THE STORY:

THIS IS PAUL'S STORY. I LOVE HIM AND I LOVE THAT HE IS DOING THIS.
PLEASE SUPORT HIM. I'M GOING TO. AND THEN I'M GOING TO PASS IT ON TO ALL MY FRIENDS

It is estimated that more than 60 million people in the world stutter. Often, people who stutter are misidentified as being stupid or having a nervous disorder. At Our Time, an environment of unconditional acceptance allows young people who stutter to transform that fear and shame into confidence and self-esteem.

Based in New York City, Our Time Theatre Company is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing an artistic home for young people who stutter. Our Time offers an environment free from ridicule where young people who stutter discover the joy of creating and performing original theatre and music. The charity also created Camp Our Time (photos & video on the left). This camp helps kids who stutter develop self-esteem. Campers leave with improved communication skills, valuable friendships and encouragement.

The Our Time company is comprised of young people who stutter ages 8-18, who study acting, singing, playwriting, drumming, and dance with professional artists. Exercising these skills, the company members create original plays and music which they perform in New York City and around the world. Through its performances, Our Time educates people about the challenges and misconceptions of stuttering using theatre as a tool to demonstrate the vast capabilities of a group of people that is often misunderstood.

I was asked to participate in one of the plays along with the kid a few years ago and now, I am a Board Member at Our Time and couldn't be more proud.

To see these kids get in front of an audience and speak, which is difficult for anyone, is incredibly moving. What they do just speaks to the power of joining a group and gaining confidence.

Please join me in supporting this organization along with the camp. Even the smallest donation makes a huge difference. These kids are really putting themselves out there to meet people who accept them for who they are and want to express themselves. Our Time serves all its members free of charge and depends on individuals and institutions to help sustain the vital work of their company. Please help out so we can continue to let these kids have a voice.

Thanks, Paul
