Riccio-Pick-Me-Ups is a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization that brings inspiration, joy, financial aid and awareness for families facing medical and financial hardships.  All of this love was created by our friend of the Ocean County Breakfast Show Amara Riccio.Her name might not be familiar to you, but write this name down, Amara Riccio.  She's an amazing young lady we met through Children's Specialized Hospital.   In a split second her life changed forever while crossing a street and being struck by a car.  She has a Traumatic Brain Injury and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. She learned to redirect her creative energies from dance/acro to making homemade cards/crafts, writing and using her skills to help others in need.  When we met her she couldn't walk without the help of her Mom and basically she had to start all over again, and she did.  She's truly amazing!  With her spirit and love from her family and so much good in her heart, she is dancing again and bringing so much good throughout Ocean and Monmouth Counties.

It's Riccio-Pick-Me-Ups 1st annual community showcase!
