Do you know anyone who makes a difference in the lives of people with IDD? Take a moment to share your appreciation with them. Some people like to express their gratitude with gifts. Oftentimes, gestures that cost nothing - drawings, handwritten notes, handmade thank you cards, heartfelt emails, or simply saying thank you - can brighten someone’s day.
