We Rocked the Socks!
Just three weeks ago, I started a campaign centered around World Down Syndrome Day to raise awareness and funds for The National Association for Down Syndrome (NADS), which is our local support group here in Chicago. I was approached by We Help Two, which sells these funky socks online. With each pack purchased, We Help Two donates 60% to NADS. On top of this, We Help Two also donates a pair of thermal socks which Nick and I will be taking to our local homeless shelter. My son Nick is 23 years old, he has Down syndrome and autism.
We have exciting news to share. After just three weeks in this campaign, we raised $513.00 for The National Association for Down Syndrome! In addition, 57 people will receive warm socks at our local homeless shelter. 🙂 🙂 🙂

A special thanks to We Help Two for a WONDERFUL campaign. It was super easy to set online, and the socks are shipped and at your door in two days! I highly recommend this company. We Help Two partners with schools, organizations, individuals and non-profits to make twice the difference. They are truly making a difference by raising funds for organizations, and giving back to the community, with thermal sock donations to local homeless shelters. What an impact they make, by helping two ways!

I want to thank everyone for being a part of this campaign, rocking those socks and supporting Down syndrome awareness by purchasing socks and promoting World Down Syndrome Day on social media. Stay tuned for a future blog, when Nick and I take the thermal socks to our local homeless shelter.
That’s what is in my noggin this week!
