Let's get people talking about WDSD on 21 March 2018!

How? By wearing #LotsOfSocks!

But not just any socks...

...wear our official #LotsOfSocks socks, other brightly coloured socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock… even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. If you do not normally wear socks, then wear them. And why stop at socks? Wear our #LotsOfSocks t-shirts, WDSD t-shirts and other brightly coloured clothing.


The choice is yours, but we ask you to join us wearing something people will ask you about so that you can tell them all about WDSD. It is easy to do. So whether you are at home, nursery, school, college, university, work, play, travel, holiday or anywhere, join in!

On 21 March 2018, wear #LotsOfSocks and invite all your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.


Resources, including posters, leaflets, logos, social media toolkits and fundraising pack, are now available. Please contact our International Office for any of these items.

But make sure you use the hashtag #LotsOfSocks and #WDSD18 across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other platforms so we can again create a big online presence. 


Take part in #LotsOfSocks and also support people with Down syndrome by:

  1. Ordering Official WDSD Merchandise from your national Down syndrome organisation or from Down Syndrome International.
  2. Raising funds to support people with Down syndrome. 
  3. Donating this money to your local, regional or national Down syndrome charity BUT consider donating at least 25% to Down Syndrome International to support our outreach training programmes in developing countries. 

If you would like to raise some funds now or in the future for WDSD or organise a fundraising event, go to our WDSD Fundraising page for step-by-step guidance.
