Join us in celebrating World Down Syndrome Day! For every comment on our Facebook post with a photo of crazy socks we will donate $10 dollars to the Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry (DSAL) (up to a total of $500)
March 21, or 3-21, is a symbolic date to celebrate people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world. The date, 3-21 represents Trisomy 21, the medical term for Down syndrome, which is the third replication of the 21st chromosome.
As part of the celebration around the world, people are encouraged to wear crazy socks. The crazy sock initiative was formed to get people talking and asking questions about Down Syndrome. Another reason for wearing mismatched socks is to promote the celebration of differences. Some buddies wear the same set of mismatched socks to also point out that we are more alike than different!
