What is your Birthday Wish?

You can do more than just wish for an equal world for everyone when you blow out your birthday candles this year.

In honor of the 33rd Birthday of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we are launching a new fundraiser that will make a profound impact on the lives of individuals with disabilities, our Donate Your Birthday fundraiser.

We invite you to join us in celebrating your birthday with our Donate Your Birthday fundraiser.

Your birthday is a day to celebrate your story.

At Independent Living, we are deeply committed to advocating for disability visibility and fostering a society that embraces inclusivity and equality for all. We believe that every person has the right to a life of dignity, respect, and independence. That’s why we are thrilled to introduce this fundraiser, which enables you to use your birthday to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and support our vision of a world without barriers, equal and accessible to all people.

We invite you to invite others to your birthday! Your birthday is more than a party; it is more than having cake and blowing out candles. It is a day to celebrate your story– to celebrate who you are and that you are still here. Your birthday is a day to honor what you care about. We invite you to reflect on your story and celebrate the journey—to celebrate you and what is closest to you. To make your wishes come true.

Tell everyone what Independent Living, Inc. means to you. Share your story and ask your friends, family and network to celebrate your story with you by gifting a donation to Independent Living, Inc.

Getting started is easy to do, and it can even be fun and inspiring. We will give you all the tools you will need to make a difference. With your help, we can create a ripple effect of empowerment and support for individuals with disabilities, celebrating disability visibility. Your participation in this fundraiser will not only celebrate your own story and the joy of another year of your life but also empower you to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most.

When you donate your birthday to Independent Living, Inc., you will be a part of creating an equitable and accessible future for all people.
