The Congratulations Project

Donate today to support the distribution of our letters. A donation of $10 will send a package with hope and encouragement to a new family.

Share the Joy!

The Congratulations Project is an initiative in which members of the PALS family write letters to new members of the Down syndrome community. These letters are designed to inspire, encourage, welcome and, most importantly, congratulate new parents and siblings of a child with Down syndrome.


Our Sponsors

We are continuing to look for new sponsors to help us distribute more gift items to our letter recipients!  If you are interested, please email us at congratulations@palsprograms.org.
