Submarine traditionally initiates a charity campaign on World Down Syndrome Day by selling colorful socks. These socks are specially designed for the occasion and produced in collaboration with the renowned brand HYPERsocks.

Wearing mismatched socks is a characteristic gesture during the month of March, raising awareness about Down syndrome and showing support and understanding for individuals with Down syndrome. By purchasing Submarine’s colorful socks, you can directly assist the Croatian Down Syndrome Association, as all proceeds from sales go to them.

This year, Submarine has prepared the latest sock designs, but designs from previous years are also available. All funds collected from sock sales will be donated to the Croatian Down Syndrome Association and used to educate young people with Down syndrome towards independence.

“Social responsibility has always been an integral part of our business, so we are proud to be the initiators of this valuable campaign once again this year. We hope that our contribution will ease the path for young people with Down syndrome towards independence and integration into society,” said Luka Jureško from Submarine.

Dinka Vuković, president of the Croatian Down Syndrome Association, revealed details on how the funds collected will be used this year. “This year, the focus of our program is on educating young people for independence. We plan to send two young people with Down syndrome to Italy for an independence training course, in collaboration with the Down Syndrome Association from Potenza. This course will be an important step towards their independence and integration into society,” explained Vuković.

All those interested in supporting this commendable initiative can purchase socks at Submarine restaurants throughout Croatia. The number of socks is limited, so hurry and secure your pair to contribute to supporting young people with Down syndrome on their journey towards independence and integration.
