The Sapphire Family recently participated in the Down Syndrome Australia initiative, “Lots of Socks”.

The aim of the “Lots of Socks” campaign is to raise awareness of Down Syndrome among the community, as well as raise funds for Down Syndrome Australia. The idea behind this initiative is acceptance of all our differences, and what makes us unique as an individual.

Socks come in all shapes, sizes, and designs, just like each of us. This year’s design was selected through a national competition held by Down Syndrome Australia.

The winning artists for the sock designs came from Mark Polonsky (VIC) and Josie McAndrew (NSW). Mark’s inspiration came from an Australian theme – due to his love for animals and Josie’s, a tribute to Australian music legend, Keith Urban.

Mark and his awesome design!
Josie and her awesome design!

To help show your support, why not order your own pair – or enough for the whole family this coming winter! These are more than just socks – they represent inclusion, acceptance and diversity within our community and are a great way for everyone to show support for Down Syndrome.

From the Sapphire Family (and Down Syndrome Australia), thank you for your support!
