To all who come here… Believe.
Today is my birthday…this appointment is my gift to myself.
The more I face my fears the more free I become. I know one day I will be through this.
Gradually you feel whole again. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other.
I have found an inner strength I never know I had. I can survive this – you can too.
It is never your fault. Don’t let someone else define your life.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
The lack of respect is one of the root cause of too many problems. Bullying, harassment, violence, depression, sickness, wars and many others. We don’t have a magic wand to make this world instantly respectful but we can all make a difference in our life, our workplace and our community. More respect means better relationships, less employee turnover, less absenteeism, better health, less violence in our community, better grades at school and many other benefits. By promoting respect for others, you promote respect for yourself which is the most important. Join the #iRespect campaign. Together, we can create a culture of respect.
There are multiple ways to show your respect and help out! People from all around the world have joined the movement to express their respect. Anyone can participate simply by downloading the “I Respect…” template, writing what you respect on it and then sharing it. Go to the Share section for more information and for links to our social media.
Another way to support the Campaign is to make a donation. Whether you want to donate $1 dollar or make monthly donations, your help is always appreciated. The Central Alberta Sexual Assault Centre receives more than 550 new clients every year. We assist people without any distinction of their gender, age or background. We offer free services including counseling, education, crisis response, court support and much more.
CASASC also offers organizations and businesses the opportunity to associate their logo with the campaign. In exchange for a donation of $200 or more, we will modify one of your pictures to promote the iRespect Campaign and will reinvest 15% of your donation through a “boost” on Facebook or Twitter. This will allow your business to benefit from more exposure while promoting a message of respect throughout Central Alberta.
We invite you to take a picture of your sign or of you with your sign! Tag the photo, share the post and invite your friends and family to participate. Make sure to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. Also remember to use the hashtags #iRespect and #respectculture !
