Ode to Volunteers

Ode to Volunteers

 Email

As the dust settled and the sun rose from below
A perfect world emerged where happiness did glow
A recent revolution overtook all humanity
Shaking the very foundations of the world's past insanity

Peering down from above with satisfaction and pride
The Creator wished to know who to credit for turning the tide
Unexpectedly the answer came from a small home faraway
A special child's smile gave the secret away

Pieces of the puzzle appeared high and low
As acceptance, love and friendship became the familiar flow
"Father in Heaven," the child's prayers He hears
“Thank You for remembering me when You created volunteers”

Friendship Circle is today's fastest growing Jewish organization for children with special needs. With over 76 locations worldwide Friendship Circle has cultivated friendships between 5,000 special children and close to 11,000 teen volunteers.

The unique vision of the Rebbe that "none of us are complete unless all of us are included" provides our motivation to bridge the gap between families of children with special needs and the general community while providing today’s teens with a productive and enjoyable focus.

Window To Our World, presented by Friendship Circle International, will share with you the inside perspective of special children, their families, volunteers, community members and Friendship Circle coordinators who bring them together.

For more information, please visit the Friendship Circle website.
