Wear Green ~
Monday, March 19th is wear green day. Wear green from from your head to your toes or anywhere in between!
Crazy Sock Day ~On Wednesday, March 21, everyone is encouraged to wear 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. March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day.
Down Syndrome International's campaign aims to:
- Explain how people with Down syndrome can and do make meaningful contributions throughout their lives, whether in schools, workplaces, living in the community, public and political life, culture, media, recreation, leisure and sport;
- Explain how negative attitudes and a lack of knowledge about their potential as individuals prevent people with Down syndrome from having opportunities to make contributions;
- Empower people with Down syndrome (and those supporting them) to advocate for their rights and opportunities to make meaningful contributions and
- Reach out to key stakeholders including educators, employers, public authorities, media and the wider community to ensure they see the benefits of enabling people with Down syndrome to make meaningful contributions and encourage these stakeholders to bring about change and disseminate this message.
