“Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day” (EKS Day) will promote a global call for people to commit acts of inclusion, acceptance and unity for individuals with intellectual disabilities (EKS ACTS). I have been asked to help spread the word about this fantastic day by my friend Gillian (who's post I have copied here, she gets all the credit!)
Anyone can participate with an Act of Unity. You don't need to attend or host a big event. Your Act of Unity can be as simple as:
blogging, emailing, texting, and using your social media outlets to spread the word about the day.
Change your profile picture to a photo of Eunice (many images in that link to chose from), and
use one of her iconic quotes as your status update. Click HERE to hear audio files of Eunice speaking.
