Whatever you choose to do, make sure you #CONNECT

#CONNECT

Join the 21 day challenge

From 1st to 21st March we will send you daily messages to help you learn about, advocate for and support people with Down syndrome.

Fundraise

By doing something that you love or by setting yourself a new challenge you can raise money to help improve the lives of people with Down syndrome around the world.

Share your story

The best way to promote awareness of Down syndrome is for people with Down syndrome to share their own stories in their own words.

Join the #LotsOfSocks campaign

Get people talking about Down syndrome by wearing ‘Lots of Socks’. These might be mismatched socks or your craziest socks, whatever it takes to start a conversation.

Get informed

Learn about Down syndrome from people with Down syndrome. Share your new knowledge with your freinds, family and colleagues.

Take part in an event

Find events going on in your area and online that you can join. Visit our Events page.

Attend the WDSD @ UN side event

Hear from people with Down syndrome on the theme of ‘CONNECT’ at the virtual event on Friday 19 March.

Light up a landmark

Light up the world with red and blue for WDSD – it could be a significant landmark, a monument or building. Contact us for a digital copy of the WDSD logo.

Give a little (or a lot)

Make a donation to Down Syndrome International (DSi) or to a Down syndrome organisation of your choice and feel great!

Share on social media

Social media is a powerful tool enabling us to CONNECT with people around the globe. Together our voices are the loudest!

Organise an event

What about organising a virtual coffee morning, a virtual quiz or an online disco?

Invite us to co-host your Facebook event to share it with the world.

Write or record something

Why not make a video and upload it to DownTV?

Or write about what #CONNECT means to you in a blog?

Advocate for change

Take a look at our Easy Read self-advocacy guide.

Find out about self-advocacy and the human rights you can speak up for.

Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder.

Join in with us to create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome on 21 March.
