#Socksbattle4DS: Socks battle for Down Syndrome


The Jérôme Lejeune Foundation and the World Youth Alliance are launching a European campaign on social networks for the World Down Syndrome Day. We invite you to wear mismatched socks during this campaign.

The goal?

Wearing mismatched socks is a fun and simple way of getting people to reflect on difference. People are thus encouraged to question their perception of people with Down syndrome for the World Down Syndrome Day, on the 21st of March.

If you think that difference is an enrichment for our society, “being different is normal”, say so with socks! If you want to support the cause of people with Down syndrome, do so on the 21st of March and join the campaign!

How to join us?

Wear mismatched socks with lively colours and publish them on social networks using the keyword #Socksbattle4DS
The mobilisation starts on the 4th of March and will end on Saturday the 21st of March, International Down Syndrome Day.
