Since our foundation started as a public speaking campaign, Claire has spoken to thousands of people ranging in age from elementary school students to senior citizens. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information about having her speak at your event.
In addition to personal stories, presentations follow this five step outline:
IT COULD BE YOU - It could be you or a relative who has special needs. Everyone is only one accident away from being differently-abled.
1) SEE - See people as people first.
2) STOP - Stop using derogatory terms to describe others.
3) START - Start having positive interactions with people who are different than yourself.
IT COULD BE YOU - It could be you that leads by example and changes the way people treat people with special needs.
“Music with a Message” can be added to the presentation at the discretion of the organization. Claire sings a song that shows how one act of kindness can change a person's perspective. Her performance of the song can be found at this link:
On this day, Claire spoke to roughly 900 people.
A Spread the Word to End the Word event that Claire organized made the front page of the Stillwater Newspaper.
