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.

Its Buddy Walk Time!


* Down Syndrome Indiana 2008 Buddy Walk * Saturday, October 11, 2008 *

Dear Friends and Family:

It’s Buddy Walk Time! For those not aware, DSI (formerly the Indiana Down syndrome Foundation) is an organization that is committed to assisting and supporting individuals with Down syndrome, along with their families, and realizing the potential of all people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk is designed to promote awareness and inclusion for people with Down syndrome, as well as to raise money to support national education, research and advocacy initiatives. Needless to say, it promotes a cause that is close to our hearts.

To Join the Dash with Nash Team and walk with us October 11th click here
and click on “Join Dash with Nash”. You don’t have to donate to Walk, but you can donate! (Ignore the “personal goal” part, not sure why that is there) click on “personal donation” and go from there.
If you can’t walk, click here to donate. Click on “Donate to Dash with Nash” If you choose to donate please make sure they it is in before SEPTEMBER 25TH so we can count it toward our team goal!

We will be combining all teams from White River Elementary to Walk on Oct 11th- Hoping to see you all on October 11th and if we don’t, thank you for your support and generosity.
With warmest regards, Jeff, Jan, Nash and Seger Huffman

I PROMISE next year, we will come and make an event out of it.

Love you all! L
