I didn't get a chance to post about this over the weekend, but since it starts today I'm not technically late in spreading the word! :)
Tricia from Unringing The Bell has come up with a great idea for something to do this month:
You can read all about her explanation for the "31 for 21" idea on this post. Basically it is a challenge to post something every day in Oct (31) and 21 refers to the 21st chromosome which people with Down syndrome have an extra copy of.
I post almost every day anyway, so hopefully I'll be up to the challenge! Now every day my post won't be about Down syndrome; I don't think I could come up with 31 straight topics on Ds unless I really had the time to sit and think (which I don't!) LOL She even says you can post on anything you want.
Also, anyone is free to join in on the challenge, whether you have a child with Down syndrome or not! From Tricia: I propose whether you know someone affected by DS that you do it in honor of those living with DS as a part of their lives; to raise awareness of Down syndrome. (And, well, it WOULD be nice if you mentioned that's why you're doing it in at least ONE of your blog entries.) See? Anyone can join in!
