My first thought upon being chosen by EDL for assistance was to say “if you demonstrate kindness you will always be between a hug and a smile-not between a rock and a hard place.” I am so incredibly humbled in being chosen to receive this assistance. There are so many people in need, but I know that if we reach out and take a stand even when we feel like we can’t walk – can’t move- can’t take all of the pain – that someone will be there to reach back. I try to never let my obstacles stand in my way but to find a way to stand in the way of them!! EDL and the person who created this organization have shown me that we need to spread kindness; for all of us are fighting our own battles. Thank you for this enormous gift of the heart


The founder of EDL personally knows how far help can go. In the middle of law school, 2010, he suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. He had to relearn how to do the most basic activities like walking or talking. With self determination and help from therapy and the department of assistive and rehabilitative services (DARS), he graduated law school and created this nonprofit. Without help, he firmly believes things would have turned out much different. That is why EDL wants to help. We know firsthand how much of a difference it makes.
