Three years ago, Julie Willson and Shannon Daughtry co-founded Nothing Down in an effort to change the way the world views Down syndrome.
Starting at the beginning of 2018, Nothing Down formed an International Ambassador Program, and now has over 60 Ambassadors across the globe.
These ambassadors have become the face of Nothing Down, representing the organization in EIGHT different countries and in 22 US states. And they are all working hard to share the mission of Nothing Down throughout the world. In fact, 1/4 of all Nothing Down’s followers – 15,000 of them- are from overseas… Followers in over FIFTY-FIVE countries! So the message that there is Nothing Down about Down syndrome is being embraced all over the world.
We are currently concentrating our efforts on our #DearDoctor movement. At Nothing Down, often hear of the heartbreaking ways in which many families receive their child’s Down syndrome diagnosis. It is our goal to change the narrative and to work with the medical community to ensure that EVERY parent is delivered their child’s Down syndrome diagnosis with compassion, up-to-date education, proper resources, and hope. We believe that this film has the strong potential to ignite a much needed change for future parents.
