World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is an annual global awareness day on March 21 that has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The DSA of Pittsburgh is excited to share the many ways that we are celebrating WDSD! From inclusion projects to fundraisers, we've got you covered to make a difference this WDSD season. Are you ready to ROCK YOUR SOCKS at the virtual WDSD Dance on 3/21? From 3-4P will be “General Admission” where DJ Eric will be playing your favorite Disney themes, “Baby Shark,” etc. Make sure those kids are rested and ready to party! Then from 4-5P will be the “Main Event” where DJ Eric invites our teens and adults to party to contemporary and dance hits! Come for one or both hours! Once you register, your Zoom link is your all access pass. Now we have added an "After Party" with Mikayla Holmgren, self-advocate, model, speaker, and athlete! "After Party" will be immediately following the dance, so hang tight on Zoom. Can't decide what to wear? Don't worry. DSA of Pittsburgh has brought you lots of options!. We have custom-made t-shirts (orders ended 3/3) for purchase as well as PALS socks (orders ended 3/3)! Visit any Pittsburgh area Penn Station Subs and "Round-Up for Down Syndrome" and funds raised support DSAP. We have also partnered with One Hope Wine and 10% of sales now through 3/21 go directly to DSAP! Links to both campaigns are below. Feel free to share them with friends and family. Lastly, we are encouraging all to take the “Pledge 3-21” and donate $21 a month to sustain the DSA of Pittsburgh as we continue to provide more programming, Family Connection Series, Speaker Series, the Family Care Fund, and some exciting new initiatives like “New Parents Welcome Boxes.” ROCK YOUR SOCKS for Down syndrome, Pittsburgh!
