Acknowledge Downs Syndrome Awareness This October
October brings many types of awareness campaigns. Some of these designated campaigns are “biggies”, such as:
- Bullying Prevention
- Campaign for Healthier Babies Month
- AIDS Awareness
- Domestic Violence Awareness
- Fire Prevention
- Lupus Awareness
- Selective Mutism Awareness
- Vegetarian Awareness
- Pregnancy and Infant Loss
- Book Month
- Breast Cancer Awareness
- Dental Hygiene Awareness
- Adopt a Dog From a Shelter
- Rett syndrome
While all of these are very, very important topics that people should embrace, one cause that is very near and dear to our hearts at CARE, Inc. is the Downs Syndrome Awareness.
Many of our clients have children with Downs Syndrome and this month we wish to celebrate their accomplishments and achievements with a BIG BRAVO! We are behind you 100% and rather than talking about downs syndrome as a “disability”, CARE, Inc. sees your abilities with pride and love. We encourage you through your hardships and want to educate and inspire both our caregivers and loyal customers with as much encouragement as we can!
So, not just this October, but all year long, we would love to see more participation at some of the downs syndrome special events. Some of those include the Buddy Walk, Special Olympics and the opportunities to become an NDSS Advocate through the Advocacy Programs. You can also submit a story about someone special you know with downs syndrome on the National Downs Syndrome Society website.
