A Way to Show Support

People who have Down Syndrome usually have an extra full or partial of a chromosome. It is said that one in every 691 babies in the United States is born with Down Syndrome. About 400,000 people in the United States have Down Syndrome. About 6,000 babies are born in the United States with Down Syndrome every year. There are many programs that are made that helps support Down Syndrome. There is a major national association called NDSS. I am going to use this program to help support Down Syndrome.
You can donate to the association. You can donate online, by mail or fax, or by telephone. You can even donate in honor of someone you know with Down Syndrome. The association even accepts gifts as donations, including old or used vehicles. They take in anything that they possibly can. Anything and everything is greatly appreciated.
