Down Syndrome Awareness

By Rebecca Talley

In celebration of the National Down Syndrome Awareness Month I have created this video, Extra C. Please help me spread the message that every child is a gift, even if the wrapping is a little different.

The music was composed and played by C.S. Bezas, an incredibly talented and creative musician. Please visit her website www.csbezasmusic.com to hear more of her beautiful music.

As a thank you to all who spread this message and share this video, I will sponsor a contest and give away a copy of my book, Heaven Scent, to the winner.

In order to qualify for the contest you can post this video on your website and/or blog and/or make a comment on this video at YouTube and/or pass this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGO5wqldyAo to people on your email lists. Just leave a comment on this post, or email me, and let me know what you did to help spread this message and I'll enter you into the drawing. The contest will run until midnight October 24th.
On October 25th one of my kids will draw a name from those that qualify and you'll receive a signed copy of my book.

Thank you for helping me to change attitudes about Down syndrome. Enjoy the video.

A great video, Rebecca. Don't let it stop.

Thank you. Hopefully, it'll make its way around the internet.

I'm trying to play this, Rebecca, but the sound isn't working for me. When I get it fixed I'll try again, and do a blog post for you.

Rebecca Talley said...

Thank you, Anne.

I'm very pleased with the response and the support.

Very cute! My little sister has Down Syndrome, so this was a heart-tugger.
