TORONTO, May 29, 2018 /CNW/ - On Wednesday, May 30th, Community Living Toronto will be hosting an online awareness campaign called "I Took a Break" to celebrate all that we have accomplished during the month of May, Community Living Month, to raise awareness of people with an intellectual disability living full lives in the community.
Community Living organizations across the entire province, MP's, MPP's, Toronto City Counselors, Donors, volunteers, Community Partners, Individuals and families receiving support, media, and more are all participating on Wednesday May 30th!
Help us celebrate community living and the rights and choices of children, youth and adults with an intellectual disability! To participate: you will need to get a KitKat candy bar and tape our special wrapper around it. You can download the wrapper at www.communitylivingtoronto.ca/itookabreak18
Once you have the KitKat ready, take a selfie with it, post it on your social pages, include the hashtag #ITookaBreak18 and tag us! @CLToronto.
About Community Living Month:
Throughout the month of May Community Living Associations across the province celebrate Community Living month. This month is a time for us to celebrate the rights choices and inclusion for people with an intellectual disability and to celebrate the communities where they live, learn work and play. It is a time to reflect on how far we have come, and to reaffirm our commitment to reaching full inclusion for all citizens. A society where everyone belongs. A society where everyone is valued.
