PostSubject: World Down Syndrome Day   Mon Feb 02, 2009 5:27 pm

Hi All
As you know, World Down Syndrome Day is coming up soon. (March 21) This year is the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the trisomy 21 chromosomes.

IMDSA is holding its 3rd annual Genes Day for World Down Syndrome Day. This is for ALL FORMS OF DOWN SYNDROME!

Genes Day is very exciting and gives you a great opportunity to educate your community on Down syndrome and have fun at the same time.

Participants donate $1 or more to wear their jeans for the day at work or school ($10 donation will get them a special Genes Day T-shirt for the event)

IMDSA provides printable flyers for you to use to take to your school or workplace to help educate others. There is also a list of suggested games and activities for children to better understand Down syndrome in the school.

Everyone makes a team through the special Genes Day Team site and the top fundraising team will receive cool prizes that will further help them with raising their child.

Just go to http://www.imdsa.org/Awareness/GenesDay.htm for more information.

Good Luck and have fun spreading awareness!

Yes it is, but because March 21 falls on Saturday we suggest you do this on March 20. Also, do not put it off and make a team very soon because this something that you do from now until then and you may need to get permission from your workplace or school (or if you don't work, we have ways to do it in the community too)

So, if you go to our site you can get the information on it and make your own team page there.

I would really appreciate it if after you look at our site about Genes Day you put something in your blog about it so your readers will know about it and they can do it too. The DSI is backing IMDSA on this event (meaning they think it is a great idea and have posted info on their site)
