March 21st is National Down Syndrome Day (3-21…3 copies of the 21st chromosome) Since it is just around the corner, Ruby’s Rainbow is using this month as a perfect opportunity to allow you to help young adults with Down Syndrome.
Ruby’s Rainbow Mission:
Our mission at Ruby’s Rainbow is to grant scholarships to adults with Down syndrome who are seeking post-secondary education, enrichment or vocational classes. It is our goal to create awareness of the capabilities of these amazing individuals and help them achieve their dreams of higher education.
We not only grant scholarships; we also love keeping track of Ruby’s Rockin’ Recipients throughout their educational programs and beyond. We hope reading about them will inspire others to go for their dreams!
So what’s the pledge?
Step 1 Donate just $21.
Step 2 Pledge to be kind and considerate to peeps of all abilities.
Step 3 Ask three friends to do the same.
That’s it!! But I’m taking it a step further…I’m not just asking 3 of you to take this pledge, I’m asking all of you!! Think of how much could be raised if each of you take this pledge and get 3 of your friends to do the same! How many adults do you think we can help go to college, work toward their dreams, or accomplish their goals!
