I can't believe that another year has gone by and we can officially begin the celebration for Down Syndrome Awareness month. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month and I will be sharing lots of inspiring and meaningful stories of courageous women I have the honor of bring connected with.
To kick off DSAM 2016 I have partnered with The National Down Syndrome Society and started a campaign to celebrate differences, promote inclusion and raise funds for this amazing Human Right's Organization.
My goal is to raise $5,000 by the end of the month in support of NDSS and all the great work they do for The Down Syndrome community and families like mine. The campaign is inspired by my 5 year old son Blake!
Any size donation is helpful and appreciated. No donation is too small (or big!). If you are unable to donate please consider sharing the link on your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Blog or email your contacts. You never know who will be come the next Parents, Sibling, Cousin, Friend of someone who has Down Syndrome. Blake wasn't diagnosed until after he was born in May of 2011 and our world was forever changed!
Together we can create an inclusive world that is full of love, respect, community and celebrate our differences. Lets face it, we all have differences, challenges and ABILITY! There is room for all of us to shine and support one another!
How will you celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month?
