Two or more ‘ordinary people’ together can do just as much as a famous person can – that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 7: 13 PM on day 385 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself strawberry yoghurt for breakfast, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – tweet about my campaign some more–still no luck– watch TV, feed myself two slices of pizza for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
Yesterday I was emailing someone about my campaign and I realized that I didn’t need celebrity backing to make a success of it –I have tweeted Oprah, Justin Bieber, Priyanka Chopra and Jodi Picoult over the course of my campaign (Jodi offered to donate some books but unfortunately I promised my parents that I would never give out our home address to people over the internet I really like her we still keep in touch) – because everyone who hears my story is likely to tell one another person and that person will tell one another person and so on and so on it will go my point is sometimes we underestimate our own power and think only famous people can change the world when in reality anyone who bands together with others who have good intentions can change the world. Do you shirk off your social responsibilities just because you’re not a celebrity?
Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://twitter.com/Nisha360
If you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://bit.ly/hC7vOu
Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
hanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
