Who/What do the proceeds benefit?
The proceeds received will be reinvested in equipment required to make candles and scrubs on a bigger scale. Currently we have the equipment good for making small batches and it takes a great amount of time. We also look forward to continuing supporting and expanding our vocational program.
We currently have available the FALL and HOLIDAYS COLLECTIONS.. Quantities are limited and we will be able to take pre-orders up to December 2nd for the Holidays Collection only. We hope to receive the material needed on time and have orders ready and delivered by December 10th.

For over five years, ABLE United’s mission has been to educate the disability community on the benefits of ABLE accounts. We are so grateful for our partners, like The Makers Market, who believe in our mission and afford us the opportunity to share how Florida’s disability community can become savers and investors for the very first time.
CIL was so happy to be there and to support the event because there are so many people out in our community with disabilities who truly have some amazing talents and skills that need to be shared with others. This is a fantastic opportunity to make people who don’t always feel independent, to feel valued and in turn- independent.

Helping to protect families is at the heart of what we do. We are committed to making a difference in communities across the country. Through our sponsorship of Child Medical ID event, New York Life continues our mission to serve the needs of local families and build relationships on a favorable basis. We believe in supporting our local communities in any way that we can, we focus on giving back to our community by giving them a piece of mind knowing that we care about them and their children. Especially with the Abilities workshop, we love being a sponsor and supporting them in any way that we can.
Their newest Maker's Market is such an amazing event, and even though it rained out we were honored to be a part of it. We are looking forward to their next event, as we enjoy coming out to each of their events with our child medical ID machine, meeting new wonderful faces, having a great time with everyone, seeing smiling faces and giving out their medical ID FREE of charge. By having a Child Medical ID will give parents or guardians the peace of mind knowing that should anything ever happen to their child, they will have an ID and a CD with all of the vital information on it to distribute to the local authorities.

New York Life’s Child Medical ID Program is designed to help children in our communities learn how to stay safe in the home, at play, or wherever they happen to be.
Child IDs are created using the EZ Child ID System, the nation’s most comprehensive digital fingerprinting child identification system. Created with help from the National CHIP foundation and law enforcement officials, this system ensures that the digital fingerprints meet industry standards by capturing all vital information required by the Amber Alert system. In only three to five minutes, a Child ID card is printed for each parent or guardian free of charge. Child ID cards feature a child’s photo, fingerprints, contact information, and other pertinent data needed by the police in case of an emergency. Please note that children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. No child’s information or pictures are electronically retained. All data is automatically erased after the Child ID is printed.
