Thank you donors! Over 1,000 of you have chosen to contribute this year, but the Honor Roll can only display 300 names. You are all appreciated!

This year, we celebrate our daughter Nella’s third birthday. Three years of joy. Three years of learning. Three years of working with so many others to create the culture we dream of—one that celebrates differences.

When our daughter was born and we were told she had Down syndrome, we were shocked and saddened by the challenges we knew she’d face. Many of our concerns grew out of a common hope we share with any parent—that our child will be accepted and seen for her abilities and character rather than what makes her different.

We’ve learned so much these past three years. Most importantly, we learned, as Ghandi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” We join thousands of others in proactively seeking ways we can increase knowledge and awareness about the amazing abilities of individuals with Down syndrome. We have chosen to continue to support the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in their goal of raising awareness and creating opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome and their families to live their best life possible.

The National Down Syndrome Society has been dedicated to making a marked difference for people with Down syndrome since 1979. NDSS is the national advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. NDSS envisions a world in which all people with Down syndrome have the opportunity to enhance their quality of life, realize their life aspirations, and become valued members of welcoming communities.

Since Nella’s first birthday, we have launched an awareness fundraiser to celebrate the day she came into our lives. Our original hopes were to raise $15,000. With your help, we’ve raised over $200,000. We have been so inspired by others’ generosity—most of which came from people we’ve never met. We are eternally grateful for how people are willing to join the cause on behalf of Nella and the more than 400,000 individuals with Down syndrome living in the United States.

We continue to learn more. And we are dedicated to sharing what we’ve learned and moving forward with our goal to change stereotypes, raise awareness, and multiply the number of opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome to lead a fulfilling life.

This year, we’re launching N3lla’s Triple Crown. Please join us by spreading the word and making a donation to NDSS in honor of our girl’s third birthday. Every bit adds up--$5, $10. We have proof, thanks to you, that small gifts of thoughtfulness make a powerful difference.

Your tax-deductible donation will benefit people with Down syndrome and their families. Our family sincerely thanks you. We will continue our efforts to give back.
