Aside from sponsorships, the best kind of support comes from the community. Most battles are won by those who are passionate about the cause. When something has personally affected yourself or a loved one, it changes you. You push for reform.

My aim is high but I fiercely believe we can do this. By sharing our stories, involving loved ones, and embracing our local communities, this can all be made possible. Speak to your local newspapers, reach out to your local t.v. stations, involve your workplace. Just by doing this you will be touching lives and some will be so moved, they will wholeheartedly give back.
