Any Baby Can: "To improve the lives of children by strengthening them and their families through education, therapy and family support services."
Any Baby Can has been serving families of Austin and Travis County, along with surrounding areas, since 1979 in order to achieve their mission: “ensure that all children reach their potential through education, therapy, and family support services.” This Saturday, MFX will aide them in this effort at Mom’s Night Out, an event hosted at the Embassy Suites Downtown.
According to their website, Any Baby Can “serves more than 6,000 of the youngest, sickest, and poorest children and their families in the Central Texas area.” This Saturday, we will show our appreciation and support for a very important aspect of these families- moms!
The two groups of Any Baby Can that will be hosting this event are the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Program and the CARE Program. The Candlelighters provide support to families dealing with childhood cancer, and is the only program in Austin to do so. The CARE Program, or Comprehensive Advocacy and Resources for Empowerment, provides support for families caring for a child- until the age of 21- who has chronic illness or developmental delays.
This Saturday, all attending moms will not only receive dinner, door prizes and manicures, but MFX’s very own Tess Rodriguez and Jennifer Allen will be performing relaxing facials and sending moms home with Aveda goody bags! These moms work so hard to be a stabilizing and supportive figure for their families, MFX is proud to be able to show their appreciation for all of their hard work.
