Raffle Benefits

It’s always great to hear from organizations that post their raffles with us year after year and the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota was one of the very first organizations we posted a raffle for on the this site!
A bit about Down Syndrome…

  • Down syndrome is a chromosomal variation which usually causes delays in physical, intellectual and language development.
  • Down syndrome is one of the leading causes of mental retardation – it is not related to race, nationality, religion or socioeconomic status.
  • The incidence of Down syndrome in the United States is estimated to be 1 in every 722 live births (about 4,000 individuals each year) affecting approximately 250,000 families.
  • The exact cause and prevention of Down syndrome are currently unknown.
  • Down syndrome occurs at the moment of conception.
  • While the likelihood of giving birth to a child with Down syndrome increases with maternal age, 80 percent of babies with Down syndrome are born to women under 35 years of age, as women in that age group give birth to more babies overall.
  • There is a wide variation in mental abilities, behavior and physical development in individuals with Down syndrome.  Each individual has his/her own unique personality, capabilities and talents.
  • 30-50 percent of individuals with Down syndrome have heart defects and 8-12 percent have gastrointestinal tract abnormalities present at birth.  Most of these defects are now correctable by surgery.
  • Individuals with Down syndrome benefit from loving homes, early intervention, special education, appropriate medical care and positive public attitudes.
  • In adulthood, many people with Down syndrome hold jobs, live independently and enjoy recreational opportunities in their communities.
