World down syndrome day socks

March 21st is World Down Syndrome day.  Organizers want to help bring attention to the need to allow people with Down Syndrome to have an opportunity to function in and contribute to their community.  Unfortunately many people with Down Syndrome are prevented from doing so in their communities.  Sometimes it's just lack of knowledge and understanding, other times it's a negative attitude toward their potential.

We at Renegade wish to support this cause and support one of our own as well.  Our General Manager has a grandchild with Down Syndrome.   It would be nice to think that by the time they grow up, the world will be a more accepting place in allowing everybody with Down Syndrome to prosper and contribute all they can in their life.

We chose to support WDSD by wearing #LotsOfSocks.  The goal is to wear brightly colored socks so that people will ask "why are you wearing those".  That will give us a chance to tell them about WDSD and hopefully raise some awareness.

We also have a few employees that dressed up with more than colorful socks.  They made sure people would ask them why they are dressed the way they are today so they can create the conversation about World Down Syndrome Day!
