Totally broke my heart. Nothing I did worked; her favorite music made her cry harder, the toys were pushed away and I was at a loss. Usually this young lady and I have a blast. She LOVES her time with me. But today, she could have used someone who is a bit better than I am at making someone in pain smile. Thought of Will and someone else who would've had her laughing, dancing and forgetting that she was in a torture contraption.

To hold a celebration of those that have passed through Centrepointe's doors and have not only found a secure life but have excelled at it is perhaps the greatest testimony to Centrepointe and what it does and continues to do.
And this is why I absolutely love seeing this man in action. His heart is always engaged, helping his brain come up with ways to make the lives of those less fortunate just a little bit easier. The reward of seeing the results of his involvement must be the best feeling ever. Yet another reason why in an alternate universe he would make an excellent teacher for children with special needs.

Prince William is shining a spotlight on an issue that was important to his late mother, Princess Diana: homeless youth in England.

On Thursday, the prince, 33, gave a speech at the first annual Centrepoint awards in London. The royal has been a patron of the organization, which provides a safe place to live for thousands of young people every year, since 2005.

“Ten years ago, Centrepoint was one of the first charities that I officially became associated with,” the prince said in his speech. “During that time, I have seen the charity adapt to the challenges of tackling youth homelessness with continued optimism and enthusiasm.”

Well... Sounds to me like perhaps next time you should try watching this someone in ACGAS on the IPad with this special young lady.

Yep. We'll be using that to get her to use the speech switch.

Let me know how that goes! I'm sure she'll love it. Bet someone else would / will be thrilled if it works! What a great idea! It would also be a good idea if you ever have to do vision during stander time again!

Prince William invited some stars to light up Kensington Palace on Thursday night as he hosted a gala night for one of his favorite causes – putting an end to homelessness.

“This evening is a celebration of everything young people are capable of when they are given the support that they need,” William said in a moving speech at the event. “The young people of Centrepoint have come through experiences that could have broken the resolve of any one of us.”

Ellie Goulding and Nile Rodgers were among the celebrities raising money for the Centrepoint gala event.

Prince William has called for action to end the “shameful” scale of youth homelessness in London.

At a star-studded fundraiser for the youth homeless charity Centrepoint at Kensington Palace last night, he said society must do more to stop the crisis of young people living on the streets.

“This Christmas as many as 25,000 young people will be at risk of homelessness,” the prince said.

“And remember this, behind that appalling statistic is a human being not much older than many of our children and grandchildren, who is alone, frightened and confronted with impossible choices.

The Duke of Cambridge backs the setting-up of a helpline for young people facing homelessness as The Independent launches its Christmas appeal to help the charity Centrepoint

Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge has told Independent readers they have “the chance to save young lives” as he issued a special message to mark the start of this website’s Christmas Appeal to combat youth homelessness in the UK.

For the appeal, The Independent is partnering with Centrepoint, the youth homeless charity of which Prince William is patron, to help launch a helpline for 16- to 25-year-olds who find themselves either homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Prince William today thanked Evening Standard readers for their “incredible” support as our Christmas Appeal, in aid of Centrepoint’s Young and Homeless Helpline, smashed the £1 million barrier in record time.

To mark the fundraising milestone the Duke of Cambridge welcomed former Centrepoint residents to Kensington Palace for a photoshoot.

“As Centrepoint’s patron the Duke has heard countless stories of how homelessness can blight young lives,” said a Palace spokesman.

“The support for this project so far is incredible as it means young people can get the help they need when they most need it. Thank you.”

Shooting pictures of Prince William in his own front garden at Kensington Palace would be a dream commission for any photographer, let alone one just starting out.

For Samia Meah, 26, it is the latest step on an extraordinary journey from becoming homeless at the age of 16.

She was offered the opportunity to photograph the Duke, former Centrepoint resident Kumba Kpakima and Evening Standard proprietor Evgeny Lebedev to mark the newspaper’s Christmas Appeal for the charity’s Young & Homeless Helpline passing £1 million.
