Please check out my blog from back in Week 16 – Killing Them with Kindness. I was going to write on a very different topic today, but I just noticed that in honor of World Down Syndrome Day, the National Down Syndrome Congress and six other national Down syndrome organizations are promoting “Random Acts of Kindness” in the United States.
Many organizations have collaborated to create a toolkit for World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) on March 21, 2015 that you can use to share information about Down syndrome with your community, celebrate people with Down syndrome, and spread a little love and KINDNESS in the name of Down syndrome!
It’s as easy as 1-2-3-4 and really congruent with what we have been working on in our Master Key (MKMMA) course:
- On March 21st, wear a t-shirt if you can that says something about Down syndrome.
- Choose an act of kindness, like taking cookies to a fire station, or checking in on an elderly neighbor (we have a list of suggestions here to help get you started!)
- Print a WDSD postcard (like the image above) and give it out or place it with your Random Act.
- Take pictures of the random act and post on your social media pages with the hashtag #WDSD15. We’ll have people on the receiving end of our kindness, and the whole world watching on Facebook and Twitter.
Let’s make this the biggest, best World Down Syndrome Day yet!

I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life. A huge motivator for me in everything I do is my daughter, who has a diagnosis of Down Syndrome.
I have come so far already. Today I begin a new life.
It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
