Target’s New Ad and #DownSyndrome

by Carrie with Children with 18 comments

I was so excited to see a child with Down syndrome featured in this past weekend’s Target sales flyer.  Isn’t she a cutie?

I love that Target understand the importance of featuring those with special needs.  They are helping break stereotypes and most importantly, it allows children with special needs to see that they can succeed and fulfill a meaningful life.

Target also featured a child with Down syndrome in their “Back to School” ads this past year.  Check out this past post for the scoop…and a really cute picture!

(Hey Target, if you are listening – let’s chat…my Molly would make a great model!)
