International Day of Acceptance

coverJanuary 20th, 2014 is the 5th Annual International Day of Acceptance!

This is a day to promote the social acceptance of disability and to honor the late Annie Hopkins, founder of 3E Love and creator of the International Symbol of Acceptance (wheelchair heart symbol).

Join us in telling the world that you are accepting of people with disabilities.  As parents, siblings, relatives, spouses, children, care-givers, teachers, friends – you can have an impact on the future if you wear your heart on your sleeve and proudly demonstrate your acceptance of others.

Let’s join together to:
Embrace diversity. Educate your community. Empower each other. Love life!

Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common. Celebrate it every day.

Start the conversation of acceptance.

Spreading the 3E Love

Embrace. Educate. Empower.


3E Love is a social entrepreneurial movement to change the perception of disability.

The company was started by siblings Annie & Stevie Hopkins in 2007 with the intent of promoting their unique symbol and social model of disability. The company’s trademarked “International Symbol of Acceptance” (wheelchair heart logo) is the drive behind its social mission to provide the tools for others to embrace diversity, educate society, and empower each other to love life.  The symbol represents real people and real life instead of perceptions and stereotypes.  3E Love is about loving and living life to the fullest no matter what you can or cannot do.

We are proud to announce that Little Tulips Family Child Care has partnered with 3E Love to be able to spread the love and awareness with our community!

We have t-shirts available in a variety of colours and sizes, from 2T – XL.  $20 each.
