Fundraiser for Kids with Disabilities

Adam Ferrara

On May 25th was our Special event at the Ft. Lauderdale Improv starring "hilarious" actor and comedian Adam Ferrara, and the lucky ones who attended the show had a lot of fun!

It was a great evening of laughter and good will to raise funds to provide critical and early therapeutic interventions for children with disabilities.

What We Do

The Spons'a-kid program


Bright Steps Forward has created a unique new fundraising program for families worldwide who cannot afford the myriad of therapies needed for their child. Our concept is simple: we create a customized fundraising page for each child where they can tell their compelling story and set their fundraising goal. Parents then share the link to the page with family, friends and social networks who are encouraged to support the cause with a donation and help the campaign go viral.
