Awakening Minds, Raw Art & A Mother's Wish
My name is Choo Kah Ying. I am a writer/educator, recovered sufferer of manic-depression, and homeschooler of Jean-Sebastien Choo. Sebastien is moderately autistic with significant delays in language. Both of these conditions have inspired me to create Awakening Minds. Its aim is to raise awareness on autism and mood disorders through my books, articles, learning materials, talks, workshops, and consultations.
Despite all the progress that Sebastien and I have made during the eight years of our homeschooling life, he is unlikely to achieve independent functioning in mainstream society. Therefore, before I pass on, it is my dream to offer Sebastien and others like him a strong and loving community that will engage them with a well-rounded programme on a daily basis. This is why I have started A Mother’s Wish that has been principally funded by sales of Sebastien’s water colour paintings — Raw Art.
Support A Mother’s Wish Holiday Programme!
- The costs of this holiday programme are partially covered by “A Mother’s Wish” fund. Sebastien, my son with autism, is a key contributor to this fund through his donations of 30% of the sales of his affordable original paintings to this fund and 90% of the sales of merchandise/corporate gifts featuring his artwork.
We would also like to contribute to your fundraising effort!
