Quota Club

Did you know that Quota Club's mission is to help the speech and hearing impaired? 

I didn't know this until I sent out some letters and emails asking for help from area service organizations and I heard back from Valdosta's Quota Club immediately.

They wanted to help us.  
They wanted to help Luke.  
They wanted to help him more than just paying for a few speech therapy sessions, they wanted to raise enough money to help us get Luke back to The Kaufman Children's Center in Michigan and to keep him in the intensive therapy that we have been doing.

I must say that I was overwhelmed then, but not nearly as much as I was at the actual event.  

The Quotarians decided to host a yard sale in honor of Luke.

They set up media coverage from Dean Poling of The Valdosta Daily Times and Jim Miller of Black Crowe Media Services.  Dean's article was in one word...AWESOME!  It explained apraxia of speech and explained our plight.  I couldn't be more pleased with the coverage and the exposure that it brought to CAS, to the KCC and to Unlocking Luke's Voice. 

People came together~quota, our church family, friends and community members, some we didn't even know before.  The outpouring of love, support and prayers is truly unreal.

Thank you to all who donated, all who contributed, all who came, all who bought, and all who prayed.  Please keep those prayers coming.  Luke said exactly 6 word approximations that I had not heard clearly before today.  They were knock-knock, whoa, now, OK, move, and milk.  Oh and plain as day, he said WoW!!!  (several times)  So that makes 7 total~!  Go Luke and thanks to Quota Club for all their hard work.
