Happy World Down Syndrome Day 2011
7:29:00 AM | Comments
March 21st was chosen by Down Syndrome International (DSI) to mark World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) with the inaugural day being launched in Singapore in 2006.
The date (21st day of 3rd month) was chosen to signify the uniqueness of Down syndrome in the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome.
All DSI members, DS related organizations and individuals worldwide are encouraged to observe World Down Syndrome Day together.
This year, Reece's Rainbow is celebrating World Down Syndrome Day both at home and in Sofia, Bulgaria with our Birth Support Outreach Project, Connecting the Rainbow! We encourage you to follow along with the CTR blog.
We hope you all have your WDSD tshirts and notebooks, totes and other great items with our World DS Day graphic to proudly share the beauty and uniqueness that is Down syndrome to those you come into contact with on this special day!
