EKS Acts of Unity

“Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day” (EKS Day) will promote a global call for people to commit acts of inclusion, acceptance and unity for individuals with intellectual disabilities (EKS ACTS). I have been asked to help spread the word about this fantastic day by my friend Gillian (who's post I have copied here, she gets all the credit!)


Anyone can participate with an Act of Unity. You don't need to attend or host a big event. Your Act of Unity can be as simple as:
  • blogging, emailing, texting, and using your social media outlets to spread the word about the day.
  • Change your profile picture to a photo of Eunice (many images in that link to chose from), and
  • use one of her iconic quotes as your status update. Click HERE to hear audio files of Eunice speaking.
  • On twitter post: RT: I pledge to honor @SpecialOlympics by performing an Act of Unity on http://act.ly/2e7 RT to sign.
  • Be sure to post your Act of Unity HERE.
"Every person, regardless of whatever different abilities they may have, can contribute, can be a source of joy, can beam with pride and love."- Eunice Kennedy Shriver
