Recently some friends of ours put on a fund raiser for Epilepsy Awareness. This gave us the great idea to help them with their cause for this months donation.
We decided to assist them and direct our donation to Life Without Barriers. (http://www.lwb.org.au/)
They are a great organization that is helping many people throughout Australia.
Their values are as follows.
“Who we are is defined not just by how we look and talk but more importantly by what we do and our values.
For us relationships come first. It’s more than just working together, it’s understanding one another, making lasting connections and building trust. We help clients to believe in themselves again. Our relationships are strong and enduring.
We also know the importance of imagination and what works but we are always open to new ways of doing things- from our clients, from team members. And we do so openly and willingly.
We are courageous and we stand up for what we believe in. We are people with strong opinions on what’s right for our clients and communities in which we operate. We speak up on behalf of our clients and encourage them to have the confidence to speak up for themselves.
We are respectful of others’ viewpoints and try to see the world from the perspective of others.
We respond appropriately and promptly to individual and community needs and we are not afraid to get engaged and ‘get our hands dirty’ in order to find a solution.
We work together to deliver our services through demonstrating our values. “
A large 10% of the population are at risk of experiencing a seizure during their lifetime and 3-4% will generally go on to be diagnosed with Epilepsy.
We are always passionate about organizations that want to help out for the greater good of humanity, so please check out this organization and what they are doing within the community.
