We are not a large corporation with a high administrative overhead, in fact we have no administrative costs. All work is volunteer, and oftentimes the materials we provide are funded from our own pockets or donated to us by others. The “R” Word Campaign is a grass roots effort by those interested in bringing awareness to everyone that the use of the word “retard” to mean something bad or stupid is offensive to people with disabilities and those who know and love them.
With that spirit in mind we provide the following materials free of charge for use in your communities.
Let Them Know Cards (Avery 27871 Business Card sheets )
Pass It On Cards (print on card stock, pdf)
2 inch R-Word Sticker Buttons (Compatible to Avery 5194)Spread
The Word Image for T-Shirts or Small Posters (pdf)
Please share your stories and photos with us so we can share your successes which will encourage others to stand up and speak out!
If you would like to donate money to us, our pledge to you is that we will put all donations to use promoting the “r” Word Campaign by making materials available free of charge to schools and community groups. Every donation, no matter how small, is vitally important to helping us support local school and community education efforts.
If you would like to donate in other ways, we are open to your suggestions.
Here are our long term goals;
- Develop education materials for free distribution to individuals, schools and communities.
- Create and maintain a network of advocates in each state available for presentations in schools and communities.
- Develop a program guide for presentations
- Promote a poster contest for school age children at the state level to reaffirm the classroom presentations.
- Promote an awareness day or event, nationally or at state level.
Your money will go towards the purchase of lapel stickers, and bumper stickers that will be handed out to schools and conferences.
