Remaining independent is one of the main reasons why the Tree House (so far) has no sponsors or partners who can influence our balanced views to suit one’s needs or agendas. Every minute and beads of sweat that has been spent in dedication towards the Tree House is purely voluntary – out of generosity and passion. I am sure that I am not alone in truly admiring those for giving and for not receiving because all of the contributed writings, edited videos are of very high standards.
Now and again, there will be moments of holding one’s breath because we strive to provide an impartial and independent platform for those who are or wish to be “open minded, forward thinking, think the unthinkable, and say the unsayable all the while thinking outside the deaf box.”
By facing reality and being realistic of our deaf ways, it does mean that now and again there may be acts of dispelling myths. We all need to keep up with the times, accept, respect current ways of modern thinking whilst being inclusive of today’s diversity. Only then can “we” move on.
However, if a neutral sponsor who is willing to remain impartial, open-minded, keeping in line with the Tree House’s ethos and has the loyal dwellers best interests at heart shows an interest, they will then be considered. As that is one aspect, we would be willing to move forwards with because it is not about us but the society we have to live in and share.
