The holidays are a time for reflecting and making new resolutions, especially as we approach the New Year. One resolution worth taking on is the act of accepting ourselves and our neighbors wholeheartedly. That’s why The Arc of Palm Beach County and Hamilton Jewelers have partnered together on the Acceptance Collection to stamp this message onto gold and silver jewelry.

Acceptance is a universal desire. We long for our authentic self to be seen, heard, and accepted. Finding acceptance and inclusion for people with disabilities has been the goal of The Arc of Palm Beach County for 60 years. The nonprofit wants to extend that message beyond its clients to encourage a community conversation about acceptance.

Difficult times often lead to positive changes. Anyone who has navigated the road to self-acceptance knows it’s a challenging, but worthwhile path to travel. That’s why The Arc of Palm Beach County is launching a public service campaign focused on acceptance.
