Number 19 – Sweets for special needs children charity

Earlier today a lady knocked on the door raising money for children with special needs by selling sweets. I bought some, but then decided to give the sweets to my step-sister-in-law (I am vegetarian and they had gelatine in them).

Even though that technically counts as an altruistic act , I wanted to make the act a bit more special and so also spent some time learning about different special needs. I decided to particularly read about intellectual disabilities because of joining the befriending programme with Gail (post ‘Number 14’).
