When he isn't writing about the things he loves most, you can find him in the great outdoors!

There are millions of beautiful children all over the world, and while each of them is different in their own special way, you’d be surprised at just how alike they really are with each other.

To celebrate and spread awareness, siblings Lauren and Paul Costabile created this amazing short video titled, “More Alike Than Different” for World Down Syndrome Day.

World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on March 21st every year, and its meaning is simple, but beautiful. To help spread and raise awareness to the world that while these people might have Down Syndrome, that doesn’t mean they don’t have hopes, dreams, likes, dislikes, and a hilarious sense of humor.

Even the date they chose for this special day is unique and interesting; the 21st day of the 3rd month was chosen to express the triplication of the 21st chromosome which causes Down Syndrome.

The Costabile’s mission in life is to change people’s perceptions of those with Down Syndrome through media and to show the world just how beautiful and special these people truly are!

They strongly believe in creating a world of inclusion and how, together, we must put aside our differences and embrace the fact that we all deserve to be loved, included, and accepted in our society. And it all starts with showing just how alike we truly all are.
