What is Planned Giving?
We have all witnessed a moment where a small token of kindness resonates into your soul and stays with you for the rest of your life. For volunteer Seth Timen, his time came helping Harvey, a young bilateral above-knee amputee who came over from London with his parents to attend CAF's A Celebration of Heroes, Heart and Hope gala and multisport clinic in New York City. Harvey's mother said that Harvey would never go into the water and that kicking and screaming was his normal reaction to anything that scared him. When paired with Seth, who wouldn't give in to his crying, Harvey quickly came around and they became buddies. Soon he was pushing off the edge into Seth's arms, dunking his face in the water and was actually swimming. Seth believes that those few hours are the beginning of a great swimming future for Harvey and affected him personally as he stated,
CAF's Planned Giving initiative is intended to do more than we thought was possible and to ensure that such acts of kindness and support will continue for those we serve with physical disabilities for many years to come.
