Here's one of the many Rosedale School students /family who benefit greatly from gifts to the Rosedale Foundation. 

I first heard about the Rosedale Ride not long ago from a woman who I consider a Real Life Wonder Woman Mama ...Cee!  You can say hey to her at the Deli / Cheese Counter at H-E-B off Brodie & William Cannon in South ATX. During many of our #FridayNightShoppingDateNights, honey Ted & I have the pleasure of seeing Cee always with a beautiful smile and cool colored hair. The majority of her time outside of H-E-B is spent w/ her children. They are the Loves of her life, as well as her hubby too. There have been way too many times where Facebook posts show Cee at Dell Children's Medical Center w/ her daughter Aislinn. No matter what's happening, Cee seems to find the positive in a situation. She somehow turns it around with her smile and determination of a Wonder Woman Mama!  

The photo is of Cee's beautiful daughter Aislinn learning her lesson in the best way she can learn at Rosedale School. Rosedale is a public Austin ISD school serving kids from all over the district. Their students range in age from 3-22. Rosedale provides individually created programs to help  Austin's highest needs students. Gifts / donations given to Rosedale School / Foundation allows the students of Rosedale, who have significant medical, physical, and cognitive disabilities, to be able to learn in their way. The school motto is, “Independence Taught Here.”

One of Aislinn's favorite places at Rosedale is the Sensory Room that exsists because of Gifts from Giving Hearts! 

YOU ROCK to all Rosedale Supporters. Keep spreading the Love & the Word! Support for Rosedale School truly changes lives!
