About the Campaign
When our son Taylor was born four years ago we received a diagnosis of Down Syndrome. What we were not told was that he would be like any other little boy, that he would love his family, sleep in a big boy bed, celebrate with big Birthday Parties with all of his little friends etc; it all sounds pretty “normal” doesn’t it?
What the Manitoba Down Syndrome Society showed us is that our children will go on and do all of the things typical children will do, they will just do it in their own time and sometimes with a little more help.
As Taylor’s mom I have since joined the Board as I feel it is important to not just expect others to make our kids lives better but to give them a voice and make things happen as well. And that is where your donations help the MDSS. The money raised helps us to run programs that help our children and adults with Down Syndrome(DS) and their families. You, as their Community, benefit as well!!
The MDSS offers programs for our children and adults with DS, as well as their educators; See Me Beautiful Conference. It offers support to families with Buddy Nights and Social Events. It also offers support through meeting new families who are having or have had a baby with DS and through our Baby Love Event which I very proudly put on with another momma and close friend.
With all of your love , support and generosity we hope to reach our goal!
So please come out and Walk With Us and or make a Donation to show support for Taylor and the MDSS!!
