Did you know October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month? If so, well done! If not, well, now you do – and the Library of Congress has a fantastic site full of information all about living and working with disabilities. You can see it all right here: www.loc.gov/disabilityawareness
From Helen Keller to Stevie Wonder, people with disabilities have inspired countless others to reach for the stars. Even the father of invention, Thomas Edison, qualifies as a person with a disability – he went nearly deaf at age 12 and never regained his hearing.
Here at NyNjGoodwill we celebrate the everyday heroes – people who overcome challenges and contribute to society, setting of a chain reaction of empowerment.
Here’s to our everyday heroes – and here’s to a happy National Disability Employment Awareness Month for all!
