Casual Day Side by Side at Home Youth Day Concert 2020
Hi guys, don't worry if you missed our Side by Side at Home Concert 2020 on Youth Day; here's a link to the amazing performances.
We are still collecting donations and every cent helps us raise funds for Casual Day and Persons with Disabilities affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
A beautiful lesson in hope
I spotted this lonely flower on the premises of APD. Growing in an inhospitable environment in the parking lot between stone and rock, it stood beautifully tall with its face set to the sun.
It reminded me of hope - a powerful and resilient quality giving us the ability to emerge from difficulties in our lives and enabling us to stand tall with our smiling faces to the sun.
It's this quality of hope that keeps us pushing forward despite the challenges we face at APD. We hope that things will always get better. We hope that people will open their hearts and pockets to support us. And we hope that together we can make a real difference in the lives of those with disabilities.
Yes, hope will continue to give us the determination to care for those we love dearly.
