Hi. We're LuMind IDSC!

LuMind IDSC is a non-profit organization that serves as a bridge between the Down syndrome community and the research community.

We provide resources to people with Down syndrome and their families, and we work directly with scientific researchers to develop therapies, medications, and other treatments that can improve the health and wellness of people with Down syndrome.

Nice to meet you!

LuMind IDSC Foundation is celebrating Down Syndrome Awareness Month – and the vibrant Down syndrome community – with a Random Act of Kindness campaign. Nowadays we all could use some kindness, and we invite you to participate!

How do I conduct a Random Act of Kindness?

  1. Decide what you want your RAOK to be, and to whom you want to direct it! You can do as many or as few as you want!
  2. Download and print a postcard below to include with your “Act” so that the recipient knows what it’s for!
  3. Register your RAOK and share photos (optional) so we can show the scope of this international movement to spread kindness in honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month!
  4. Encourage others to commit their Random Act of Kindness in October. You can download, send, or print an invitation to share!


Explore RAOK ideas & plan your “act”!
