World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is observed in more than 60 countries. Organisations and communities around the world promote WDSD to raise people’s awareness and understanding of Down syndrome.
Lots of Socks
The “Lots of socks” campaign is a fun, easy way to help raise awareness for Down syndrome. This campaign begun by an organisation called Down Syndrome International to encourage people to start a conversation about diversity, inclusion and acceptance.
Why odd socks? Chromosomes are shaped a little like a sock and people with Down syndrome have an extra copy of the 21st chromosome.
Instead of selling socks this year we are encouraging everyone to be creative and wear their own odd and colourful socks.
