Welcome to Illinois

Christmas comes early

Posted in Charities, Politics by Matt at WelcometoIllinois on October 15, 2008

I’ve just seen that Down Syndrome Education International has a series of Christmas cards on sale including designs by young children with Down’s syndrome.

Unlike other charity cards for which a paltry amount actually makes it to the charity, at least 60% of the sales price for these cards goes to Down Syndrome Education International or Down Syndrome Education USA (depending on where you are).

More details on the cards and how to order them can be found here.

It’s also good to see that children with Down’s syndrome have been asked to design a Christmas card for the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

The winning design, chosen by Alistair Darling and his wife and will feature on the official HM Treasury Christmas card. Profits will be donated to DownsEd.
