why this cause matters to the artist
The organization that I am choosing to represent is the Special Olympics. The Special Olympics is a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for sports for those who have an Intellectual Disability, also known as IDs. Some IDs that are most familiar are Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, birth defects, and infections which can occur either before, during, or after birth. No matter what ID they have or where they are on the spectrum, they should all be accepted and welcomed. The Special Olympics is also the world’s largest public health organization for people with intellectual disabilities and have leading research which allows us to understand the abilities and capabilities of those with an ID. They help build communities to spread awareness, compassion and acceptance for people with ID’s.
I absolutely love the Special Olympics because my little brother Allen has been a part of it since he was 5. The Special Olympics has provided him a healthy outlet to stay active, enjoy playing sports with no limitations, make numerous friends, and to simply, have fun. I look up to my little brother a lot because though he may or may not know that he has Downs Syndrome, he does not allow it to stop him from smiling and living life to the fullest.
