It’s a simple, but effective leaflet to help a young man’s disabled birthday party, a disability group in the state of Victoria has announced.
The leaflet, which has been viewed more than one million times, explains that the party, called “We’re Ready”, will feature “lots of balloons, balloons and more balloons”.
“It’s a fun party to have with friends and family and there will be lots of balloons.”
The balloons are to be put on the roof and it’s going to be a very special party for the kids and the adults,” the leaflet states.
The organisers have released a statement to the ABC:The leaflets, which were released under the name “I’m Just Not Ready” have been viewed over 10 million times.”
It is with great joy that we announce that ‘I Am Just Not’ is coming to a Victoria house at the end of this year,” the statement read.”
Our aim is to give a chance for the people who are struggling with the most common issues to celebrate with their friends, family and loved ones.”‘
We’re all going to die’: A man’s leaflet about autismThe leafleting was inspired by the “I am Not a Kid” campaign, which is the brainchild of a Queensland man, John Wills.”
I have spent the last two years in a medically assisted recovery unit, and it has become clear to me that I need help,” the 19-year-old told the ABC.”
This is something that I really want to make a difference to.
I have a disability and it would be great to be able to celebrate my birthday and have fun and not have to worry about the people around me.
“So this is my plan to make sure we celebrate our birthday together, and have balloons.”
In an effort to help others, the man said he would donate balloons to “everyone who needs a birthday celebration”.
The “I Am Not a kid” campaign is designed to raise awareness about the condition, which affects up to 50 per cent of Australians aged between three and 45.
The organisation has previously released a leaflet on the condition called “I Have Autism” which encourages people to “let go of the stigma and get to know their inner child”.
