World Down Syndrome Day 2015
March 21, 2015
How are you celebrating March 21st?
We have a few ways that we are celebrating. Check out the details below to join us in celebrating and creating awareness for Down Syndrome. We have provided links for you. Simply click on each of the images in each of the articles. These links will direct you to the original site for more information. You can also download our press release below.
We want to get people talking!
We can do this if we all wear socks…BUT NOT JUST ANY SOCKS…brightly coloured socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock…maybe even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. If you don’t normally wear socks then wear them. The choice is yours, but we ask you to join us in wearing something which people will ask you about so that you can tell them all about WDSD. It is easy to do, so whether you are at home, nursery, school, university, work, play, travel, holiday or anywhere, join in! On 21 March, wear LOTS OF SOCKS and invite all your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.
The Sickest Socks!
Looking for a custom pair of sick socks to spread awareness on World Down Syndrome Day….check out The Sickest Socks website. The company committed to donating $15 from the sale of each pair of socks to benefit Down Syndrome. They have also recently created clothing items that can compliment those sick socks. Make sure you post your creation to our Facebook page. We want to see how you are participating in the Lots of Socks campaign and creating awareness this World Down Syndrome Day!
In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, the National Down Syndrome Congress and six other national Down syndrome organizations are promoting “Random Acts of Kindness” in the United States. In collaboration with Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action, Global Down Syndrome Foundation, International Down Syndrome Coalition, International Mosaic Down Syndrome Association, Lumind Foundation, National Down Syndrome Society, we have created a toolkit for WDSD 2015 that you can use to share information about Down syndrome with your community, celebrate people with Down syndrome, and spread a little love and kindness in the name of Down syndrome!
