Meet Brandon
Brandon’s goal is to raise money to support a local independent living
facility for adults with Down Syndrome and other cognitive disabilities.
Brandon plans to organize two bake sales, one at his mother’s work, and another
through an after school group he is involved in. The money he earns from both bake
sales will be donated to the local independent living facility.
After the money is donated, he would like to interview workers and residents at
the facility to collect first-hand information on how the donations impacted the facility.
At the showcase, Brandon plans to create a poster board which exhibits
pictures from both bake sales, as well as comments/feedback he received
from workers and residents about the money that was donated.
