Caught Being Awesome
Rett Syndrome is a journey. It can be a long, tough journey. There are good days and bad days -- and then sometimes there is that moment in time when someone comes along and makes it an AWESOME day.
We want to be sure to recognize a whole lotta awesomeness so that our Rett Girls can be sure to feel good all year long. Yep! You get to catch people doing great things!
Who is this for?
People playing a role in the life of a Rett Girl in a place like school who have gone above and beyond.
What kinds of things?
If you are a Rett parent, it might be a special needs teacher that created new boards for the speech generation device without you even asking, or your doctor who gathered the latest Rett Syndrome research for you “just in case” you had not seen it. OR maybe your child’s 1:1 aide organized an amazing game at recess being sure that your daughter was fully included. Who knows, it just might be your next door neighbor that helped her kids set up a lemonade stand and surprised you with the money to make a donation to GP2C in your daughter’s honor.
If you know a Rett Girl, it might be seeing her bus driver make that extra effort to get the temperature just right on the bus, or seeing a peer in school reach out to communicate and help.
All around, there are people and places showing a little bit of awesome, and we want to help you acknowledge them!
Simply fill out the nomination form and let us know a little bit about your nominee and their awesomeness.
What happens when someone is caught being awesome?
Here are a few things we are doing to help you celebrate them:
1. Get 10 free "Caught Being Awesome" postcards in the mail to hand out to folks you want to acknowledge.
2. If you submit their contact info and story, we will contact them plus send them a thank you email and CBA graphic to post online. If they give us permission, we will also share their story on our CBA blog and on Facebook.
In February 2013, our two-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Girl Power 2 Cure (GP2C), their staff, members, and supporters, have become a beacon of light for me and my family. They bring an air of excitement, youthfulness, and fun to a very serious diagnosis.
