The Gifts of Mobility Foundation started because Tegdra Samuel, the founder, wanted to help families of children with disabilities, as her daughter Jazzmin has cerebral palsy. The upclose and personal challenges have influenced her passion and desire to create an organization specifically for families of children with cerebral palsy. Through sharing her story, giving encouragement, providing equipment, and rendering support  to these families, Tegdra strives to not only be a helping hand, but the face of turning trouble into triumphant joy.  The Gifts of Mobility Foundation has a heart felt mission of creating hope for others by giving adaptive equipment to increase overall physical health and strength.​​​​​​​
