September is Craniofacial Acceptance Month

September 4, 2014

Organization: Children’s Craniofacial Association

2014 marks the tenth year Children’s Craniofacial Association CCA will observe September as Craniofacial Acceptance Month across the nation. Each year CCA families, friends, volunteers and related support groups band together to widen the circle of acceptance for individuals with facial differences. The goal is to create awareness of craniofacial differences and to get people to see that “beyond the face is a heart.”

As part of the 10th Annual Craniofacial Acceptance Month, CCA will hold its 7th Annual National Picnic Day on September 13th (or other date in September of your choice). CCA families across the nation will hold picnics giving them a chance to get together with other families in their areas, while promoting awareness in their communities.
If you would like to hold a picnic contact CCA Program Director Annie Reeves. CCA will invite all of the families in your area and help you organize your picnic.

In addition to raising awareness and acceptance, CCA is raising funds to support programs and services available to all individuals with facial differences and their families. Contact CCA Development Director, Jill Patterson for materials about this year’s fundraising efforts.

We hope you will join this important effort! Please call 800.535.3643.
