A Simple Message:


The Congratulations Project is an initiative where adults with Down syndrome write letters to new and expecting parents of a baby with a Down syndrome diagnosis. These letters are designed to inspire, encourage, welcome and, most importantly, congratulate new families. They all begin with the same, simple message: Congratulations.



October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month! Celebrate by purchasing a Congratulations Project shirt, and share the welcoming words of PALS campers wherever you go. This is a single-run, limited edition apparel item that will not be available after October 2019.

One dollar from each purchase will benefit the PALS Congratulations Project.

It gave me so much hope and strength when I was still trying to figure out what Down syndrome would mean for our son. Thank you for giving me that first glimpse into what a great life he will have.
