has a new initiative this year focusing on Down syndrome. Each store is being asked to hold an in-store event connected with Down syndrome during the month of February.
The purpose of the event is to bring awareness, particularly of the many talents and strengths of school children with Down syndrome. The focus will not be on obstacles, but on celebrating achievements.
(This information was found here, and Tom and I were contacted by the Missoula B&N to participate in an event there on February 10.)
