Down Syndrome International invites everyone across the world to wear LOTS OF SOCKS on 21 March 2016 to raise awareness on World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD).

We want to get people talking about WDSD on 21 March!

We can do this if we all wear socks…BUT NOT JUST ANY SOCKS…wear our Official LOTS OF SOCKS socks, other brightly coloured socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock… even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. If you don’t normally wear socks, then wear them. AND WHY STOP AT SOCKS? Wear clothing with the LOTS OF SOCKS logo, our LOTS OF SOCKS t-shirts, WDSD t-shirts  or other brightly coloured clothing.

The choice is yours, but we ask you to join us wearing something which 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 2016, wear LOTS OF SOCKS and invite all your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.

You can take part 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 money 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 “Reach Out”, our outreach training programmes in developing countries.
