Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day

Presentation1

Wearing crazy socks to start a conversation about WDSD

Friday was World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD).  Why celebrate WDSD?   We want to promote awareness and understanding, seek international support and achieve dignity, equal rights and a better life for people with Down Syndrome.  

It is hoped that the activities and events will have a tremendous impact showcasing the abilities, talents and accomplishments of people with Down Syndrome.  I encourage you to watch these two inspiring videos.  Then tell your friends and family why it is so important to celebrate this day.
