Lots of socks is a fun initiative to raise the profile of Downs Syndrome throughout the world. The Awareness Day for us was today the19th March and this was chance to raise awareness with our children and their families.
Why socks? Well, because chromosomes look like socks and people with Downs Syndrome have an extra chromosome! “Lots of Socks” is acknowledged around the world as being associated with Down’s Syndrome.
We thank you for your kind donations for Down’s Syndrome Scotland. Here is a quote from them about why today is so special
“This year, we want Down’s Syndrome Awareness Week to reach out to everyone in Scotland as we invite you to #TakeAStepForward and join us in celebrating the value and contribution of people with Down’s syndrome to Scottish life. We still have a lot to do in tackling discrimination and creating truly equal opportunities for everyone living with an extra chromosome.”
