Dallas, Texas, United States of America / ACCESSWIRE / March 21, 2014 / World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is a global awareness day that has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.

“Our support will help make that dream a reality by the decision to make a recurring monthly financial gift, thus fulfilling our mandate to support worthwhile causes within our host community,” added Jerry Dawson.
