Dance up a storm at the Butterfly Ball

21 May 2016

This Saturday, 28 May marks a special occassion for Down Syndrome Western Australia - is't the 30th anniversary of their Butterfly Ball! 

If you aren't going along, why not support DSWA by joining the #doalittledanceforDSWA campaign? 

Step 1) Record a short video of yourself, your family or friends dancing to your favourite tune in celebration of our 30th anniversary! The video doesn’t have to be too long, 10 seconds will do!

Step 2) Nominate a friend, family member or colleague. (Like the Ice Bucket Challenge!)

Step 3) Pledge a donation at www.dsawa.asn.au/doalittledance

Step 4) Post the video, with the text we’ve suggested below, on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the handle @DownsyndromeWA and hashtag #doalittledanceforDSWA

I’m doing a little dance for @DownsyndromeWA to raise critical funds and help celebrate 30 years of supporting WA families. It’s your move! I’m donating at www.dsawa.asn.au/doalittledanceso, dance anyone? #doalittledanceforDSWA
