A Trio of International Days!

Mar 21, 2012

Today is interesting in that the world observes three International Days at once!  Today is World Poetry Day, which is a UNESCO day; International Day of Nowruz; and World Down Syndrome Day.

Down Syndrome affects about 1 in every 800 babies born in the United States and is a condition that affects the way a child develops, both mentally and physically.  You can learn a lot more about Down Syndrome here: http://kidshealth.org/parent/medical/genetic/down_syndrome.html.  Please consider helping out with research to cure Down Syndrome.  https://www.dsrf.org/support_us/donations
