International Day of Acceptance

By January 20, 2016No Comments






Annie Hopkins was an advocate, entrepreneur, artist, and student, who demonstrated what is possible when you love life. In 2007, she recruited her brother Stevie to help her start a company to spread her message. She created 3E Love with the idea that her “Wheelchair Heart” symbol would unify people of all abilities and ignite conversations every day that would help change attitudes for the better.

Social acceptance is the key… not the pity and ignorance with which she grew up. Embrace diversity. Educate your community. Empower each other. Love life!

Friends, tell the world you embrace who you are; a person with social rights, who has an opinion, who has interests, who has goals, who loves life, and who will not be without a voice in society. You are not living disabled, you are living.

Supporters, join us in telling the world that you are accepting of people with disabilities – you also have a role in our culture and life. You can have an impact on the future by wearing your heart on your sleeve and proudly demonstrating acceptance.
