World Down Syndrome Day

Mar 21, 2022 | Current affairs, Featured, Thursday Daily Bulletin, Tradition

This 21 March, we want to go viral with our slogan of thanks to those who make the lives of people with Down syndrome more beautiful, Can you help us?

This year, at DOWN ESPAÑA, we wanted the campaign for World Down Syndrome Day, which is celebrated today, Monday 21 March, to be a tribute of gratitude to the hundreds of thousands of people who, from their anonymity and without expecting anything in return, make the lives of people with Down syndrome more beautiful. The slogan chosen for this year 2022 is #GraciasPorTanto

DOWN ESPAÑA has launched the campaign spot for World Down Syndrome Day with an emotional story that tells the relationship between Alba and Rosa, and how Alba thanks Rosa, her lifelong neighbourhood shopkeeper, in a surprising way. They ask us to share the video on our social networks to make their message viral. In addition, they have designed a series of actions that you can also join to support the inclusion of people with Down syndrome in society and show them your affection and respect.
Among the statements that have appeared from DOWN SPAIN we highlight “we are aware that this year, the desolate scenario of the invasion of Ukraine has us all on edge, but we ask for an effort so that World Down Syndrome Day is once again a day in which we do not forget the people with Down syndrome, their families and co-workers, school …., nor all those citizens who help, encourage and support them every day. Help us to flood the social networks on 21 March with positive messages and messages of thanks to giving visibility to people with Down syndrome and promote their inclusion in society at all stages of their lives”.

We recommend that you join the movement.

DOWN SPAIN proposes the following actions
to show your support for people with Down syndrome and also for the people who make their lives more beautiful:

1.- Print or draw the #GraciasPorTanto sticker and tell us in a video an anecdote or happy, funny or emotional memory with a person with Down syndrome. Upload it to RRSS and tag us @DownEspana. Hashtag #GraciasPorTanto (ThankYouForSoMuch)

2.- Post a picture of a hug to a person with Down syndrome you care about on your social media with the hashtag #GraciasPorTanto and tagging DOWN ESPAÑA.

3.- Publish your photo making the sign of the hug with the Hashtag #GraciasPorTanto and tagging DOWN ESPAÑA.
