A Milk Giveaway, A Silly Shirt, and Lesson in Faith (His Encouragement)

Our church family has people of all ages and ability levels. Some were children, some of us were a little bit older, and some of us were anywhere in-between. Everyone was able to find a job that they were able to do. Some people were also visually impaired like myself (A friendly reminder: Please do not pet service dogs when they are working). By the time we were done, we had given away 1,727 gallons of milk. It was a truly beautiful thing. We had given away almost 400 gallons of milk an hour!

Ankylosing Spondy What? An Invisible Disease (Aerilyn Medina: Disability Awarness Interview)

I am really excited about my self-made business OARCID Services which stands for Organizing Accessible Resources & Connections on Inclusion & Disability. I really enjoy spreading awareness and advocating about disabilities. I want people to know that they are not alone in their journey, and that people are fighting for accessibility and rights. I hope that I can reach my overall goal of having a community centre where I can employ people with disabilities and really reach others. But for now small baby steps in helping businesses/organizations become more accessible and inclusive.

Praise the Lord with the Ukulele! (His Encouragement)

If you love to make music, then go make music and sing songs to God. If you love to write, then write stories that praise God's Holy Name. If you are called to raise a family, then teach your children to Love the Lord. Whatever passion God has placed in your heart, I pray that you can find a constructive space and a joyous place to use it to bring honor to God's name and fill the world with love.

Jessica Karim: Vlogging to Change the World (Disability Awareness Interview)

Jessica says, "I make YouTube videos. I saw a severe lack of blind college students when I was about to start college, so I decided to make my channel so that I could share my voice and story. Just sitting in front of a camera, and talking about issues that I’m really passionate about is really cathartic for me. It is just really nice to have my own little space on the internet."
