Congratulations Jessica!!!

Jessica Rotolo from Canada is the WINNER of our LotsOfSocks design competition.

Jessica’s fantastic sock design has been selected from hundreds of entries to inspire the #LotsOfSocks design for #WorldDownSyndromeDay 2023.

Our team have worked with Jessica and the sock manufacturer to create a design that we just know you are going to ❤️🧡💛 LOVE LOVE LOVE 💚💙💜

The new design will be available to purchase from the LotsOfSocks shop later this year, with funds going to support the work of Down Syndrome International, improving quality of life for people with Down syndrome worldwide.

What is ‘Lots Of Socks’ all about?

The #LotsOfSocks campaign exists to raise awareness about Down syndrome.

All you need to do is choose some socks that will get noticed (or wear our OFFICIAL LotsOfSocks) – they might be mismatched socks or your craziest and most colourful socks, whatever takes your fancy!

When anyone asks you about your socks, you can tell them, “I’m wearing them to raise awareness of Down syndrome”.

Jessica’s socks designed for 2023 will be available from the LotsOfSocks shop later this year.


Thank you Jessica, and everyone else who submitted a design. There were so many great ideas, we really were spoilt for choice!
