Lots of socks 2020
January 1 - October 12
Get people talking… about Down syndrome
In order to get people talking about Down syndrome, we ask our supporters to wear Lots Of Socks. These might be mismatched socks, your craziest socks or even 3 socks on each foot! Whatever it takes to get people to ask you about them.
For World Down Syndrome Day on 21 March every year, people all around the world wear Lots Of Socks with pride and share photos across social media.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who wore LOTS OF SOCKS on 21 March!
Here are just a few of the pictures that you shared with us on social media:
World Down Syndrome Day may have passed this year but you can wear Lots Of Socks whenever you like, you don’t have to wait for the next WDSD. Wear your socks with pride and get people talking TODAY!
The official #LotsOfSocks
Each year Down Syndrome International creates a new official #LotsOfSocks design and the socks are sold to raise awareness and to raise vital funds so that they may continue their work supporting people with Down syndrome around the world.
The design of the official #LotsOfSocks for 2020 is based on a design submitted by Jijo Das, the artist behind the brand Art of My Optimus who also happens to have Down syndrome. 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.
You can follow the action all year around on WDSD social media:
