Building relationships that make the difference

Sam Warne – A Friend Like Mine

One of our support workers, Samantha Warne, has written a children’s book called “A Friend Like Mine” all about inclusivity for people with disabilities.  It’s a story about making friends, and why disability shouldn’t get in the way.  It’s going to be a fantastic book and the message is so powerful for kids and adults alike all across the world.

Directions is sponsoring the project, and Sam is also looking for further funds to assist with the publishing.  All money raised is going to publishing costs and to fund a project based around the book which will involve teaching inclusivity and friendship across a wide array of WA primary schools.  Any extra funds raised, including surplus profit from sales, will go towards treatment and therapy for the wonderful little boy with Cerebral Palsy who inspired the book.
