FACES OF PROJECT AUTISM
Volunteering is a win-win situation that helps make the world a better place. Everyone needs a voice and volunteering has provided me with a platform to raise awareness and give back to charities and organizations that have a special place in my heart.
It has assisted me to build my own self-esteem, create long lasting relationships and it just feels so good.
Volunteering has always been a huge part of my life. Growing up there was never a time when our family didn’t volunteer for various organizations. It has become so integral with my day-to-day life that I cannot imagine not giving back. Being able to donate my time to bring happiness to others and see smiling faces every week is so rewarding.
To see the change, you have to be the change! Everything starts with you, and then works outwards. Volunteering brings the change I know we need as a community& it also allows me to grow as a person, friend and ally.
I volunteer with Project Autism because I can see the impact that is being made with the children and the results are truly remarkable. Project Autism has taught me, we are all in this together, this earth is ours and we need to unite, work with each other, support one another and guide each other. I know I’m there to support the kids, but I feel like the kids are teaching me so much about myself and about being a better human being.
It takes a village to raise a child – I believe that and PA lives by that, which is why I love to volunteer at PA. Every child is everyone’s responsibility to nurture and support because they are our future and a reflection of ourselves, so we strive to do our best to give them opportunities and raise awareness. In return, the kids at PA complete me, fill me with joy and laughter and make me love myself. There is so much that they offer and it doesn’t take long to realize that when we invest in them, we invest in ourselves.
Its all about the kids. I enjoy helping out, working one to one with the kids and young adults. Helping them learn. Make a difference. I believe we should all give back and Project Autism us the perfect place to do that.
