10th Annual World Down Syndrome Day Is On March 21
Make-A-Wish works to grant the wishes of children between the age of 2 ½ and 18 who are battling a critical illness, or who are suffering from a progressive, degenerative, or malignant condition that places the child’s life in jeopardy. Last year alone, more than 14,000 wishes were granted across the country! Make-A-Wish helps to bring hope, strength, and joy back into the lives of children, and this year during the 10th Annual World Down Syndrome Day, you may choose to play a part in helping to grant a wish for a local child through a car donation to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.
Learn More About Down Syndrome
The mission of World Down Syndrome Day is to raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, and what it means to have Down syndrome. The day is meant to educate people, showing them that people with Down syndrome are people, just like everyone else, but people who may need additional assistance and support. People with Down syndrome deserve the same opportunities and choices as everyone else.
This year on World Down Syndrome Day, you can help to spread awareness to ensure that each and every person with Down syndrome is receiving proper treatment. Down Syndrome International (DSI) encourages people all over the world to attend World Down Syndrome Day activities that will raise awareness for Down syndrome and to start activities and events of their own. If you cannot attend an event, consider using social media to spread awareness. Find a World Down Syndrome Day event here.
