Our Clients Do Amazing Things.
Some save lives, some help people find meaning again, some give people the freedom to be themselves. One of them is Margie at Celebrating Abilities Melbourne Vic- Non-Profit. This is a charity that helps people with disabilities to find joy, health, and mindfulness through fitness.
Margie donates her time working with people with downs syndrome, autism, paraplegics, MS, and more, helping them to exercise, sometimes for the first time. I’ve seen Margie work with a non-verbal autistic boy, getting him to dance and laugh for a solid hour.
Work with a young woman in a wheelchair, get into a hammock and do aerial yoga. Margie has a vision and pushes the boundaries of what people think their limits are. What she and the charity do, give people hope and purpose. It’s incredibly inspiring.
Today, Margie presented us with a certificate of thanks for the volunteer work Misfit Digital has done to help the charity this year. It’s people like Margie that inspire us daily to help make this world a better place.
We can’t wait to help Margie grow this incredibly unique charity in 2020 and beyond. Thanks for letting us be part of this ride, Margie. 💕

My name is Judeland. I would like to share his story with you which happened during the Civil War in Sri Lanka on September 24th, 1996. My family and I will never forget that day. It was the night of September 23rd, 1996, there was a fight in the village. Thinking it was too dangerous to leave during the night, we stayed until morning. Once daylight broke, we decided we had to make a run for safety. I jumped on my bicycle and peddled fast down the road, hearing a strange noise, getting close and closer behind me. The next thing I knew a bomb had exploded; a piece hit me in the lower back – I was in shock! I tried to move but the pain was terrible. I couldn’t move my legs. This war gave me a new name: Paraplegic T12. It’s been 21 years since my accident, there were times at the start where I wanted to end my life but I’m so glad I didn’t! These days 24 hours isn’t even enough for me to do the things I want to do, so many goals to achieve, love waking up and going for it. Time is always the best medicine who ever thought I would enjoy being the odd one out! I am in a wheelchair, but with a determination to never give up my dream of living a full life, with all its challenges. I currently play AFL wheelchair footy for Richmond, baseball, basketball, and do gym workouts.
