Help Support The Special Olympics

Posted Oct 04 2009 11:14pm
The purpose of the T21 Traveling Afghan Project is to link our families and celebrate the differences we share. I have gotten a great deal of feedback thanking me for putting this project together. Some people don't realize how little it takes to get involved and make a huge difference. The Special Olympics is an awesome organization that you can donate your time and resources to in an effort to become involved with the community.

Donating time to the Special Olympics is an amazing experience for teens, young adults as well as a great way to spend some family time while helping others.

This organization would not exist today without the effort of volunteers.

If you are interested in helping out, check out these ways to become involved:

Get in touch with Special Olympics near you to see what you can do to help.

Be a fan in the stands at a Special Olympics event near you.

Follow Special Olympics online through Twitter, Facebook and our own Fan Community

Donate money to keep Special Olympics programs going.

Contribute five minutes to take the pledge to stop using "retard" as an insult.

Watch a video about a group of Mattel Corp. volunteers or about Mike Cohen, one outstanding coach, and then share it with five friends.

Find out ways you and your church, club or friends can get involved near home. Find the Special Olympics nearest you and invite a speaker to your next get-together.

If you're a college student, check out SO College to get active at your school.

Get in the game by joining Special Olympics Unified Sports®, where people with and without intellectual disabilities train and compete together on the same team.

Know someone with an intellectual disability? Refer them to a Special Olympics program nearby.

Don't sit on your seat, go out and do something great!
