October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month
Down syndrome is an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. Approximately 1 in every 700 babies are born with Down syndrome - about 6,000 babies each year. People with Down syndrome have full, amazing lives! They go to school, have friends, go to college, hold jobs and enjoy many recreational activities! Not sure what to say to a person with Down syndrome? Try saying hello! It could be the start of a beautiful friendship!
$1 of each shirt sold this month will be given to the International Down Syndrome Community who focuses on connecting, supporting and empowering individuals with Down syndrome and their families. You can learn more about this amazing organization at http://theidsc.org
October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we want to honor and remember those who are battling or have battled breast cancer. You are our heroes! #beaware
