March 21st marks World Down Sydrome Day (WDSD) and people from all over the world are joining the celebration by rockin’ their mismatched socks.
World Down Syndrome day is a global awareness day observed by the United Nations since 2012. Down Syndrome International encourages participants from all over the world to engage in their own activities and events to help raise awareness, as well as celebrate individuals with Down syndrome.
“Lots of Socks” is a simple, yet powerful campaign that encourages people to wear mismatched socks on WDSD to represent a celebration of differences. The initiative is intended to spark conversations about diversity, uniqueness, inclusion and acceptance of all beings.
To get involved in the campaign, be sure to bring out your mismatched socks and wear em’ proudly because “our differences are what make us great.”
