Down Right Beautiful was formed in honor of our daughter, Sofia, and for all of the amazing children and adults with Down syndrome. If you are as fortunate as we are to have someone with Down syndrome in your life, you know of the love, kindness and compassion that they bring to our world. Our mission is to help the rest of the world understand the positive potential of all people with Down syndrome and to share in the unique beauty that they possess.
Join us and help spread the word - March 7, 2012
Help us raise the consciousness of society about the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the word “retard(ed)” and encourage people to pledge to stop using the R-word. “Most people don’t think of this word as the language of hate, but that’s exactly what it feels like to millions of people with intellectual disabilities, their families and friends.” John C. McGinley (actor/spokesperson)
