World Down Syndrome Day~ Rock Your Socks

Mark your calendars for 3/21/17, that’s World Down Syndrome Day!

“World Down Syndrome Day is observed on March 21. On this day, people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world organize and participate in activities and events to raise public awareness and create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well-being of people with Down syndrome.”

One of the trademarks of World Down Syndrome Day, is rocking your socks!  This year I have a partnership with We Help Two, to advocate,  raise money and awareness for Down syndrome.  It’s easy and fun way to help out by ordering some cool, funky socks. We Help Two, sent me sample packages of these socks.  They are really bright, fun and well made.

You can purchase these socks at $15.oo per 3-pack, and it will be mailed to you, using 2-day shipping.  A large portion of the proceeds from this campaign, will go directly to the National Association for Syndrome, (NADS) http://www.nads.org.

AND ON TOP OF THAT for every pack of funky socks sold, We Help Two will give a pair of warm, thermal socks to donate to our local homeless shelter.

Help Nick and I knock the socks off World Down Syndrome Day by raising awareness, along with buying and wearing some funky socks.  You’ll be supporting NADS and helping the homeless.  That’s a win win for everyone!
