How is Sensory Sanctuary different than other charities for Sensory Processing Disorder?
While there are other organizations that are dedicated to Sensory Processing Disorder, most of them apply their resources to research and providing resources and education. We do plan on providing these things as well, but our biggest difference is our mission to provide safety equipment for those who are prone to wandering, eloping, or meltdowns. These things are very often triggered by too much sensory input, or not enough, and we want to help ensure that this disorder does not harm the people living with it.
How many people do you impact with your charitable work?
Since we are a very new organization, we don't know how many we will be able to help. What we can say, is that studies show that anywhere between 1 in 20, and 1 in 6 children live with sensory processing disorder severe enough to impact daily life, and deal with it their whole lives if left without help. We can tell you that our hope is to branch out across the country, and then globally, to help as many people as possible. And with your help, we hope to accomplish that goal.
What if I can't afford a monetary donation, but I still want to help?
There are many ways we could use help in our charity, many of which cost little to nothing. We are always looking for volunteers. We need volunteers for things like security, handing out flyers, hosting and working events, planning events, clerical work, donating homemade goods to our bake sales, purchasing small sensory tools and donating them to those who need them, or simply just spreading the word.
