Guess who? No this isn’t Zach. It’s your other #CPChatNow co-pilot Blake Henry. I am excited to bring you the recap from the community service focus chat I led last week.
The live weekly cerebral palsy Twitter chat gives our community a reason to get excited about Wednesdays. This past week my expertise shined as I facilitated a focus chat on community service.
The focus chat provided an opportunity to learn more about Community Service & Community Advocacy.
Personally I found learning more about community service an engaging and rewarding experience. After all while cerebral palsy creates commonalities within our community. Community service can be done by anyone in a wide variety of fields and brings out the best in people.
Human nature dictation decrees we each maintain the ability to make the world around us a better place. My mission is to continue making the world a better place one action at a time, you can get involved in the mission too! I left the community with several resources and thought provoking questions to get us involved.
A lot of times we get to a volunteer site and we are surprised by a number of things, whether that is seeing friends we were not expecting or the impact is greater than expected. Many had a lot to say.
Lastly, do not forget about our Google Hangout this week on Thursday.
Sure, not all attempts to make the world a better place will be positive. Yet if your actions just help one person, you made an impact in that community. Thus let me ask as this week’s extend-the-conversation question,
“Describe a person you’ve encountered in the community who made a strong impression on you, positive or negative ”
