Wouldnt Change A Thing Charity
on behalf of Jacqui Hicklin
It all started with a little video, created for World Down Syndrome Day 2018, that took social media by storm called 50 Mums | 50 Kids | 1 Extra Chromosome. It became one of the most popular not-for-profit viral videos of all time, racking up around 230 million views in only a few months and popularised the hashtag: #wouldntchangeathing 

It made such a positive impact on modernising mainstream perceptions of the condition that a bunch of people involved in that initial project decided to set up this organisation to continue the mission. It has now grown to include a multi-skilled, passionate group of people from all over the world.

What are we trying to achieve?

Wouldn’t Change a Thing is devoted to creating a world where negative outdated perceptions of Down’s Syndrome are a thing of the past.

How do we do it?

We do this by creating and promoting projects designed to directly challenge outdated perceptions. Our projects are designed to be uplifting, emotive and positive; offering insights into how enjoyable life for all those associated with the condition can be.

Our intent is to leave those who view our work feeling challenged and changed making them more willing to accept those with Down’s Syndrome and to consider them as valid members of society, as schoolmates, as work colleagues or as employees.

A huge 'Well Done' to Jacqui Hicklin who is now officially a marathon runner, she did so incredibly well in such high temperatures, such a huge achievement, we are incredibly proud of her! Thank you so much to all who sponsored her for the marathon.

Thank you to all who have donated since we have launched the Wouldn't Change A Thing, we are working towards Charity status through various fundraisers. All donations are gratefully received.

The next fundraiser is for another of our Trustees, Tania Charlton who has signed up to a 10k Mud run which includes 30 obstacles around a hilly muddy route. The mud run is on the 15th September. Tania did this event last year and practically cried all the way round stating 'never again!' but, then Wouldn't Change A thing happened and if she can do it for anything then she will for WCAT!
