Quarterly Newsletter – Sept 2022

This year’s theme is “Acceptance Through Understanding”.As a network, we can empower people around the world to advocate for individuals with Down syndrome! Throughout October, we will share the moments that have shaped the lives of people with Down syndrome and those who love them.
We need YOU to share your DS story!! Send us your pictures, stories and videos here!
As we anticipate year-end celebrations with friends and family, many of us are considering how our charitable dollars can change the world.DID YOU KNOW: While GiGi’s Programs are purposeful, progressive, and always FREE, it is ONLY BECAUSE of the charitable support of donors like YOU that GiGi’s Playhouse can develop programs, create educational materials, and reach families who urgently need our help.

We need YOU.
We need 100% participation of our community to fulfill our mission.
