How you can help
"Children who have Down syndrome face complicated challenges in mastering and using speech, language, and communication skills. With the right opportunities and support, they can develop communication skills that help them to make relationships and socialise, communicate wishes, needs, and aspiration, and use language effectively as a tool in all sorts of situations." - Leela Baksi, 2006
You can help UpsideDowns to provide children with Down syndrome with these life-changing opportunities. There are lots of ways to help! Click on the links below to be a part of our work.
We are lucky to be a partner charity of One Percent Collective - a collective of people who give 1% of their income to Kiwi-based causes. If you'd like to set up a regular donation to UpsideDowns, One Percent Collective is a great way to do it! Simply follow the link below and choose UpsideDowns as your charity.
Thanks to the folk at the Good Registry, you can donate your special event to UpsideDowns! The Good Registry means no unwanted gifts, no wasted gift-wrap and packaging, and no wasted time hunting for presents for people who would rather use their special events to help others.
Every little helps at UpsideDowns! You can donate any amount you like and it will come straight to us by clicking the link below. All donations are tax deductible, and you can claim 33.3% back from the IRD.
