Feel free to use one of the above graphics on your page to show your support of the Silver Ribbon Campaign!
A: The Silver Ribbon Campaign is a grass roots effort started by members of the Our-Kids Mailing List. Our-Kids is a mailing list for professionals, friends, and family members of children with disABILITIES of all sorts. Most members thought it was important to find a way to identify individuals who are interested in promoting awareness and support of children with disABILITIES. Our-Kids kids have needs that are different than adults, and that's what we're trying to promote.
Absolutely NOT! Anyone who is interested in the cause may wear a ribbon. We want as many people to be aware of the special needs of children with disABILITIES. So, if you are a professional, friend, relative, or a child yourself, we certainly would love to have you wear one. We're not snobs here. We all want to further the cause.
The ribbon is similar to other ribbons you may have seen for various causes. It is about 1/2-3/4" wide and is folded to make a loop. You can see a rough picture of what they look like at the top of this page. Those of us who are starting the grass roots campaign will be passing out cards with them that say:
"Consider this silver ribbon a special gift. Please wear it to promote the awareness and support of children with disabilities."
If you would like to make your own ribbons and pass out similar cards, please feel free to do so.
We're currently working out a way to get ribbons to those who can't find the proper materials. Please check back later. I hope to have an answer soon. If you would like to order a pin with the Silver Ribbon Campaign slogan and graphic, click on the "Order a Silver Ribbon Pin Online!" link below.
If you know of other places that proudly support and/or promote the Silver Ribbon Campaign, please let me know...
This is a section for talking about what different people are doing to support the Silver Ribbon Campaign in their community. If you have something to add, please drop me a note. Nothing will help convince folks to start a SRC in their area as much as seeing it at work in other places.
If you have any questions about the campaign, feel free to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be more than happy to answer your questions, or at the very least, point you in the right direction.
