321 Days of Acceptance | Week 9
Welcome to the week nine recap of 321 Days of Acceptance from Generation G!
Generation G is a conscious decision to be better every day. Acceptance is a fundamental dignity for all people, regardless of ability. Acceptance is more than an act of charity, it is truly generosity “in action”.
acceptance is the very heart and the very best of humanity. without daily actions to create lasting acceptance, opportunities for present and future generations will falter.
In sharing a story and image each day it is our hope to flood social media with the truth about how normal down syndrome is and how extraordinary people with down syndrome are! you are helping the mission of generation g & acceptance by simply sharing these posts (found each morning on our facebook page) with your friends on social media! thank you. we are stronger together.
