LIFESTYLE

Faces of Philanthropy: BluePath Service Dogs

Blue is the color of clear skies, tranquil waters, and refreshing pools. It’s also the color associated with autism—and the color of the vests BluePath service dogs wear when they’re working. Launched at the end of 2016, BluePath places service dogs with children who have autism—totally free of charge. For families, “A service dog is ‘hope in a blue vest.’” Read More…

The Magic of Paper

“In this digital age, there is nothing as warm and personal as a handwritten note on an exquisite piece of brightly colored, beautifully textured stationery. It takes an ordinary gesture and makes it a celebratory one. It is wonderful to reach into your mailbox to find that gorgeous handwritten envelope.” Read More…

LOOK Health and Fitness: Dairy is Off the Table

“Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein. I want to profess; I am not a nutritionist. I am a fitness enthusiast/junkie. Even if I have had five glasses of wine and an entire gluten/dairy laden pizza, I will still wake up the next day and follow my fitness regimen. However, with that said, one can never expect to achieve their weight loss goal if only exercising. Consumption is everything! Read More…

Taking The Helm On Plastic Pollution

Which is scarier, the thought of a first-time sailor at the helm of a 70-foot ketch or the amount of seen or the thought of all the unseen plastic proliferating our lands and waters? For some – it maybe be the first, for many – it’s the latter! Read More…

Faces of Philanthropy: Special Education Legal Fund (S.E.L.F)

Autism. Dyslexia. Speech and language delay. Physical disabilities. Mental health challenges. Special education is complex – with its own language, acronyms, timelines, and legal standards. Ten years ago, Christine Lai and Ulrika Drinkall entered this arcane world to advocate on behalf of their own children. They came out the other side informed, energized, and with a mission. Last year, they formed the Special Education Legal Fund (S.E.L.F). Initially, S.E.L.F. only provided grants for legal support to families in need with children in the special education system. But as word of their organization spread, S.E.L.F. expanded to include even more resources. “Without our support, these families would have had no recourse in the legal system for what was happening with their children,” says Christine.

Faces of Philanthropy: Regional Hospice and Cynthia Emiry Roy

“We speak openly about what each patient wants and then honor his or her unique end of life journey,” says Cynthia Emiry Roy, MS, LCSW, CHA. Honesty, peace, compassion, dignity are more than words to Cynthia—they are the hallmarks of Regional Hospice, the first and largest nonprofit hospice in Western Connecticut. Whether taking care of patients in their own home or in the 36,000 square foot Center for Comfort Care and Healing, Cynthia and her staff push to make sure each patient’s last days are filled with grace and warmth.
