the ‘dis[s]’ of abilities

December 3rd is International Day of People with Disabilities!

Since its inception in 1945, the United Nations (UN) has outlined and reiterated its commitment to calling for the creation of inclusive, accessible and sustainable societies and communities – most notably with the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Over time, the UN has honed its focus on promoting the well-being and welfare of people living with disabilities, and in 1992 called for an international day of celebration for people living with disabilities to be held on December 3 each year.

Having a ‘disabled’ child has changed my ‘ability’ to truly love and appreciate life — Kieran is not “special needs”… rather, he is the kind of “special” person that our world simply “needs”

2012 brought a simple idea with enormous impact — “GivingTuesday” — a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This particular December 3rd International Day of People with Disabilities just so happens to also be “GivingTuesday” 2019.
