Sunshine Coast author Bronwyn Anderson has raised $1,600 for Endeavour Foundation through the launch of her thought-provoking children’s book, “Hi, what’s your name are we the same?”
Designed to promote acceptance and understanding about disability for young readers, the book is about children who are not defined by social labels, but by their character, different qualities, and talents.
Bronwyn, a local special education teacher, said that she was delighted to have been able to support Endeavour Foundation while introducing the community to some important messages about disability.
“The book focuses on children with a variety of different disabilities and shows that they are each unique and happy.
“The aim is to encourage children to be accepting of difference and learn to have a positive image of people with a disability.
“I’m so delighted by the response to this book, and hopeful that it can help to change how we, as a society, think and talk about these issues.”
Endeavour Foundation area committee chair, Garry Bates, said that the book ‘embodies all that Endeavour Foundation stands for – inclusivity and empowerment’.
“Endeavour Foundation grew from the efforts of parents in the early 1950s who shared this book’s philosophy that children – regardless of their ability – are content in their own skin.
“As an organisation Endeavour Foundation remains committed to ensuring that the people we support stay at the centre of everything we do. That belief is now being echoed far and wide as we prepare to enter an exciting new era under the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Our future will be all about putting people with a disability and their families in control of their future.
“On the Sunshine Coast alone we are currently privileged to support over 330 people. The NDIS means they can look forward to being increasingly involved in their community and being part of our social fabric.
“And that’s where money – such as that being donated by Bronwyn – will be directly invested. In assisting countless people with a disability to improve the quality of their lives.”
