Gifts : Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives

The Gifts Outreach program provides complimentary copies of Gifts to organizations which serve parents facing a new diagnosis of Down syndrome for their child, either prenatally or postnatally. We believe that the stories in the book provide a vital companionship and support for such parents.

Donate to Nash's Buddy Walk Team and IDSF Buddy Walk!

It's Buddy Walk Time!

Dear Friends, Family and fellow Bloggers:

It’s that time of year again! Many of you have previously participated in our Indiana Down Syndrome Foundation Buddy Walk, either by walking with our Team, or donating money. The 8th annual IDSF Buddy Walk is September 24th this year. And we need your support! Our NUTS ABOUT NASH team goal is $3,000 dollars this year.

Last year the IDSF Buddy Walk raised over $150,000!

What is a Buddy Walk?

The 2005 Buddy Walk is a fundraising event designed to raise awareness about people with Down syndrome. It is a day of fun for the entire family!
The 8th annual IDSF Buddy Walk is being coordinated by the Indiana Down Syndrome Foundation, in partnership with the National Down Syndrome Society. Walks take place all across the United States. There is no registration fee for the Buddy Walk; however, donations are greatly appreciated. Proceeds from the walk help fund programs and services of the IDSF in support of individuals with Down syndrome and their families.

Entertainment will be provided by Chris Burke, of "Life Goes On", and there will be booths, food, and lots of fun.

If you are unable to attend, but would like to support the Buddy Walk, you can help by donating to our team NUTS ABOUT NASH, on the internet, or by mailing a check by September 23rd.
