Lindley Mayer Featured in Greenville’s Talk Magazine
For someone so young, Lindley Mayer has packed a lot of good into her years. She started her own 501(c)3 charity, LADY Bugs Across America (Lindley’s Alliance for Disabled Youth), inspired by her brother and sister and all disabled youth.She has raised thousands of dollars, contributed countless volunteer hours and says she considers this mission to be her life’s work.
“In the words of Audry Hepburn, ‘I speak for those children who cannot speak for themselves, children who have absolutely nothing but their courage and their smiles, their wits and their dreams.'”
March 6, 2003, was proclaimed “Lindley Mayer Day” by Mayor Knox White, ranking as “the best compliment I’ve ever received,” but her perfect day would include her two favorite things in life–dancing and spending time with her two younger siblings.
It would seem that nothing is too much for this outstanding young woman, but she says there is one thing proved to be scary task.
“Being in a contemporary dance company, I was chosen to do aerial work. Hanging upside down from a high altitude by mere strings while performing was enough to give m butterflies in my stomach!”
