As I go through this phase of my life, I feel I have accomplished some things that are very significant for me. I may be just over-estimating my measure of success but still, I owe myself that for working hard after all these years.
Dine has commented in a recent post I wrote about me making an advocacy in helping those who need help regarding getting or giving services to the families of children with special needs who cannot afford the
exorbitant sky-high fees that the therapy centers (and therapists) charge.
Truth is, there are a lot of families with children who are in need of these services and they do not even know that these services exist. If they do, they probably wouldn’t be able to afford these anyway.
The Weekly Question #13 for this week will focus on dreams: the dream for others.
We may not be as rich as other people, nor can we even have resources like others have, but we can dream for others, can we? I know we do, even if sometimes we feel we also need help but in some ways, we are more fortunate than others. The fact that we are online and blogging about our thoughts tell us that it is so.
We dream of setting our sights to an advocacy or perhaps getting involved or maybe even putting up a foundation to help those people who have touched our hearts and moved us to tears.
We may not have realized this yet but deep within us, we care and we want to do something about it. This may not be the time for it yet but we will know when it is the right time.
Weekly Question #13
If you were to decide what advocacy would you like to campaign for as an advocate or being involved in a foundation, what sector of the society would you like to serve?
If I were to support an advocacy or a foundation, that would be setting time aside to help families with special needs children who cannot afford getting services for the children due to financial constrains. I would like to focus on the families because they are the ones who know their children best and who can help their children the most.
By keeping them informed. By letting them know that they can do things for their children even without spending a fortune for therapy services.
To those who haven’t been given evaluation/assessment, these services will be given to them. Then a plan of action involving their families can be done so that they can maximize using strategies to help their children in the day to day management, involving the different issues that they need to address.
I know its a long shot to becoming a reality but still, I can dream, can I?
