If you’re visiting this page.. which you obviously are if you’re reading this.. please scroll down a touch and click on the Social Vibe panel on the right hand side; it’s a charity button that you can click on and money will be donated to my chosen charity/cause, which concentrates its energy on helping people with autism and funding research to find treatments for it.
I guess I was inspired to choose this charity because of my trip to Germany with the Garforth Lions. You see, perhaps naively, I’d never come into contact with people with disabilities and the whole week really opened my eyes to the world out there. It made me realise that not everybody has an easy life, and that there are people out there who have a rough ride to cope with. So this charity is pretty important to me because things like this break my heart now. I know I shouldn’t feel pity or anything, people wouldn’t want me to, but it just disheartens me that the world is actually like this. I will definitely say that the Garforth Lions trip has made me a more compassionate and empathetic person all round.
So please, just click on it and help those with Autism and other disabilities. And, perhaps more importantly, get involved with anything like I did. I recently read one of my posts from 2009 and I put, “I’ll come out of my shell one day this year.” If I can do it, anyone can do it.
Cheers, Brittany 🙂
