According to reports from the Norfolk Foundation, the number of donations made to charities has decreased by nearly 20 percent since last year.
Contributions reportedly fell from $170.1 million in 2005 to $137.7 million in 2006.
“I get a sense from our donors that people are not feeling confident,” explains Sharon Q. Adams, director of the Virginia Beach Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “ I don’t know if it’s oil or the war. Greenspan talked about the irrational exuberance. This may be the irrational pessimism.”
There are various programs, groups and charities that cater to those living with cerebral palsy, their caretakers and their families.
Organizations like the March of Dimes and United CP have created specific fundraisers and gift-giving programs that help benefit those who are disabled.
Not only do these types of organizations help fund research for cerebral palsy, but they also help the families of children who are living with the disability.
New advances are always being made and with the help of donations, volunteers and general support from the American public, doctors and researchers can get one step closer to finding better treatments for cerebral palsy and for those who are born prematurely.
Research shows that in the U.S. more than 490,000 babies were born prematurely during 2003 alone.
Since then, the number has increased and many of these infants are at risk for developing cerebral palsy and other similar life-altering disabilities.
