March 2021

Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is a fantastic day, officially observed by the United Nations since 2012 and celebrated as a global awareness day annually on the 21st March.

This year our charity partner, Down Syndrome Ireland, is encouraging individuals, families, schools and companies to help raise awareness so that together we can change perceptions and enable people with Down syndrome to speak up, be heard and be respected as valued members of society.

One of the ways you can help is by asking your family, friends, students or colleagues to wear their most colourful and fun socks on Sunday, March 21st and share their photos/videos across social media using #LotsOfSocks4DSI and let’s get people talking!

We look forward to seeing lots and lots of your socks on the 21st!
