I am the Founder/CEO of The Garden Foundation, a nonprofit organization serving adults with disabilities or *different abilities* as we like to say! Allll inspired by my little sister, Lindsay!
The Garden Foundation wanted to find a way to unite the community by celebrating a national/world holiday of Inclusion and guess what.... IT DIDN'T EXIST!
Soooo... you know what we had to do!
The Garden Foundation has proudly founded World Inclusion Day! World Inclusion Day will be celebrated on October 10th and we would LOVE to have YOU a part of a KINDER, MORE INCLUSIVE world!
Inclusion is bigger than just disabilities, it's accepting and celebrating differences of cultures, backgrounds, races, sexes, religions and differences in perspectives.
Although it is a World holi'DAY', we think Inclusion is more of a lifestyle.
Feel free to reach out to me and share your story! I'd love to know what inclusion means to YOU.
I can't wait to meet you!
Peace, Love and Incluson,
World Inclusion Day is going WORLD WIDE and we want to have you a part of it all!
