Life with Ds
Life with Ds is an instagram-based photo project that seeks to celebrate the lives that we live in the international Down syndrome community.
The point is to see our commonalities, celebrate the beauty of our lives, share and receive support for our challenges.
It goes across the width and breadth of the Down syndrome community. All are welcome.
The project now has over 1,000 members (“followers”) and and thousands of posts. It is helping to unite us across the Down syndrome community and is reaching the goals of the project.
The more people that join in the Life with Ds project and hashtag their photos #lifewithDs on Instagram, the more we share these snippets of our lives and create the visual orchestra of our lives, spirits, frustrations, victories, worlds.
Instagram has a great new feature called “follow hashtag” – that’s where you can follow the actual hashtag and not just the project (but please do follow the project too!). This way you get to see ALL of the posts that that have been hash tagged #lifewithDs and not just the ones that are featured or highlighted.
Here are the links:

As you post, we encourage you to step a little outside of your own experienced get to know others in the global Down syndrome community that might have different culture, language, and perspectives than you – in that reaching and sharing, we are truly moving forward in creating a stronger community.
