I've been working with local Minnesota State University Moorhead students on their caregiving contest. I spoke to a nice group of caregivers, last evening, due to their efforts. These students did an amazing job of gathering together caregivers and getting publicity (even television) for it. I applaud their efforts.
Fellow students, from the University of Oregon, have noted my caregiving site and asked if I could publicize their efforts, as well. I'm happy to do that. I'm thrilled to see young people spreading the word to caregivers that help is available. I do believe the students are learning more than PR.
This is part of the note I received for the University of Oregon students.
"Family Caregiving…it's not all up to you( familycaregiving101.org ) is a new Web site that provides resources and encouragement to caregivers and their families. As a University of Oregon student representing FC101 in Lane County, my aim is to raise awareness of family caregiving and help caregivers to understand that they are not alone. I believe that you share this goal and that your readers would benefit from this resource. I would be grateful if you would visit our website at familycaregiving101.org/team55 and consider posting it in the "Links" section of your website. Thank you for your time."
