March is such a special month for us as we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day on March 21! This year we are looking to get our whole community involved in the fun and awareness and the Board has been working hard to reach out to various organizations in our community.
All of Windsor-Essex is invited to learn about Down Syndrome and Rock their Socks with us! If you would like to help us share the message, we have attached a fun informational package. If you’d like, please feel free to share this with any companies, schools or groups that can help us spread Awareness about World Down Syndrome Day! We would love to see the whole community Rocking their Socks!
Full details are in the attached participation package and will be shared on social media too. If you prefer a hard copy of the participation package, please let us know and we’ll coordinate a way to get it out to you. Upon request we will also be providing groups with a poster to include in their photos as they rock their socks!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to respond to Celesta at firstname.lastname@example.org and remember to share your pics!
Tommy and Soham’s school, Kingsville Public School, has put up a display case for Down Syndrome Awareness. The t-shirts are for sale for $15 each on the school cash online site. Kingsville Public School is asking for the students to purchase a shirt and wear it on March 21 in support of World Down Syndrome Day. They are hoping to make a profit from selling the shirts to then donate to Up About Down.
The boys teacher and DSW in their room have embraced World Down Syndrome Day and thought of making and selling shirts on their own, very touching!
