Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center

Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day 2020!

On March 21, we will be celebrating World Down Syndrome Day!
 

Why March 21?

The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome. The Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center will be celebrating World Down Syndrome Day with the Random Acts of Kindness Campaign!

***NOTICE**

The #WDSD2020 fundraiser at Skyline Diner has been postponed until further notice. 


We can still celebrate #WDSD2020!

At the DSAHRC at the CFDS, we know everyone can use some positivity in their lives at this time. We’re going to make that happen by encouraging everyone to participate in the Random Acts of Kindness Campaign in recognition of World Down Syndrome Day this Saturday, 3/21.

We can all participate from a distance, and here are just a few ideas.

  • Call a friend or family member
  • Send an e-card
  • Send an e-gift card
  • Order take out food from local restaurants

Help put a smile on people’s faces in the name of Down syndrome! Make sure to post on social media and spread kindness to those around you. Share your Random Acts of Kindness (from a distance!) with us in the comments! #WDSD2020 #positivity #smile #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness

How else can you recognize World Down Syndrome Day?

  • Wear Royal Blue and Yellow and post on social media with the #WDSD2020! Tag @cfdsny on Facebook and Instagram and we will share your post! Encourage friends and family to join in and wear royal blue and yellow to celebrate.

Who We Are

The Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center at the Center for Disability Services provides parent-to-parent and professional services and support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families.

We offer support programs, educational services, social events, community events and up-to-date news and resources for families, professionals and individuals. We also work to educate the greater community about Down syndrome and to help individuals become self-advocates.

From even before a child is born, throughout childhood and adolescence and into adulthood, Down Syndrome Aim High is here to help each family and individual achieve their goals. We want every person with Down syndrome to reach their fullest potential and to become fully included members of their communities.
