March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day.
On this day, we wear different colored socks to show that we empathize and accept people with Down syndrome.
Different patterned socks remind us how colorful and diverse the world is with people like them. And how interesting and fun it is to be their friend.
Do you know someone with Down syndrome?
We’ve created these fun fact sheets just for the day.
You can download them by clicking on the selected image and saving the file to your device.
We wrote a short text in an accessible language about what the patterned different socks symbolize, so that both young and old can understand and remember it 🙂
Print them at home, in kindergarten or at school and color them together with your child(ren).
Put on different patterned socks and even if you don’t show them to anyone, we’ll know you’re with us.
And if you want to show it to the world, take a photo and share it with the hashtag #happywithdownsyndrome and/or #DifferentColoredSocks
