Some of you have poked me in the last month asking why I am
not blogging as frequently. Well, truth be told I have again been suffering
with a back issue, which makes it oh so painful to sit, stand, walk or even lie
down. So besides being a touch grouchy, my working and sitting
have concurrently waned, making me less likely to write.
For this I apologize
and have taken action to get my pesky and incredibly painful disk fixed
tomorrow Vis a Vis back surgery.
However, I must write this blog to you today because it is
the only time of the year that I ask you for money.
I want to tell you about a group of kids in an organization
called S.A.Y. (Stuttering Association For The Young) who are among 70 million
people who stutter on a daily basis, including
5% OF ALL CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD.
Young people who stutter often face unimaginable fear, pain
and cruelty from a world that doesn't seem to understand them.
Over time they recoil from the world, silencing themselves
to hide their stutter, embarrassment and shame. Young people who stutter may
also feel incredibly isolated and alone and many face daily teasing, ridicule and
Since 2001, SAY has offered comprehensive innovative
programs that address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering.
Our Mission is to
empower young people who stutter and inspire the world to treat them with
respect and compassion so they can achieve their dreams.Our Vision is to
live in a world where every voice matters.
The Need. This year alone SAY will award over $400,000
in financial aid to families in need. To date, NO child has been turned away
due to a family’s inability to pay.
Your support helps
SAY continue this important legacy. Won’t you be a part of the solution and
make sure that every child, everywhere, has a voice.
On April 27th,
2015, we will be hosting our 13th annual benefit gala at the Skirball
Center for the Performing Arts in NYC, NY.
