We often take daily conveniences in life for granted and overlook the fact that 1 in every 7 Canadians struggle with a disability.

I have been searching for a way to give back to something I am both passionate in and can relate to. When I was presented the opportunity to raise money for Easter Seals (an organization dedicated to fully enhancing the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination of Canadians with disabilities), I was intrigued. On September 8th 2014, I will be rappelling down a 20 story building in efforts to raise money for a cause that is very dear to me.

I have been searching for a way to give back to something I am both passionate in and can relate to. When I was presented the opportunity to raise money for Easter Seals (an organization dedicated to fully enhancing the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination of Canadians with disabilities), I was intrigued. On September 8th 2014, I will be rappelling down a 20 story building in efforts to raise money for a cause that is very dear to me. STEPHANIE WIRIAHARDJA I graduated from Simon Fraser University with a degree in Interactive Arts and Technology in 2012. I currently work at Hootsuite as the Global Ambassador Lead and frequently visit SFU Surrey as a guest lecturer. Recently, I was noted as Top 24 Under 24 in Vancouver, spoke at TEDxKids@BC, and received a few social media and community management awards. DROP ZONE & EASTER SEALS FOUNDATION Drop Zone Superheroes do more than just defy gravity by scaling a skyscraper, they help hundreds of kids with disabilities by raising much needed funds. Easter Seals is Canada’s largest local provider of programs, services, issues-leadership and development for the disability community. The charitable Registration Number for the Vancouver event is 11921 7248 RR0001. 2012 Expenditures: $581,603 Programs 0% 0% 1% 5% 93% Fundraising Management and Admin Gifts to Qualified Donees Other SOURCE: Chimp.net BACKGROUND STORY My cousin, Stasia, was diagnosed with autism at a very young age. An unfortunate head injury as a baby has resulted in Stasia spending the last 18 years in a mental and physical battle with herself. Today Stasia cannnot speak, cannot walk, and cannot eat by herself but holds dearly onto one thing: Hope. Everyday Stasia's family pushes her to the limit through various classes and courses. At times it is painful to see Stasia suffer but after each session, hope is renewed as we can see her eyes glow with happiness as her motor skills slowly improve. BUT WE OFTEN FORGET TO USE OUR SUPERPOWERS TO HELP OTHERS WE ARE ALL SUPERHEROES SFU <<>> TO DONATE: http://ow.ly/xQqe0
