2017, WEEK 12:
“Promoting advocacy, public awareness, and the distribution of information relevant to Down syndrome.”
Tuesday, 3/21 is World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD). The date represents the three copies of the 21st chromosome that cause Down syndrome. One of the best ways you can show your support is to donate your time or money to your local Down Syndrome Association. They support the local families in their area by being a resource and advocacy organization, promoting public awareness and supporting lifelong opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
While we choose a single association as our featured logo, we encourage you to look up your local Down Syndrome Association and support them by volunteering your time, or financially donating to their various fundraisers!
