You Squared Media Vice President Clarence Estes joins Including Kids’ distinguished Board of Directors as the annual campaign chair for 2015. Including Kids provides research-based behavioral intervention and instruction for children and young adults with autism and other related delays. While emphasizing the importance of becoming productive citizens, Including Kids cultivates learning and develops student’s social skills for improved inclusion in the community.
As a dedicated volunteer the last two years, Estes developed a passion for helping the organization. “I’m thrilled with the opportunity to dig deeper and play a larger role. This group improves the lives of kids and young adults across Houston,” Estes said. “I’m going to reach out to my network and encourage prominent individuals and successful business leaders to support this organization by donating their time and their funds,” Estes explained.
As a Houston media executive, Estes leverages long-standing personal and professional relationships to gain additional support and donations for Including Kids. Houston Texans Brian Cushing recently donated Houston Texans jerseys and game tickets to a close friend with a child in the program. Brian Cushing is the official spokesperson for First Community Credit Union, a You Squared Media client. “Many important people in Houston have big hearts and significant resources,” Estes added.
You Squared Media President Tracey Cleckler said, “Whether it’s Including Kids or his agency clients, Clarence has a passion for helping others.” Tracey added, “Including Kids builds these kids a stronger foundation for a brighter future. We’re honored to support Clarence as he lends his time and talent helping the organization grow.”
Including Kids serves more than 150 families a year from 12 different area counties. Building on their 11 years in operation, the organization plans to help more children by building additional schools.
