Even though summer is not yet over, UK NGO Mencap is asking us to think ahead about Christmas and already start getting prepared.
The NGO has launched a new website, aimed at selling a diverse range of Christmas themed products – from cards to tote bags, kitchen aprons or key rings. The merchandise was created using festive graphics and drawings made by people with intellectual disabilities, and chosen in a nation-wide competition.
Apart from spreading holiday cheer, the website also offers a touching insight into the lives of John and Andrew – twins with autism and intellectual disabilities. Christmas in particular can be a difficult moment for families relying on outside support, and the two brothers know this very well. In order to share his story with everyone and bear testimony to the importance and impact of Mencap’s work in helping people with intellectual disabilities live an included life, John has written a story about last year’s Christmas day at their house.
