ThriveWorldwide: Celebrate United Nations International Day for Persons with Disabilities

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-December 1st 2018

Since 1992, the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been celebrated annually on 3 December around the world. It’s a day of acknowledgment of how far we’ve come and how much remains for people with disabilities. It’s a day to celebrate inclusion and highlight the many organizations who support people with disabilities, including developmental disabilities in various ways.

If we can normalize inclusion around the world, people will no longer be “different” – just differently-abled.

Travel for All is Canada’s Premiere Accessible Travel Agency and strongly believes in Limitless posAbilities to create an inclusive world for all its’ citizens. We specialize in helping people with various disabilities live their dream to travel the world.

Travel for All, in conjunction with Ukrainian Community Centre, Vancouver Adapted Music Society, Wheelchair Dance Sports Association of Canada and Canadian Assisted Travel Society has the pleasure of inviting you to “ThriveWorldwide”, to celebrate diversity and inclusion on Saturday, Dec. 1st, 2018 from 5 – 7.30 pm at The Ukrainian Community Centre, 5311 Francis Road, Richmond, BC.

This event is being celebrated for the first time in Canada and Travel for All is proud to take this initiative and host ThriveWorldwide in Richmond, BC

Join host Tabassum, The First Vice Miss Wheelchair Canada 2017, Polio survivor, Positive Influencer and Accessible Travel Specialist at Travel for All in celebrating the amazing lives, talent and accomplishments of People with Disabilities, for an evening of celebration, education, socializing, food and fun.

The event is free with a suggested donation of $10; all proceeds will be donated to Richmond Society for Community Living.

Registration is required for headcount and planning purposes

Tarita Davenock, CEO and Founder, Travel for All, along with leaders of the non-profit organizations, caregivers and people in the world of special needs will be present, so this event would be a great opportunity to meet them in person and get support for your family or learn how you can help to support their cause. Also, listen to local celebs share their message of inclusion.

The United Nations has made the call. Canada, WE are going to answer that call.
