Lots Of Socks campaign

Believe it or not, socks get people talking!

On 21 March, choose some socks that are going to get noticed!

They might be mismatched socks or your boldest and most colourful socks, whatever takes your fancy!

The idea is to start a conversation, so when people ask you about your socks, you can tell them, “I’m wearing them to raise awareness of Down syndrome”.

Then, you can tell them everything you want them to know about Down syndrome.



More socks!

Get your friends, class mates and colleagues to join in too!

The official 2024 sock design was inspired by David from Guatemala, who just so happens to have Down syndrome.
