“October Awareness Campaign: Ruby and Nella Rock the Future”

Ruby and her friend Nella have been on many adventures, but this past October they took us on a little journey into a world where they were reaching, dreaming and achieving a life without limits. To see more of this journey watch the quick video below! To be inspired by true life stories of accomplishment and view the entire campaign, head on over to our BLOG.

About Ruby’s Rainbow

Ruby’s Rainbow was inspired by our own lil’ lady, Ruby. At her birth, we discovered she had an extra special chromosome. Our expectations for her did not change, and we vowed as a family to give her every opportunity we could to learn, grow, flourish and become an important contributor to society and the community.

Our goal and mission at Ruby’s Rainbow is to grant scholarships to adults with Down syndrome who are seeking post-secondary education, enrichment or vocational classes, and help them achieve their dreams of higher education, while spreading awareness of their capabilities and general awesomeness.

Life and learning don’t stop after high school, after all — and we want to help these amazing individuals reach their highest potential.

We love keeping track of our Rockin’ Recipients. We hope their accomplishments will inspire others to go for their dreams!
