In honor of World Down Syndrome Day (Saturday, March 21st), Down Syndrome Indiana and GiGi's Playhouse Indianapolis are excited to partner with Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action for a "Random Acts of Kindness" campaign to highlight the positive influence individuals with disabilities have on their communities!
