October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

from the NDSS:
October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month! 
Down Syndrome Awareness Month is here! At NDSS we are so excited to celebrate. Here are just a few great ways to get involved:    
  • It's Buddy Walk® season! Most Walks are held in and around October in honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month. Walk together for Down syndrome!
  • The 2013 Times Square Video is now available to view on the NDSS YouTube channel and to purchase for your collection (you can also see what it looked like on the big screen when it aired live)! 
  • Are you inspired by someone with Down syndrome? Share your story with the My Great Story campaign!  
  • Compete, celebrate or create a unique fundraising campaign with NDSS Your Way!   
  • Share the many NDSS resources, including our Down syndrome factsmyths & truths and preferred language guide with friends and family, teachers, colleagues and via social media!   
  • Check out and share our new "Get to Know Me" inclusion posters and lesson plans in your local schools! 
  • Become an NDSS DS-Ambassador and advocate for people with Down syndrome with members of Congress!    
Much more where these came from! For more information and other ideas, check out our Down Syndrome Awareness Month page at ndss.org/DSAM2013.
