Lots of Socks Campaign- World Down Syndrome Day

In a world that celebrates uniqueness and diversity, the Lots Of Socks campaign shines a vibrant message for Down Syndrome.

Down Syndrome is a genetic condition that affects approximately one in every 700 births worldwide.

Since 2013, the Lots Of Socks campaign has become a beacon of awareness and acceptance, inviting everyone to join in, celebrating individuals with Down Syndrome.


Why socks you ask?

Well, the answer lies in the chromosomes. People with Down Syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21, which is shaped like a pair of socks. Thus, the humble sock serves as a powerful symbol, representing the uniqueness and individuality of those with Down Syndrome.

By wearing mismatches or colourful socks, participants in the campaign not only show their support but also spark the conversation and raise awareness about Down Syndrome.


By embracing diversity and celebrating individuals with Down Syndrome, we enrich our communities and create a more inclusive society for all.

So, to show your support and help spark the conversation around Down Syndrome, wear your colourful or mismatched socks on 21st March and help raise awareness!

When we celebrate our differences, we embrace the richness of the human experience!


Ways to show your support


-       Donate to Down Syndrome International (DSI)

-       Ask your friends, family, schools and workplaces to get involved by wearing colourful or mismatched socks, or by making a donation
