Finley Grace Hollinger was born with Leigh's Disease, a mitochondrial disorder. In the eight short months she spent in this world, Finley taught us to love each other with our actions, make time for play, and find a reason to smile in everything we do. We often summarize these lessons with three words -
love, play, smile.
The goal of Finley's Smile is to provide authentic experiences to children that build background knowledge and aid in future learning, while encouraging families to spend time together. At this time, we are accomplishing this though our Games in Schools project, as well as our Love, Play, Smile grant program.
