what is think out, be light?
Think Out, Be Light is the coolest, happiest day of the year.
TOBL is a fashion show that celebrates children and young adults with special needs. It happens every year on World Down syndrome Day and provides an opportunity for us to remind our friends and loved ones about just how important every human life is.
Think Out, Be Light is managed and sponsored by the Zoe Communications Agency.
this year's theme:
Be 4 Me
Everybody could use an advocate, especially our friends in the Down syndrome and intellectually disabled community. We believe that every child and adult we celebrate has possibility. That's why we are encouraging you, our friends, go not only advocate for the people in this beautiful community, but to use your voice to carve a path for them.
Come before them. And be FOR them, too.
This year's event is completely virtual! We welcome donations of any amount. Proceeds benefit organizations that provide training and jobs to people with learning differences.
We'll send you a link to the show a couple days before the event, and a reminder the hour before the event, too!
This year's TOBL featured designer is Charlie French. He's responsible for the design of our 2021 t-shirt and merch!
Charlie was born with Down syndrome and is known for his beautiful work as an intuitive abstract artist. Charlieworks hard, but likes to be free and have fun!
Proceeds from all of our merch designed by Charlie benefit organizations that provide work for people with intellectual disabilities. Learn more about the organizations we support:
