Story

It's not too late to help us meet our match!! Please consider a generous donation by 4-5-2024. It means a lot to us and to millions of people with Down syndrome around the world.

People with Down syndrome are awesome! And they deserve to live a long and healthy life. Please help me support the Global Down Syndrome Foundation by donating to my World Down Syndrome Day fundraising page. People with Down syndrome are born with 3 copies of chromosome 21 instead of two. In the 1990s most countries started using those numbers 3-21 to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day.

GLOBAL provides transformative life-saving resources including medical care guidelines for people with Down syndrome. Those resources are being translated into many different languages and will make a huge difference!

GLOBAL also supports over 400 scientists and over 2,500 patients all working to elongate life and improve health outcomes.

About the charity

GLOBAL is the largest non-profit in the U.S. working to save lives & dramatically improve health outcomes for people with Down syndrome. We support 400 scientists & 2,200+ patients from 33 states & 10 countries. GLOBAL organizes the AcceptAbility Gala & the Be Beautiful Be Yourself Fashion Show.
