This past summer, Green Shield Canada Community Giving Committee representative, Denise Turner and Grant applicant, Michelle Mastellotto presented Up About Down President, Sue Cyr and her son Andrew with a cheque for $1,600.00 to be used towards the Down Syndrome Awareness Book Project. This features a local author, Cindy Lasi, who has written a new children’s book called “A B C D is for Down” about No-limit-Noah, her son, a boy with Down Syndrome, along with children of all abilities who lead typical lives that take them on adventures through the alphabet. This book is innovative in that it focuses on the “normalness” of individuals with special needs.
Up About Down will distribute copies of this book to 118 schools and 24 public libraries in Windsor and Essex County and include readings by the author and individuals with Down Syndrome during Down Syndrome Awareness Week, November 2 – 8, 2014 with media coverage.
In grateful appreciation to Green Shield Canada Community Giving Program, a bookplate will be placed on the inside cover of each book, acknowledging Green Shield Canada for its generous support of this project.
Up About Down – the Windsor-Essex Down Syndrome Association is an organization of people committed to enhancing the quality of life for individuals with Down Syndrome and their families. We strive to provide positive and accurate information through advocacy and education thereby raising awareness throughout the community.
We want to thank Michelle Mastellotto, one of our parents and Nick’s Mom, for making this generous gift possible.

Sincerely,
Suzanne Cyr,
President, Up About Down, Windsor-Essex Down Syndrome Association
