NDSS 2012 World Down Syndrome Day Video Featuring 3:21 T-Shirt Photos
World Down Syndrome Day was established in 2006 by Down Syndrome International, with the goal of raising awareness and mobilizing support and recognition of the dignity, rights and well-being of people with Down syndrome across the world. March 21, the 21st day of the third month of the year, was chosen to symbolize the third copy of chromosome 21 present in Trisomy 21, the most common form of Down syndrome. This year, World Down Syndrome Day is especially significant as it is the first time that the day will be officially observed by the United Nations.
The National Down Syndrome Society recently launched a signature line of t-shirts featuring 3: 21 on the front, symbolic of the third copy of chromosome 21 in Trisomy 21, and the NDSS logo on the back. Thank you to all of those who have purchased the 3: 21 t-shirts and shared your photos!
