Ambassadors are the faces of Save Down Syndrome, representing the movement in their everyday lives! Being an ambassador can stop at representing our movement online and in your daily live, or it can extend on to make larger impacts with Save Down Syndrome- it’s up to you!
Volunteers assist board members and ambassadors with their work. Currently, all volunteer opportunities are online, providing easy access for those who struggle to get out into their community. As long as you have an internet connection, a computer, or a smart phone, you can volunteer with Save Down Syndrome! If you are a student in need of volunteer hours, we have you covered- just attach the form you need signed in a reply to the confirmation email you will receive!
SAVE DOWN SYNDROME RESEARCH
Most of the information we have about Down syndrome is based on people with Down syndrome who have been severely impacted by the discrimination and mistreatment of people with Down syndrome world wide. For example, it used to be considered a fact that people with Down syndrome only lived until about age 25. Today, people with Down syndrome have the same life span as those without any disability. The reason for this? People started treating people with Down syndrome better. Another example is that it used to be a fact that Down syndrome caused people with it to have flat heads. In reality, due to low muscle tone, babies with Down syndrome spent more time on their backs than babies without Down syndrome, resulting in a flat head. Today, we correct prevent this with helmets and physical therapy. We want to compile a database of information about Down syndrome that has not been influenced by discrimination and mistreatment. If you would like to perform a study that has already been done to double check current facts, or to perform your own study, let us know! While we are currently in the process of becoming an official nonprofit, we are not accepting donations at this time. When we do begin accepting donations, all research will be funded through donations, and posted on our website with free public access. Researchers will all be credited for their research. In the meantime, if you would like to conduct research without any funds, please fill out the application below.
Add a Book to Our Collection
We plan to have many books published at Save Down Syndrome, educating all audiences about the truth about Down syndrome, and the injustices people with Down syndrome face. Until then, we are featuring books by others about Down syndrome. If a book is in our collection, it supports the idea that people with Down syndrome can be just as capable and intelligent as anyone else. If you would like to write a book to add to our collection, or add your already published book to our collection, please fill out the form below!
If you have a story to tell, or something on your mind, share it with the world on our blog! Blog posts are advertised on our social media outlets, and also posted on The Mighty, a popular blogging network. We only accept entries relating to Down syndrome, and prefer entries about Down syndrome in general or someone with Down syndrome. While the experiences of family and friends of people with Down syndrome are very important, our focus is not on the experiences of family members and friends, but rather people with Down syndrome. We are here to lift up their voices, not overpower them. If you would like to write for our blog, or you have an article previously published that you would like for us to feature, please fill out the form below.
Our partner organizations share our goal of ending the genocide, discrimination, and mistreatment of people with Down syndrome, and believe that people with Down syndrome can be just as capable and intelligent as anyone else. If you would like to partner with us, fill out the application below.
