Anyone who has been following me for a while has most certainly seen me write or post about Ruby's Rainbow. If not, stop reading this right now and click RIGHT HERE to go and see what it's all about. I am OBSESSED!!!
Forget it - here's a video. Watch this...
(Let me apologize now for all the exclamation points and caps you are about to read - I AM YELLING!!!!! Just to be clear).
Tell me you don't either have goosebumps, tears a smile on your face - or ALL DANG 3!!!! I have seen this video countless times and I get all of those EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!!!
What else can I say about Ruby's Rainbow? The first time I heard about it, I thought to myself, "of course, people with Down syndrome go to college" and "what an amazing idea to offer them scholarships" and finally, "I need to read more about this organization." Than I found Liz. And Ruby. And her family. The more I learned, the more I read, the more I became inspired. Inspired by Liz and her ginormous heart, her mission, her positivity. And then inspired by every single one of her recipients. It has been such a source of hope every single day for me to see the message of worthiness, capability, success, and achievement for individuals with Down syndrome.
If you are anything like me you are gonna wanna help these sweet kids get a scholarship. Well YOU CAN!!!! Every person who takes the 3-21 pledge is helping one of these people with Down syndrome with their dreams of achieving higher education.
