Why should I wear odd socks for World Down Syndrome Day?
Odd socks were chosen as a symbol for WDSD because chromosomes are shaped like socks, and those with Down Syndrome have an extra one.
People will also be using the hashtag #LotsOfSocks on Twitter to share their thoughts and support.
You can hold events in your work or a local group to fundraise, or donate on your own to Down Syndrome International or a local charity of your choice.
