Awareness & Advocacy for Anders
Awareness & Advocacy for Anders

In honor of my son, Anders, age 4, and in honor of World Down Syndrome Day, our family celebrated by doing the following on 3/21: 

- Anders sported a bright yellow "3:21" NDSS t-shirt at daycare.

- I ordered “Taking Down Syndrome to School” and send each of his classmates home with a copy and note explaining the significance of the day.

- Our YMCA daycare director posted NDSS posters with facts about Down syndrome at five center sites in our town and she coordinated a fundraising effort to support our local Down syndrome group, “Up With Downs.” 

- Our local news station interviewed the YMCA director, me and even Anders!  The story showcases the importance of this day and that kids with Down syndrome are “More Alike than Different!”
