Jack’s Basket is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to celebrate babies with Down syndrome. We strive to ensure that every new and expectant parent is provided resources and avenues of support within the community. We aim to educate medical providers on how to discuss the diagnosis in an unbiased way in hopes that having a baby with Down syndrome is celebrated like any other.
Our virtual team for 2020 is honoring the people in our lives that have Down syndrome and the ways they make us better. We are celebrating the work of Jack's Basket in their efforts of changing the narrative around Down syndrome. Find out more about Jack's Basket at www.jacksbasket.org
“When you find out your child has Down syndrome, you feel like you have been shipped to a deserted island. You feel like all your friends with typical children get to carry on while your world stops spinning on its axis. Then a box arrives at your door. While it is filled with beautiful things, more importantly, you realize you’re not alone. There is an entire organization standing behind you celebrating the birth of your perfect child. Jack's Basket brings more than gifts for your new baby. It brings love, understanding, and joy to a family embarking on a new journey.” - Lauren, Copelan’s Mom (South Carolina)
