Changing the World: December 19 – Blind Waiters


I won’t dwell too long on this suggestion – not because I don’t want to support the cause, which is to support blind people to find employment as waiters. There doesn’t seem to be an Australian or for that matter, a widely global application of the idea.

In several European cities there are restaurants which are in darkness, giving employment opportunities for the blind and increasing awareness of what it is like to be blind.

Changing the World: December 4 – Civil Rights Awareness and Action


The suggestion for today is about raising awareness of civil rights and actively seeking to do something about the rights of people that maybe being abused. Again, this is a very worthwhile cause and is something I would seek to do at every opportunity.

Changing the World: December 3 – Improving Disability Access


The suggestion for today is about working to improve access for disabled people to facilities and services that other people have access to. This is a great cause and is one I support – though I don’t participate in the actual group being promoted in the book. I certainly don’t have any problem with the group being promoted, but do believe in improving access for disabled people.
