Background
In Italy, due to prejudice, the basic rights of people with Down syndrome are still too often denied. With more funds available it would be possible to defend their rights.

Idea
On launch day, on the site CoorDown.it, 50 people with Down Syndrome each appeared on video appealing to 50 celebrities for a donation. But not of money: they asked them to donate a video. A video in which they, the celebrities, asked for the money to support people with Down syndrome, amplifying their voices. A video, which if then shared via the celebrities’ social networks, would have more chance of being listened to.
