This week’s chat covered many topics: from upcoming announcements, to member’s ongoing activities, to a discussion of plans for Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month in March and effective awareness. This just further illustrates the #CPChatNow community’s busy and active nature.
I am your Interim Co-Host, Devin Axtman, and I will be taking you along on this week’s recap. If you like what you see and haven’t joined in a chat yet, you can join us every Wednesday at 8 PM Eastern. We also do a monthly Google Hangout.
Next week is a busy week for #CPChatNow! First, the awesome Maysoon Zayid will be leading a focus chat next Wednesday, the 15th. Also, be sure to check out her amazing TED Talk on life with CP.
Zach announced February’s Google Hangout for Thursday the 16th
Talk soon shifted to difficulties and everyday stresses members were experiencing in their lives. Blemi is busy working on a benefit concert.
Zach soon asked if anyone had any plans for Cerebral Palsy Awareness month in March
This led to a discussion between Zach and I about what creates effective awareness.
Finally, #CPChatNow member, Hamda Jamal, discussed her goal of having her own CP foundation in her home country one day to fill the void left by the lack of awareness organizations.
Now for this week’s extend-the-conversation question: What do you feel is necessary for effective disability awareness? Please post some things you feel are necessary in the comments.
Thanks for reading and your interest in #CPChatNow.
