Southern Tier Shows Love For Those With Down Syndrome By Wearing “Crazy” Socks [PHOTOS]

According to the National Down Syndrome Society, one in every 691 babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome, with more than 400,000 people with Down syndrome living and thriving in the United States.

Today is World Down Syndrome Day. A global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations on March 21st since 2012. Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder. But there is still so much more we can do.

In support of World Down Syndrome Day, we invite you to get informed and then share what you learn with others so that we can break down the stereotyped walls. And to show love for those with Down syndrome,today is the day to wear crazy socks. Wear brightly colored socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock…maybe even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. If you don’t normally wear socks, then wear them! And why stop at socks? Wear bright clothes too and then when people ask you what’s up, you can tell them you’re supporting those with Down syndrome because let’s face it- people with Down syndrome deserve that same love and attention as those of us without!

If you’re supporting those with Down syndrome by wearing crazy funky socks, we’d love to see them. Snap a picture and email it to Traci.Taylor@TownsquareMedia.com so we can add it to this gallery!
