The National Buddy Walk® Program is proud to partner with BandAbout, a company that makes it easy to show your support for people in your life with Down syndrome. BandAbout provides customizable photo bracelets that can be designed on their website using photos of loved ones as well as text and graphics.  BandAbout turns the designs into beautiful canvas bracelets that make it simple to share one’s story with friends and strangers alike. The bracelets are also highly personal and meaningful thank you gifts for supporters.  For each NDSS and Buddy Walk® bracelet purchased, BandAbout donates 40% of the revenue directly to NDSS (or the sponsoring organization if it creates an account with BandAbout.)  The BandAbout team enjoyed attending the NYC Buddy Walk® last year, and looks forward to this year’s Walk.
