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 info@upaboutdown.org and remember to share your pics!

Hi Families,

UAD has been offered a wonderful opportunity to partner with Nikki Vos this summer, for photoshoots and more.

She is a first year photography student at Lambton College. She currently runs a small hobby photography business that focuses on providing affordable, quality photos to all families and individuals.

This summer, Nikki is hoping to work on a two part personal photography story project, The T-21 Project, ‘21. She wrote, “As someone who has been blessed with a family member with Down syndrome, the goal of the project is to highlight and share the stories of Ontario families who have also been blessed with a family member with Down syndrome. This project will provide families with an affordable way to represent their individuality and uniqueness.”

From Nikki:
“The first part of the project will include family or individual mini photoshoots, as well as a questionnaire form prior to the shoot. Part of the proceeds from the photoshoot will be donated back to your association. The second part will include putting together a photo story book that shares a variety of stories and photos from the families who have participated in the photoshoots. Families will be given the option to have their stories included, if desired, and UAD the WEDSA will be given the opportunity to use the books as a fundraiser.”

“I absolutely love Jackson Park, and think it would be perfect for this project! I’ve created an advertisement poster with the link for participant signup:

Thank you,

Nikki
