“See the ability.” That’s the empowering quote the Canadian Down Syndrome Society (CDSS) chose to feature on the branded bandanas it received through a 4imprint one by one® grant. This slogan proudly declares that those in the Down syndrome community can do anything the rest of the world can. Handed out to hundreds of attendees, including people with Down syndrome, families, siblings and working professionals at this year’s national conference, the Fandana’s message was heard loud and clear. Not only did the branded headbands unite conference attendees, but they continue to be a great conversation starter.
The conference is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what the CDSS does to help people “See the ability.” As the voice of the approximately 45,000 people with Down syndrome in Canada, this organization offers support, information and advocacy to those with Down syndrome as well as their families and community.
