Thank goodness for Alexander's Angels! When we moved to Long Island 8 years ago, it was very difficult to find a support organization for children with Down Syndrome. Through Alexander's Angels, their fundraising efforts, newsletters, emails etc., we have been able to find so many programs available to us for our son who is now 13 years old because of their information. They also helps sponser the yearly Buddywalk for Down Syndrome which we find so important as a family to celebrate the community of parents, siblings, educators, advocates, and the people themselves involved in bettering the lives of those we love. Alexander's Angel's always focuses on the positives with their support of the arts, films, recreational options, research information etc. Alexander's Angels is an organization that is a grounding point for me and my family when it comes to needing support or information related in the many different areas touched by that extra special chromosome. We are so excited to see how Alexander's Angels has grown each year to be able to provided more information and support and look forward to what is in store for the future through this fine organization!

Alexanders Angel's is a wonderful organization that not only raises money to support individuals with Down syndrome, but also supports, advocates and raises awareness for individuals themselves.

Alexander Angel's has reached out and supported our organization which focuses on individuals with Down syndrome lending guidance, support and a donation.

When I think of the slogan "We are more alike than different" I think of Alexanders Angel's....Why? They have put on and showed the world that individuals with Down syndrome can in fact do everything that everyone else can do by show casing their talent in art and supporting them. Thank you Alexanders Angel's for being supportive and advocating for our children, showing all the positive things they can do.
