Lots of socks 2020

March 21

We want to get the world talking about WDSD on 21 March 2020!

How can you help? By wearing LOTS OF SOCKS!

But not just any socks… wear our official #LotsOfSocks socks, other brightly coloured socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock… even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. If you do not normally wear socks, wear them!

Wear them at home, nursery, school, college, university, work, play, travel, on holiday…wherever you will be on 21 March!

Make sure to take pictures and videos and post them on social media

Make sure you use the hashtags #LotsOfSocks, #WorldDownSyndromeDay and #WDSD20

The official #LotsOfSocks

Each year Down Syndrome International creates a new official #LotsOfSocks design and the socks are sold around the world to raise awareness. In 2019 over 32,000 pairs were sold!! The official #LotsOfSocks design for 2020 was inspired by artist Jijo Das. You can read about Jijo and his sock design in our #LotsOfSocks blog.

#LotsOfSocks socks and our t-shirts are available from the WDSD shop which will open for pre-orders towards the end of 2019.

Get involved
