Welcome to March!
On March 21st our Down syndrome community around the world will be celebrating World Down Syndrome Day.
While we have many ways of celebrating the day, one theme tends to thread through, and that is the theme of kindness.
We practice random acts of kindness both on the day of 3/21 as well as throughout the month, and we take care to be a little kinder than necessary during this month.
Taking this one step further and inspired by Action for Happiness, we have created a Kindness Calendar for the month of March.
The Kindness Calendar
There are suggestions for each day of the month for an act of kindness.
Some of the acts are about being kind to our own selves, some are for being kind to others. These are suggestions, meant to jump-start a month in which we can challenge ourselves to be kind whenever possible, to strive to seize opportunities to share joy in the world.
