Sanjay Shah: Giving Back

I can’t tell you how proud I am of Sanjay Shah and his wife for their involvement in Autism Rocks, an event that has special importance to them, as they have a child of their own, a son, with autism. They are looking to help out others that have children with autism and they want to raise awareness and get donations to look into further research on this event. I’ve often said that knowledge is power and the more we know about things, the better off we are in the long run. I think we could all learn a thing or two about autism from this event or from picking up a book.

I know I’m guilty of it sometimes, but I get so wrapped up in my own world that I don’t take enough time to understand others and what they are going through and how they are feeling. Sometimes we need to take a step back from ourselves, learn about others, and be interested in what they have to say, what they have to share, and what their life story is. Everyone is interesting and everyone has something they want to say. You just have to be willing to listen and have an open mind to what they are saying. You can’t be judgemental.

As Sanjay Shah Denmark and his wife Usha know, when you have a child with autism, there are tons of challenges that come with it. However, they want people to change the way they look at children with autism and give them a little bit more respect and understanding. Instead of ignoring them or perhaps thinking differently of them, it is important to know why they act the way they do and what causes it and where it comes from and the root of the problem. That is why Sanjay loves to give back, as he knows that not only are the donations helping, but so is the discussion that is being raised.

According to his wife, the event will feature laser tag, crazy golf, zip line, bouncy castle, horse rides, rodeo bull, face painting, inflatable rides, barbecue and a petting zoo. Now, I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a great time to me! In addition to all of that, you also get to hear music from Tyga and Flo Rida. Everyone is doing their part to make this year’s event the most special one they have ever had!
