What is January 20th?

Posted by Stevie Hopkins on January 08, 2013

 What is January 20th, International Day of Acceptance and how did it start?

3E Love's founder and creator of their "wheelchair heart" symbol, Annie Hopkins was an advocate, entrepreneur, artist, and student, and she demonstrated what is possible when you love life. She created 3E Love with the idea that our symbol unified people of all abilities and it ignites conversations every day that will help change attitudes for the better. She believed that 3E Love could be a vehicle to introduce people to the symbol and her message. Her ideas didn't stop there: she wanted to create a social entrepreneurial endeavor, disability owned and disability operated, that one day, when successful, would be further empowerment and a statement that we can achieve without charity. Social acceptance is the key, not pity and ignorance. Embrace diversity. Educate your community. Empower each other. Love life!

Stevie's message of gratitude and reflection

Posted by Stevie Hopkins on January 20, 2012

Hello friends and family, As you know, today is January 20th, the International Day of Acceptance. Today thousands of people are “wearing their heart on their sleeve” all over the world. Hundreds of thousands of people will see the International Symbol of Acceptance today, take a second look, then think to themselves, start a conversation with a friend or stranger, and look at the traditional symbol representing “disability” in a new way. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but hopefully the hundreds of thousands of interactions that occur today will be building blocks of a world that is more accepting. For being a...

A Labor of LOVE

Posted by Stevie Hopkins on November 21, 2011

Hi friends,

I'm so excited that you are reading this. It means that after a month of exhaustive work and over a year of planning, that the new 3E Love web site is up. I honestly can't even believe it. For the past year I've been telling all my friends and family my ideas for a new site, how things can be improved, changed, etc., but things were always so hectic that I never had time to put my ideas into action. But then about two months ago, I said, ENOUGH! I was ready.


Now, it's here. You are here. Hopefully loving it, thinking its super sleek and user friendly. Hopefully you want to buy lots of good stuff since I went 2.5 times over budget. Eeek
