Laguna Beach Patriot's Day Parade

Please join us for the 54th annual Patriot's Day Parade in Laguna Beach. The theme this year is "Everyday Heroes". Often they act quietly without calling attention to themselves. They step up in difficult situations and do the right thing. We respectfully urge all to remember them and live by their examples.


We would need lots of volunteers to march the path with us. We would need all to arrive before 10:00am as the streets close after that. We will wait for our turn. The march itself takes about 10 minutes and it's all downhill and then flat. We would need our volunteers to march holding our signs and banners. We will all sing along "I see your true colors" as we march so it's a big plus if you can sing well!!

Day of Kindness Event

Ability Awareness Project's Annual Event in Laguna Beach

Nov. 9,  2019 10am till 5:30pm,  

Turn off cell phones and make a human connection! Volunteers bring strangers together and had them start off by saying: "I am the other you and I love you just the same". Then guide them to talk, meditate or just maintain eye contact. "Take what you need and Pay it Forward" on our brand new Kindness Wall!!  More volunteers offered: "Eye Contact", "Free Hugs", "Sit with Me", "Meditate with Me", "Dance with Me". There was uplifting music and speakers all day long ending with a Kindness Meditation at sunset: 4:52. We had our vigils of children who have died by suicide due to bullying and we sent them a prayer. With our unity, love and kindness we let them know that we won't let their death be in vain and we are here, unified in kindness, to rise up to bullying.    This year our event was in collaboration with the City of Laguna Beach to celebrate 2019 World Kindness Day.
