World Down Syndrome Day - raising awareness through videos and socks!

World Down Syndrome Day Sally Phillips

World Down Syndrome Day is taking place today, with a wealth of events across the globe raising awareness – including "carpool karaoke" and an inclusive film competition.

You may have already seen a video of a "carpool karaoke" lip sync video in support of World Down Syndrome Day, which features 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri track, A Thousand Years. The parents in the video (watch below) are all part of a Facebook group called Designer Genes, which was created for parents who have a child with Down’s Syndrome born in 2013 and 2014.
