“I have solicited TV actress Melissa Peterman, best known for her role as Barbara Jean on the TV show Reba and Bonnie on Baby Daddy, to join in this campaign,” says Julianne. Melissa proclaimed “I will eat a fly if you match my $250.00 pledge!”
This gesture may sound silly, but it represents a huge challenge for us! However, this is nowhere near the challenges the folks that ConnectAbilty provide services for, face on a daily basis.
ConnectAbility is leading the North Georgia region in providing services and support for children and adults with special needs, along with their families, care providers and communities in which they live.
All of ConnectAbility’s programs are provided at no cost to the families who participate, which is why private funding is so important!
What is the ieatbugs.org campaign?
ConnectAbility is a non-profit organization with a mission to help individuals and families affected by disabilities to connect with resources so that everyone can fully participate in the community.
We provide monthly respite activities to give parents & caregivers a break, host parent & sibling support groups and
Ieatbugs.org is our first national campaign and we are excited to have the support of our great friend, Melissa Peterman.
The idea is simple –
Eat a bug!
Challenge your friends!
What do I get for participating?
