spread the word….


On March 3, 2010 Best, Buddies, Special Olympics and supporters from across the world will unite in support of a grass-roots movement challenging the use of the R-word, an outdated word that must be recognized for its hurtful impact on people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. SPREAD THE WORD TO END THE WORD awareness day will engage schools, organizations and communities by raising the consciousness of society about the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the R-word and encouraging everyone to stop using this word by signing our pledge and encouraging their friends to do the same.

Please help us achieve our goal of 100,000 pledges by visiting www.r-word.org and taking the pledge today.  you can also show your support by purchasing merchandise at the new www.r-wordstore.com .
