In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, the National Down Syndrome Congress and six other national Down syndrome organizations are promoting “Random Acts of Kindness” in the United States.
In collaboration with Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action, Global Down Syndrome Foundation, International Down Syndrome Coalition, International Mosaic Down Syndrome Association, Lumind Foundation and National Down Syndrome Society, we have created a toolkit for WDSD 2015 that you can use to share information about Down syndrome with your community, celebrate people with Down syndrome, and spread a little love and kindness in the name of Down syndrome!
It’s as easy as 1-2-3-4!
- On March 21st, wear a t-shirt that says something about Down syndrome (your NDSC Convention t-shirt is a great option!)
- Choose an act of kindness, like taking cookies to a fire station, or checking in on an elderly neighbor (we have a list of suggestions to help get you started!)
- Print a WDSD postcard and give it out or place it with your Random Act.
- Take pictures of the random act and post on your social media pages with the hashtag #WDSD15. We’ll have people on the receiving end of our kindness, and the whole world watching on Facebook and Twitter.
Let’s make this the biggest, best World Down Syndrome Day yet!
