Shrek in German means fear. My son is not frightening - hes autistic.
What great ads!
Those are excellent :).
superb, thx cas!for four years i was on the board of directors of the local 'entrepreneurs with disabilities network', and i'm still a member of the organization, for the last eight years
What an amazing campaign! We have something similiar from the Canadian Down Syndrome association (http://www.cdss.ca/site/about_us/welcome.php)..it's nice to see some groups that actually value their kids, and don't focus on every negative. Maybe some day the autism world will catch up!
Laughingwolf, that sounds realy interesting.
Everybody can do something well. I have greater respect for someone that has ability at something- where I have none.
Ah but you do! Your blog is full of the wonderful things you cook.
Actually- I was referring to areas I have no talent! I love music, but can't play an instrument, I love singing, but not something I do well. Everyone has talent at something- You have helped show that point on your blog quite well! Have a safe trip, and spoil yourself once in awhile!
So fantastic. I volunteered with the Special Olympics during high school and those kids are all just amazing!
What a fantastic advertsing campaign!
Those are great ads.
Oh I absolutely love this kind of campaign that shows the REAL people behind the "scary" labels!Fantastic fantastic!
Wow. Special Olympics and their focus on abilities is so great. I really enjoyed reading about the five athletes. Central Michigan University in my city of Mt. Pleasant hosts games at the state level every year in June. I'm hoping to get my son involved soon. I always need my running shoes to keep up with him. Thanks for posting about this wonderful organization.
I love these!
Brilliant! I passed along the site to family! Thank you for posting about this great campaign.Also, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your very kind comments. I am looking forward to reading your about you and your son.Cheers!
I've always thought everybody needed to own superhero T-shirts. Sometimes you need to put one on and remind yourself of who you REALLY are. Not only does everyone have ability, everyone has greatness in them. These past few posts have been wonderful. Excelsior!
What an inspiration these young people are! Thank you. I enjoyed reading that.
What a great ad campaign! We need to see more like this, BG
Thanks Casdok, being a Californian I would never have seen these. Wonderful! The Canadian ad was also moving.
I have a nephew who has asperger and another one who has autism. You have a wonderful informative blog.
Great post TFx
Fantastic ads. I've been thinking about getting J involved with Special Olympics. He can run like a bullet.
it is, we help disabled folk set up their own businesses, no matter what the income... makes all concerned proud :)
You my friend are still #1 in my book, I wish you and C nothing but great things for the New Year!!!
I come here to learn to be a better person, and you never fail me.
Good! I like the ads.
Very Inspirational! I enjoyed seeing the adds but deep down Im not sure if peoples attitudes will change. Hopefully Im wrong!
I like how that did that taking it outside the box!!
Focusing on ability is vital. I understand completely, with a husband who has a disability and uses a wheelchair.
Hope you've not been too lonely today. Glad you had a lot of people dropping in!
yay! special olympics... used to do stuff with them although my disabilities are too physical for my special olympics district now... they dont deal with wheelchairs at my SO district... but NWSRA here does a "cross play" thing where they enter into the SO as their own district... so i might do that..oh and casdok http://www.alinssite.info/Alin/My_Blog/Entries/2008/1/8_Disabilities_podcast_Epilepsy_episode_released.html
What a wonderful, refreshing concept. More power to you.
Right away I thought of Rudyard Kipling's poem "Gunga Din." By the livin' Gawd that made you, You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!
loving these adds. We all need to try to focus on the positive more and what strengths people have.XO
That is a really cool ad campaign!
Casdok- this is brilliant. love it, and oh so fantastic
Ah I love these, we only have the one about Mark in our city, well that is the only one I have found so far anyway.
A wonderful lesson as well as a brilliant ad - look and learn before you leap into judgement.
Awesome campaign! Awesome photos!!
