I’m pleased to announce the first event under my DJing for a Cause Initiative, the Great Strides Benefit Dance Party. This is a party in Second Life aimed at helping Great Strides Theraputic Riding, Inc. Great Strides is an interesting non-profit organization, through the use of horses, they offer psychotherapy, therapeutic horsemanship and learning. They serve Children (8 & up), teens, and adults, and help people who are having problems with other therapeutic treatment, who suffer from low self-esteem, problems at school or work, depression or anxiety, ADHD, emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, impulse control challenges or other life issues such as loss, divorce, learning disabilities, etc. Who knew therapy with horses could help with all of that?!
The Great Strides Benefit Dance Party is meant to help support scholarships for clients who are in need of the services but cannot afford treatment. Throughout the event there will be plenty of opportunity to help in donations, support and learn more about Great Strides. The event will happen on AMO Island thanks to In Kenzo (SLURL) on December 16th, 2007 from 11 – 2 pm PDT/Second Life Time (or 2 to 5pm Eastern)
