MARCH 2020 TOUCH OF HOPE SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS ANNOUNCED!
At TouchPoint Solution, we believe in giving back. This means every month, we give away dozens of TouchPoints via our Touch of Hope, a scholarship program for individuals and families with financial need who seek to improve their lives through applied neuroscience. To date, we have given away hundreds of TouchPoints to deserving families.
“I received a pair of TouchPoints as part of the scholarship program. I am a grad student who struggles with anxiety and who didn't have enough money to order my own pair. Because of a Touch of Hopes, I was able to use TouchPoints to help with my anxiety and to help me sleep...a crucial thing for a grad student!! I am deeply grateful for the product and Team TouchPoint’s generosity.”– Elias Lawliet, Touch of Hope Scholarship Recipient
Rachel is a parent who provides the majority of the parenting care and homeschooling for a daughter with an autism spectrum disorder, as well as two daughters with anxiety. She provides her home as a space for many home school classes and activities that have multiple families involved including the lending and borrowing from each other of life resources. She wants to be able to offer TouchPoints to her children for their difficulty in calming, and also to let other families with children who may benefit in her community try them to see if they feel it would be a proper fit. Her philosophy is that it takes a village to raise children, and especially more so if they are children who are not currently able to fit into the school system while still thriving. We're happy to help her share TouchPoints.
Andru grew up a gay person in a non-embracing conservative Christian family. This instilled in him a tremendous amount of shame and social anxiety. He was looking for a healthy solution to help ease the struggle and is happy to have been awarded TouchPoints.
Maggie is a sophomore in college and has extreme anxiety coupled with Autism Spectrum Disorder. A lot of this stems from school work and social situations, but she's also constantly worrying about being away from her family. Now she's stressed because her mother is ill, she's lost her job, and her school has moved to online classes due to the coronavirus. She knows they're not a cure-all, but she believes TouchPoints may help her cope with a lot of the stress she's experiencing. We're happy to award her with a set.
