Why Should I Wear Odd Socks for World Down Syndrome Day?

Q:
Why should I wear odd socks for World Down Syndrome Day?

A:
Odd socks were chosen as a symbol for WDSD because chromosomes are shaped like socks, and those with Down Syndrome have an extra one.

People will also be using the hashtag #LotsOfSocks on Twitter to share their thoughts and support.

You can hold events in your work or a local group to fundraise, or donate on your own to Down Syndrome International or a local charity of your choice.
