Improved Help for Special Needs

For those of you who don't know me, I've been assisting and training people with special needs and disabilities for a couple years now. In my field of work I have been helping clients reach goals they, or their parents never thought were possible before. I dont like asking for money but right now times are tough. In order to further my outreach of help and to provide the best possible care for these individuals, I need to advance my knowledge and skill set. All of my knowledge so far has come from years of experience in the special needs field, training myself, and training others. I need assistance paying for my CPT (Personal trainer certificate), CES (Corrective Exercise Specialist), and eventually plan on being certified in Behavioral Change Specialist, along with youth and elderly specializations. These certifications are not cheap by any means. Any help would be greatly appreciated and admirable, I have big big plans for the special needs community in the future and this is more for them and not as much for myself. Help me make a difference in more people's lives.

Update: All proceeds donated will be put towards a non-profit organization I am creating to fund and help families with special needs to pay for fitness
