March 21 marks World Down Syndrome Day, and a day which we hold very near to us at Midtown Optometry.
Being the 21st day of the 3rd month, this parallels the extra 'third' chromosome number 21 that causes Down Syndrome.
We decided to celebrate by donating 5% of all sales on 3/21 to the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network. These funds will go towards providing families and medical professionals with resources and education helping individuals with DS to live full and productive lives.
On 3/21 many people will be wearing brightly colored socks to represent the cheerful diversity that our friends with Down Syndrome bring into our lives. We invite you to join us in the #LotsOfSocks campaign by tagging your photos.
