It is not a big deal but you don’t see it that often….


“It’s time for organizations to be intentional about seeking creative ways to help promote inclusion, not exclusion.  (It’s no accident that Target used a model with Down syndrome in this ad; it was an intentional decision.  If want the world to be a place where everyone is treated equal we can’t just sit around and watch the days tick away.  We have to be intentional.  We have to do something.)”

This should not create any buzz on the web.  But it does!. Because you don’t see it often. We don’t see organizations promoting and celebrating differences we have. I am not sure how many organizations out there who can and will follow this great example Target and Nordstrom set. On his blog,  Noah’s Dad asked if this influences my decision to shop with them more. YES!
