Blair Williamson (actor who has Down syndrome), his mom and dad put up a video asking HGTV to redo their back yard. Please watch their video and write a comment telling HGTV that redoing the yard would help LA's disability community, the Born to Act Players, and all who will meet and celebrate there in the future.
