The #RockYourSocks campaign exists to raise awareness of Down syndrome.
How can you help celebrate WDSD and raise awareness?
We encourage everyone to raise awareness about WDSD in their school, community, club or workplace to get people talking about Down syndrome and help people #SeeTheAbility.
It’s easy to do so come on, join in! Here are some ideas to get you started:
World Down Syndrome Day is just around the corner this March 21st.
All you need to do is choose some socks that are going to get noticed. Get your friends, class mates and colleagues to join in too.
World Down Syndrome Day is Tuesday 21st March and we in Down Syndrome Ireland Louth Meath Branch invite you to “Rock Your Socks 4 DSILMB”.
On World Down Syndrome Day 2024, we call for people and organisations around the world to be…
End The Stereotypes
Stereotypes are harmful!
For people with Down syndrome and intellectual disabilities, stereotypes can stop us from being treated like other people. We get treated like children, we are underestimated and we are excluded. Sometimes we are treated very badly or even abused.
We want you to wear the loudest socks you can find, and wear them with pride to support people with Down Syndrome.
If you are a business, you and your colleagues, managers or even customers could get involved with a bucket collection on the counter or in the office. If you are a school, you could hold a Rock Your Socks Day with every teacher and student getting involved.
Do whatever you like to raise awareness and funds for Down Syndrome Ireland Louth Meath Branch. Your donations can be accepted at https://www.idonate.ie/event/rockyoursocks4dsilmb or on our Donate page on our website https://dsilmb.ie/donate/.
