As World Down Syndrome Day approaches on March 21st, GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Centers, a global leader in the Down syndrome community, is calling upon people worldwide to visit and take the #GenerationG pledge. 

I Promise to be #GenerationG. 
I will make a conscious decision to be better every day.

I will be Generous. 
I will be Kind. 

#GenerationG is a global, social campaign for acceptance, not just of people with Down syndrome, but for people of all abilities! With 60 GiGi’s Playhouse locations in the US and Mexico and our Virtual Playhouse platform providing services in 89 countries, we change lives through the consistent delivery of free educational, therapeutic-based, and career development programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community, through a replicable playhouse model. 

With the launch of the #GenerationG Pledge campaign, GiGi’s Playhouse aims to ignite a global movement that celebrates the uniqueness and potential of people of all abilities.  

“At GiGi’s Playhouse, we believe that every individual, regardless of ability, deserves to be celebrated and included,” said Nancy Gianni, Chief Belief Officer at GiGi’s Playhouse. “Taking the pledge at opens up dialogue for families, schools and in the workplace to talk about things that may be overlooked or uncomfortable but need to be said. Together, we can make this world a place where everyone is accepted as they are.”
