#GIVINGTUESDAY for Mikayla's bday ~ | Donate here...


An acronym for the Voice OInclusion for Children Everywhere, Mikayla’s Voice is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that inspires kids of all abilities to share the message of inclusion. Having never spoken a word, with the help of other children, Mikayla is using her “voice” to:

  • Inspire children and young adults to embrace individuals of all abilities.
  • Empower them to create cultural change by teaching others to include everyone.
  • Educate our community about the meaning and importance of inclusion.

“I will never forget Mikayla.  I will be her voice.”
2nd grade teacher.
