What cause can you get behind?
April is Autism Awareness Month and ever since the J-Mac game 11 years ago, I have been very passionate about supporting the autism movement and spreading awareness through AutismUp, a local organization here in Rochester, NY. Do you have a cause that you are passionate about? I strongly suggest that you find a cause and become passionate about helping out any way you can. If you are searching for a cause to get behind (which I strongly suggest), here are some tips to help you out. Enjoy.
- Find something you are passionate about. For me, my heart was touched after the J-Mac game in 2006. Autism soon became something that I had a personal connection to and my passion followed shortly after. What are you passionate about?
- What fits your purpose? This is very similar to asking a business about their mission. What is your purpose in life? Is there a cause remotely close to what you would define as your purpose? The closer the cause is aligned with your life purpose, the more personal joy it will bring you.
- Support your family and friends. If you are struggling to find something you feel really passionate about, ask your friends and family members. They might be able to point you in the right direction or bring you along to a fundraiser/event and transform their passion on to you. Sharing your passion can be very powerful.
- Share with others. Once you have your cause chosen and you get behind it, make sure you share it with others. Not only can they help support, but it will help spread the word and awareness as well.
