Nominate that child here!

Our first winner of the summer is Vivian Blandford, age 12, from Alma, MI. Vivian is going into the 7th grade this Fall at Donald L. Pavlik Middle School and is the daughter of Dave and Virginia Blandford. Vivian is a tremendous young lady with a bright future. She is involved with many extracurricular activities, including dance, the highland festival, her community garden, Girls Scouts, Student Council, The Middle School Newspaper, and many other things just to name a few.

Vivian was first nominated by her teacher, Ms. Goffnett, for the Wee Queen of Scotts at the Highland Festival and then for the same accolades by her parents for our Bikes for Kids Program. Vivian is very deserving of a new bike, even with a broken arm, that she seems to be taking with stride. Vivian’s teacher, Ms. Goffnett nominated Vivian for having taken interest in a student with a vision impairment in her class. Her teacher stated that Vivian has been a huge support for this student by helping with organization, explaining math concepts that may be confusing, and making sure the equipment and resources needed are charged and ready to go each day. She wasn’t asked to do this; she saw a need and willingly and enthusiastically filled it. Vivian’s parents explained that she was grateful to have the opportunity to learn more about this specific type of disability and it was making her consider possible career paths she might want to explore. We congratulate Vivian on being such a wonderful role model for others and taking an interest in her fellow classmate! We hope that you continue to follow your dreams Vivian! Congratulations!

Barberi Law, along with My104.3, 9&10 News, Meijer, and The Morning Sun will be rewarding children all summer long by giving bikes away to some very deserving kids in our community!

Our second winner this summer is Ava Martin from Mt. Pleasant. Ava is 8 years old, She will be in the 2nd grade this fall at Ganiard Elementary. Ava was nominated by her mother, Jenny Martin, for her dedication to helping domesticated, train, and ultimately help to adopt farel cats in her neighborhood. Along with Ava’s neighbor, Joelle, they have rescued over 20 cats since beginning their mission in 2020. Ava helps to spot the cats, feed them, and socialize them, so that one day they can find a loving home of their own. Ava is always very eager to help and has been very successful in taming cats that have had limited contact with people. We here at Barberi Law can’t think of a more deserving child of a new bike! Keep up the great work Ava!

If you are interested in the kittens show in the photo above, they are available for adoption and will be heading to the Karma Kat Cafe soon! Please contact us for more information! We love to see these sweet kittens Ava has raised to find their forever home!
