WDSD: #RockYourSocks

April 1, 2023

#RockYourSocks is a fun & easy way to raise awareness for Down syndrome by wearing colourful and/or mismatched socks. It aims to arouse curiosity among the community and remind them that differences can be beautiful too.

On this day, we encourage everyone to wear odd socks to show their support for the Down syndrome community. 

Why socks?

Odd socks were chosen as a symbol for WDSD because chromosomes are shaped like socks, and those with Down syndrome have an extra chromosome.

Lend us your feet!

2. Including these hashtags: #WorldDownSyndromeDay #WithUsNotForUs #RockYourSocks
