#LotsOfSocksKAL 2020 total!

Enormous thanks to everyone who has taken part in this year’s The #LotsOfSocksKAL, whether you have knitted socks, bought patterns or made a donation. This year’s total is $13, 970.77, which is phenomenal! The donations went to Down Syndrome International, and will help people with Down syndrome.

On March 21st every year (that’s tomorrow this year), people are encouraged to wear two different brightly coloured socks to highlight the uniqueness of individuals with Down syndrome and to show their support for the Down syndrome community. Why March 21st? People with Down syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21, so the date 3/21 was selected. Lisa started the Lots of Socks KAL to create LOTS of socks, and at the same time generate support and awareness for a great cause!

On March 21, 2020 (World Down Syndrome Day), be sure to wear your socks and spread the word! You can post your socks on Instagram using the following three hashtags #lotsofsocksKAL, #lotsofsocks, and #WorldDownSyndromeDay AND tag @paperdaisycreations. You might also want to tag the designer and include hashtags #WDSD20 and #WorldDownSyndromeDay.

Haven’t added your socks to the KAL thread?
Lisa has done an amazing job of sourcing prizes for the KAL - you can find a full list of prizes in the first post of this thread,* so if you have socks you haven’t added to the FO thread, now is the time to do so.

Thanks again for taking part.
