I CAN TOO Foundation is an international charity organization dedicated to supporting children with special needs. It was established in 2006 in Bulgaria as a private initiative by Nelly Radeva who has been living in Germany for twenty years.
In 2012 I CAN TOO was registered in the USA as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
I CAN TOO raises awareness and highlights the connection between environmental change and children’s health and lives, and the urgency to address it.
I CAN TOO’s activities are supported by in-kind donations from all areas of business and entertainment, private entities and individuals, and by the non-monetary partnership and support of the government.
The main idea of I CAN TOO is that everyone can join to support and contribute by whatever they CAN do best. Following this principle the organization established two therapeutic Centers in Bulgaria entirely by in-kind donations – one for children with special needs and one for children with autism.
Over 400 international celebrities are faces of I CAN TOO and have been spreading awareness of its mission and operations worldwide.
I CAN TOO helps more than 650 children with special needs and their families and supports three existing therapeutic centers – by directing donors to them.
Current fundraising goal:
The “Mobile Therapist” Program in support of the “Center for Hope” where 50 children with multiple disabilities receive daycare and rehabilitation. The program is raising funds for a specialized vehicle equipped with a platform for wheelchairs to transport children to the Center and a mobile therapist that can deliver rehabilitation at home. Funds needed : $120,000.
In the USA:
1. Raising awareness and highlighting the connection between environmental change and children’s health.
2. Tree Planting – as a solution for climate change
3. Establishment of a Center for Autistic Children in Los Angeles to provide world-class intensive therapy for as many children as possible.
I CAN TOO is working in collaboration with the internationally renowned expert in the field of autism Jake Greenspan whose Greenspan Floortime Approach has shown incredible results in the therapy of autistic children to go from non-verbal to verbal.
Jake is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of The Floortime Center, the only international multi-site Greenspan Floortime clinic in the world. At The Floortime Center, they specialize in providing multidisciplinary intensive programs for children with special needs, focusing on building relationships, improving communication, and help children learn to think and problem-solve independently.
