We are so excited to be heading to the 46th Annual National Down Syndrome Congress conference in Dallas this weekend! With thousands of people from across the globe attending, it’s an incredible opportunity for us to connect with and learn from our amazing extended Down syndrome family –including experts, parents, siblings and many other impactful advocacy organizations.
With so much happening in a few short days, GiGi’s will be making the most of this special time with all of you. We’ll be onsite with our Hugs + Mugs Team at Booths 8 and 9, please stop by to say hello and learn more about the miracles happening every day at the 37 GiGi’s Playhouses across the nation and in Mexico too!
We also want to maximize this opportunity to reach out to other Down syndrome associations. We are always seeking new ways to be #strongertogether. If you’re interested in collaborating with GiGi’s, let’s make it happen!!
You can find GiGi and Nancy at the Hugs + Mugs Booth on Friday from 10-11am and 12:30-1:30 pm, and on Saturday morning from 8:30-9:30 am and 10:45-11:45 am. Come by for a meet & greet and to get your signed copy of Nancy’s new book, #GenerationG. All proceeds from the book help provide over 30 FREE educational, therapeutic and career programs to children and adults with Down syndrome.
You can also have your picture snapped as you take the #generationG pledge–a conscious decision to be better every day – Be Accepting. Be Generous. Be Kind. If you post your pledge selfie to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter at #NDSC2018 and tag GiGi’s, you could win a gift basket from our Hugs + Mugs Store!
We’ll also have lots of fun items available for purchase at the Hugs + Mugs Booth, all designed by our talented interns. You can even order a customized item to show off your personal design-ABILITY using your own artwork or photo for a one-of-a-kind mug, water bottle, keychain and more!
