Down syndrome: Call for photos!

Call for photos: Down syndrome on Times Square

Dear Friend:

Celebrate the Buddy Walk's 14th anniversary by entering the Times Square Video Contest. The video, which showcases individuals with Down syndrome from all over the world, will air on the Panasonic News Corporation Astrovision screen in Times Square on September 28 at 10:30 a.m. The New York City Buddy Walk™ will immediately follow the video at the Great Hill in Central Park.

Each year, NDSS receives thousands of photo submissions for the Times Square Video Contest. Because the Buddy Walk™ promotes acceptance and inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome, the winning photographs feature children, teens and adults with Down syndrome working, playing and learning with friends and family. Please limit photos to no more than three per individual with Down syndrome. If more than three pictures are received, only the first three will be considered.

Click here to see last year's video. Be prepared to be blown away!

And let's not forget my favorite DS sites:

  • Band of Angels -- Buy greeting cards, calendars, and -- a treasure -- the Common Threads coffee table book. It's gorgeous!

  • Beautiful dolls from Downi Creations

  • And here's a great selection of t-shirts from Cafe Press:
    - Down syndrome isn't scary - It's just different.
    - Love does not count chromosomes.
    - The more the merrier
    - God made ME in His image, too
    - My child took me to Holland -- And I never looked back!
    - And then there's this one that you have to see for yourself.

    In closing, read Welcome to Holland
