It started with trying to change my friend’s world.
My friend is a young, single working woman… and she has a disability. I encouraged her to try some of the big dating sites and she did, but she didn’t know how to put her unique situation out there in the online world nor did most people know how to respond. She just didn’t feel comfortable. We then checked out a few disability dating websites. We found those sites are usually exclusive to those with disabilities and some even go as far to match you based on your disability. Being in a relatable online community is nice but my friend is not her disability! To me, that was the same as telling her to date another brunette just because they had the same hair color. That irked me.
Even more irksome, many of the disability dating sites seemed to be targeting the niche as a profit-seeking venture instead of a people-helping one. I want to help my friend and I want to help you. And I don’t want to stop there.
What started as a small act of helping my friend find love, grew into a mission to help the entire disability dating community, and then that mission grew again. It grew into wanting to help a world in need of one of the most powerful forms of love: charity. While helping people find love, we will also give love by donating half of our profits to charities and those in need within the disabled community.
After all, why limit what love can do? Let’s take away the restraints and show that love is life-changing and world-changing. Let’s show what love is able to do.
