The organization Band of Angels was established in 1994, by Cynthia Hutchison (Kidder), to provide support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families. Their mission is to create "...greater understanding of the full and rich lives of people with differences by helping parents, educators, persons with disabilities, and medical professionals recognize the true potential of all people."
Band of Angels provides hospitals with New Parent Support Packages, has a Job Connection link for people with cognitive disabilities and participate in annual events.
One of the products in the Parent Support Package is the book Common Threads: Celebrating Life With Down Syndrome. This book is co-authored by Cynthia Hutchison (Kidder) and Dr Brian Skotko, who specializes in Genetics and has a sister with Down syndrome. This book is "an essay and photographic celebration of inspirational accomplishments of people of all ages with Down syndrome. Throughout the book there is a common thread - the thread of belief."
Band of Angels is graciously donating Common Threads to this giveaway.
