Go speechless for World Down Syndrome Day

The UpsideDowns Education Trust is working hard to give a voice to kids with Down syndrome. By funding their speech language therapy, they provide life-changing education so that these kids can learn to talk, read and write.

This year, they’re celebrating World Down Syndrome Day by going speechless – and they need your help!

It’s super easy:
  1. Donate $21 to UpsideDowns here 
  2. Challenge 21 friends to do the same
  3. Go speechless on 21st March this year
Meet Miles, and learn a bit more about what they do and why – or follow them on Facebook here, or read the recent Newshub article here.
