They say things happen in 3s. Well, Brady's third just happened!
3. Chosen to be an ABLE United Savings Account spokesperson
Each state is authorized to establish a program that offers tax-free savings and investment options to encourage individuals with a disability and their families to save private funds to support health, independence, and quality of life.
Money contributed to an account in one of these programs is generally disregarded when determining eligibility for federal benefit programs, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid. Save up to $15,000 per year – individually or with help from family and friends.
"ABLE United" oversees the state of Florida’s qualified ABLE program. Its mission is to encourage and assist the saving of private funds to help persons with disabilities cover costs that support their health, independence and quality of life.
"The Faces of ABLE" is a new marketing campaign to promote ABLE United.
Brady was chosen to be one of its first spokespersons and a film crew just captured a day in his life!
Here we see ABLE United's marketing team filming Brady at Peace of Heart. Brady, Marco and Fred, Peace of Heart's enrichment program director, harvested carrots, cleaned some of the raised beds, fed the chickens, and then built part of a new raised bed.
After that, we came back to our house, where they interviewed me and Brian, Brady with his facilitator Hope, took pictures of our family modeling Hostage to Silence's t-shirts.
Then, most importantly, they PAID Brady!! He is officially a paid influencer!
I dreamed of this. Free to be me. Can good mom say thank you. I am happy. I am Able. My name is Brady.
