Neighbors Helping Neighbors: Autism Awareness

Facebook

Glenn and I have teamed up with Grocery Tree next to Tully’s in the University Plaza in Binghamton and I couldn’t be more pumped up for the reason why.

There are a lot of people in our community struggling to make ends meet and if we don’t help them, who will?  Sometimes it’s easier to sit back and watch as someone struggles, but you know what?  The feeling of accomplishment and gratification is overwhelming when you do something for someone with no expectation of getting anything in return. And I’ll tell you- when you share kindness, kindness has a tenancy to come back to you.

April is Autism Awareness month and I’d like to take a minute to tell you about an incredible woman. Christine Dunlap is a single Mom from Greene who has not one, but two children with autism.  To make life even harder, Christine was in a horrible car accident that left her handicapped.  It’d be easy for Christine to sit back and sulk about the obstacles that life has thrown at her, but instead she holds her head high.  Not only does Christine find time to juggle multiple surgeries around carrying for her autistic children, but Christine is a giver.  Christine isn’t happy unless she’s doing something to bring cheer to someone’s day.  We thought it was time to give back to this special, courageous and strong woman.

You’re invited to join me and Glenn at Grocery Tree next to Tully’s inside University Plaza in Binghatmon on Thursday April 25th from 4pm-6pm25% of every Yogurtlicious frozen yogurt sale will be given to Christine to help with medical bills and daily living needs of her two autistic children.

Neighbors helping neighbors.  Isn’t that what it’s really all about?
