As you may know this Saturday 3/21 is World Down Syndrome Day! It is a day for all of us to celebrate people with Down Syndrome. It is also a time for us to share our pride and love with the world. It’s a time to raise awareness for our community and to shed some sunshine onto the subject of Down Syndrome. What better way to spread that love and sunshine than joining in a day of random acts of kindness in the name of WDSD15.
National Down Syndrome Congress,Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action, Global Down Syndrome Foundation, International Down Syndrome Coalition, International Mosaic Down Syndrome Association, Lumind Foundation, National Down Syndrome Society along with hundreds of local Down Syndrome groups and thousands of individuals will be spreading the kindness this Saturday.
How does it work?
- On March 21st, wear a t-shirt that says something about Down syndrome
- Choose an act of kindness, like taking cookies to a fire station, or checking in on an elderly neighbor
- Print a WDSD postcard (like the one above) create your own, or hand write a little note and give it out or place it with your Random Act.
- Take pictures of the random act and post on your social media pages with the hashtag #WDSD15. We’ll have people on the receiving end of our kindness, and the whole world watching on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
