Every year, on March 21 (to honor the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome presented in Down syndrome), the world comes together to raise awareness and advocate for people living with Down syndrome.

It's the FINAL day of our 21 Days of Hope campaign! Please DONATE and SHARE! We have a MATCHING GRANT for 21 of our waiting children with Down syndrome!
It's also not too late to order t-shirts, journals, cups, tote bags, etc with our WDSD “One Word that Describes Your Child with DS” graphic on them to wear and use proudly throughout the year! Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day with Reece’s Rainbow!
We'd LOVE to hear from YOU! Share YOUR child with Down Syndrome in the Comments!
