What is Lots of Socks Day?
Lots of Socks Day is an international campaign held on World Down Syndrome Day – March 21st - and is focused on celebrating individuals living with Down Syndrome.
People around the world are invited to wear ‘Lots of Socks’ – colourful socks, striped socks, tall socks, polka-dot socks or even three pairs of socks – to help spark conversations and show their support for a community that welcomes everyone.
The following are official hashtags for the WDSD Lots of Socks campaign: #LotsOfSocks, #WorldDownSyndromeDay and #WDSD20. Please feel free to include these hashtags in your own social media post and join the worldwide conversation.
Why March 21st?
The 21st day of the 3rd month of the year (March) which signifies the triplication of the 21st chromosome which results in an individual having Down Syndrome.
If you place two socks heal to heal, it resembles a chromosome.
