fundraisers who reach a certain level will receive a cool Donate Your Birthday branded t-shirt and you guessed it…this shirt was designed by Emma!  

 We’re so proud of Emma’s hard work and how she’s continuing to spread the A Kid Again message through her designs.
