Celebrities rally behind Buffalo’s Museum of disABILITY History

A number of celebrities are doing their part to raise awareness for Buffalo’s Museum of disABILITY History by acting as spokespeople for the inspirational cause. Actor and native Buffalonian William Fichtner recently participated in the making of a heartfelt promotional video that asks people to support a crowdfunding campaign that the museum recently embarked upon.

Fichtner was joined by Maria Shriver (activist, journalist and author), Diane English (screenwriter, producer, director and native Buffalonian), Chris Burke (actor and Goodwill Ambassador for the National Down Syndrome Society), who all helped to support the cause through Tweeted testimonials and video participation.

The campaign will go a long way towards raising crucial monetary resources for museum projects, which are intended to promote disability awareness. By raising awareness of the struggles and successes of those with disabilities, who strive to create an equal playing field for everyone, the museum acts as a beacon for resolute people who seek “understanding, acceptance and independence”.

Buffalo is able to play a key role in documenting the historic pursuits of people with disabilities, and their triumphant achievements even when faced with what must have appeared to be insurmountable challenges. The Museum of disABILITY History continues to plow forward in its singular belief that we can all live our lives in ways that will ultimately yield the one thing that we crave the most – to be happy.

Please consider supporting Buffalo’s remarkable cultural asset that has not only grown from year to year, it has also made this city a place where the flag of acceptance waves for the entire world to see.
