T4321... BLAST OFF!!

Put on Your Kettle for World Down Syndrome Day, 21st March 2011!

Meet Gerard: Tropfest winning actor. Recent winner of Newtown’s Short and Sweet Festival. Soon to study at NIDA. Happens to have Down syndrome.*

People with Down syndrome (also known as Trisomy 21), like Gerard, are now living more confident, happy independent lives than ever dreamed possible.

To celebrate that fact and to foster greater community acceptance and understanding, the first World Down Syndrome Day was declared on March 21st, 2006.

Now in its 6th year, hundreds of organisations around the world have joined in the celebrations with a variety of events. In NSW alone, Tea for 321 (T4321) was launched with over 60 events and over 1000 people taking part across NSW!

We are encouraging one and all to join in on the festivities on March 21st, 2011 by holding a morning or afternoon tea at your home, school, workplace, club, church, Local Park, Cafe or wherever you please! Grab your family, friends, colleagues, fellow club members, or even your local MP and tell them you’re putting on the kettle for a great cause. All you need to do after that is crack open the Tim Tams, bake some scones, order some lammies - and enjoy yourself!

To get your hands on the essential fundraising kit, please contact  or call 02 9841 4404.

All donations raised from the T4321 morning tea will go to Down Syndrome NSW, an independent charity supporting people with Down syndrome and their families.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible and can also be made at
