We all know someone that is disable or might have someone in our family that is disabled, all the way from being blind to having a learning disability.
Disabilities come in many fashions and affect people of all shapes and sizes. When walking down the street you might find yourself staring for a bit or maybe your child stops and looks for awhile, that is because we often don’t teach our kids about people who are disable and what it might be like for them. Its not necessarily a bad thing, its a human thing.
On August 22, 2009 a wonderful event is being held to that will benefit all to understand disabilities and what it is like to have a disability. A Touch of Understanding (ATOU) has a wonderful Youth Force that is having an event Paws with a Cause from 11-1pm at Mahany Park, 1545 Pleasant Grove Blvd in Roseville, Ca. This event will help raise money in the Youth Force’s mission to spread the word about disability awareness to all.
Admission to the Paws with a Cause event is free and there are a variety of things to do to help support this mission:
- Cake Walk
- Food and Drinks
- Face Painting
- A “working dog” demo
- Disc Dog Demonstration by Steve Teer & The Flyin' Irish - featured on Animal Planet and a Raffle!
A special Thank You to our very own Jennifer from Posh Puppy Boutique for donating to this wonderful time!
