Recently, I went on a trip into the mountains organised by Sense International Romania together with 19 young people with deafblindness. I wanted to understand them better, to enter their world with out colour or sound, if only for a little bit.
With my eyes covered, using a red and white cane in my right hand, I walked a few meters. After the first steps with no visual clues, the legs I only rely on when hiking because unsecure. A few more steps later, I got completely confused and lost direction. Minutes seemed as long as a dark night, I couldn't wait to see again.
So I decided that this year I would donate my birthday to children and young people who canno rely on their sight, hearing and, sometimes, legs. I wish that we are by their side on my birthday, December 5th, as well as in all other days.
The most beautiful gift you can make to me is a donation for Sense International Romania. Your gift for me will turn into support for them: trips and activities that challenge tem and help them feel included.
Thank you for your generosity and I wish you to enjoy everything you live, see and hear!
