Sparrow Clubs

Sparrow Clubs

Sparrow Clubs exist to set the stage for simple, yet heroic, acts of kindness in schools and youth culture by empowering kids to help kids in medical need.

McKinley’s Sparrow Video


**Sparrows Club is beyond magical. Any family who has a chance to be a part of this can experience something that I feel all should when they have a child in need of medical care. Kids help kids and that is very empowering to see. Once a sparrow always a sparrow**

Sesame Street and Autsim

**There are 2 things with Sesame Street that I want to share. First off we all love the fact that they are about including all. It is wonderful that they go above and beyond. To top it off they have a site for individuals on the spectrum and they are helping those like my sunshine girl have vacations at their theme park in Pennsylvania! Yes far from Oregon, but someday we hope to go and if you are close and need to let your little one enjoy a vacation look here!:

Autism Inclusive Vacation Packages

This is amazing and just like the Sesame Street Park the Characters are there for your family to enjoy, they have wonderful vacation packages and honestly some day maybe we will take our little one here too if not to the Sesame Street Theme Park. She would love it!!! And yes it is hard to travel and find places to even go to when you have a child that marches to the beat of their own drum and that has complex medical needs. Sounds like they make it as easy as possible for parents and kids. The cost is the only thing to deal with, yes that alone can be much for anyone but knowing that a place offers something like this warms my heart! Thank you Beaches!!!! 

Enjoy an amazing Luxury Included® family
vacation knowing that your child is always
in good hands.
