I'm off to do breakfast and tasks. I'm happy I got the application for the Alice Modin Award done yesterday. Now I am starting this application:
National award
The Thérèse Casgrain Lifelong Achievement Award is the national award category.
Thérèse Casgrain Lifelong Achievement Award
Nominees in this category are dedicated individuals who have volunteer for at least 20 years and have inspired other volunteers, led volunteer groups or made other exceptional achievements through volunteering. Their contributions may have been made through ongoing commitments to one organization or cause, or separate commitments to a variety of organizations or causes.
Examples of nominees (all examples are fictitious):
When he was 35 years old, Arthur started a shelter when a friend confided in him about the years of abuse she suffered as a child. The shelter, which accommodates up to 16 children, provides short-term services to boys and girls between 10 and 17 years old who have suffered abuse. Now 58 years old, Arthur continues to run the shelter and works tirelessly to educate others in his community about how they can protect children from abuse.
Millie makes weekly visits to residents at the local seniors' home, volunteers at special events that raise funds for development projects and sits on the board of directors for a community not-for-profit organization. She also babysits, lends her car and offers a place to stay to people who need help.
Refer to the biography of the 2016 recipient of the Thérèse Casgrain Lifelong Achievement Award.
****
Ruth Adria is not interested in these award applications.
I am interested.
I feel they are the visible recognition she needs in Alberta where the government and public bodies do not consider her feedback.
For example the Elder Advocates Working Group met with the Justice Minister to ask for a registry. The Ministry has not replied to Ruth Adria's letter. Why not? Because they don't want to do the registry. It's too expensive they say. And yet they spend major bucks on their dumb climate change leadership plan project that is only for show. It's a matter of priorities for government. Seniors are not the priority.
It's time seniors became the priority. Ruth Adria has worked for this neglected group even when it was not fashionable to do this. It's time we all supported her and her work. We're all going to be seniors one day. Our parents are probably seniors. We need to help them. One way to do this is to support their work and recognize their efforts. Here's why:
Renée Laporte, a Human Rights Champion recipient in 2015, explains what the award means to her, “When you are an advocate, you face stigma and discrimination. You feel the hate marginalized communities face, and that drives you to work harder to see them have their rights upheld.” She was recognised for her work of over a decade as an educational assistant, inclusion innovator and pioneer in fostering high risk young women.
