A 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that helps children in crisis.

3 days ago

Our corporate truck had a cough, so we brought it to Mohawk Chevrolet—the experts in mechanical interventions. There, we were presented with a loaner. For the generosity of Mohawk Chevy and our enjoyment, we provide you with a non-compensated and not approved review of the Chevy Silverado 1500.

The team members at Mohawk Chevy said they had the perfect vehicle for us to use. Our eyes widened as a pickup truck glided in front of our view. We did not think it would not suit our needs, but we gleefully smiled, knowing we would not have to hitchhike for the next few days.

An hour after returning to the crisis intervention center, we already had three car seats lined up in the back row of this gem. For those who do not know, the back seat is equipped with car seat locks to keep your premiere cargo strapped in with minimal effort.

One of our younger team members decided to “test” the sound system in a crisis intervention center way. The “Gummy Bear” song sounded like an in-person concert that only toddlers and parents would dare to attend. Baby Shark chords echoed like symphonic tunes on a well-played harpsichord.

The cream of the crop was however, the non-promoted secret parental feature. The second row seating is so roomy that little feet are unable to kick the seats in front of them. This means if there is a pause within the Gummy Bear entourage, luxurious, bump-free rides will allow you to continue your adventures.

Adults can also ride in the back with ample leg room. We know this, because our team members tested it after transporting children to their homes. All came to the conclusion that the Chevy Silverado makes for more comfortable journeys than any airplane rides we have ever taken.

A few short hours later, Mohawk Chevy called to let us know our vehicle was repaired. It was time to say goodbye to kick-free adventures and return to the land of GMC joy with less leg room. While we are grateful to have our original vehicle back, we can’t help but feel that the Chevy Silverado is worth its weight in gold for the passenger seating, ability to handle multiple car seats, turbo engine, and sound system that makes the Gummy Bear Song bearable.

Thank you Mohawk Chevy! At 10:45 pm on Wednesday night, we hope you are still singing the Gummy Bear Song too. 🙂

Maybe after reading this spectacular review they write this off as business expense, and donate the vehicle🙏

In your style, a loaner is an adventure! Love how the most mundane routine becomes full of joy for you and your readers !!💕

Well, now it's 945am, and I AM singing the gummy bear song 🤣 Glad you loved the Silverado 💜

I saw that in the lot 😘😘😘

Alyssa Corbett I thought you might enjoy this.

Our winged friends have arrived and are starting to eclose. That is what it is called when a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis!

All are helping to create a nature-inspired environment for the children we serve in hiding. But these extraordinary creatures are more than just contributors to a serene interior landscape. They are supporters just like you, who are getting ready to help children through their healing process.

These spectacular beings will soon be helping children work through their anxiety right inside the crisis intervention center. Best of all, the children will learn about science in the process. Because the more we know about the world around us, the more significant contributors we can grow up to be.

We have to go for now. Our Monarchs are eclosing! Once their wings are dry, we will post photos. In the meantime, you can help children impacted by crises through their transformation by donating today!

The memorable moment of the day in Schenectady County.

Child: I’m okay, I have Ramen packets.

Team member: You mean Ramen Noodles?

Child: The flavor packets. I can eat those…

Our privilege just gained a new perspective. Please donate to help these children.
