BENEFITING: Cayman Islands Charity Network Inc
EVENT DATE: Mar 21, 2017
On Tuesday, March 21st, Cayman will join with countries around the world to show our support for people with Down syndrome. By simply wearing mismatched or colorful socks, you can make a diffence and promote awareness for our Down syndrome community in the Cayman Islands.
Participants are asked to be creative and have fun by posting a "sock selfie" on our facebook page: Cayman Islands World Down Syndrome Day.
Following on last year's success of over CI$19,000.00 raised, we are specifically asking for organizations and individuals to consider a donation of any amount to the Down Syndrome Committee of Special Needs Foundation of Cayman. Thanks to the generous support of our donors in 2016, we were able to use our funds towards offering hope and encouragment to families, providing therapy opportunities from both local and overeas providers, providing support to schools for teaching about special needs and empathy (a National Curriculum standard), and giving a voice to the Down sydnrome community in Cayman through various media.
In our local primary schools, a lesson plan on empathy for those with special needs will once again be distribubted, giving teachers a ready made list of ideas for art, drama, and writing. Our goal for students does not include fundraising, but to create awareness and promote empathy. If you would like more details or a copy of the lesson plan, please contact us today.
