Resources for World Down Syndrome Day

Today people across the world will be wearing their mismatched colourful socks to celebrate Rock Your Socks for World Down Syndrome Day.  Rock Your Socks is held on the 21st day of the 3rd month because the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome leads to Down Syndrome.  

So wear your brightest, craziest, mismatched socks today  and post your pictures on social media!!!! When someone asks "Why are you wearing those socks?" you'll have the perfect opening to tell them that March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day and that you are celebrating all the great things that people with Down Syndrome can do, as well as helping to advocate for inclusion and respect.

  1. If you have any other resources for World Down Syndrome Day, please feel free to post them in a comment. Only a few minutes after I posted, I realized I forgot to include Group Hug Apparel. http://grouphugapparel.com
