2021 Calendar Theme: Stories of Acceptance

GiGi’s Playhouse produces quality, professional calendars year after year impacting our communities and raising acceptance for individuals with Down syndrome.

As with all communications, we want the calendar to share the mission & WHY of GiGi’s Playhouse, which is to change the way the world views Down syndrome and send a global message of acceptance for all! If you are interested in participating, please complete the application below in full.

This project is open to any individual who participates in programs or events at a GiGi’s Playhouse location or virtually through GiGi’s At Home programming. The criteria for being approved as a calendar model begins with supporting the concepts and theme of the calendar; however, the significance of your story and the level of your commitment to continue raising awareness for Down syndrome will also impact our decisions. Although there is no guarantee that every applicant will be in the calendar, every child and adult with Down syndrome is beautiful!
We are excited to hear your stories of acceptance and share them with the world!
Deadline for submission is Wednesday, September 9, 2020.

Thank you for all your submissions! We will be going through your wonderful acceptance stories and contacting individuals chosen for our calendar.
