Last year, our state legislature passed a bill to authorize a Down syndrome awareness license plate. We must pre-sell 1,000 BEFORE they will go into production. We didn't reach the goal in 2017, so we had new legislation passed this year and must reach our goal by June 30, 2018. License plates are $35 each.
Half the money of each purchase will go to DSAMT and be used for state-wide advocacy efforts and our Sunshine Program, which helps families whose loved one with Down syndrome is in the hospital or is in a time of crisis. It also allows us to continue to provide the handmade quilts to all the DSAs in TN for their new babies. So the funds will benefit individuals with DS across the state!
You may purchase online here as many as you like (simply adjust your amount accordingly) or pay by check. If you wish to order by check instead please make checks to DSAMT and send to P.O. Box 1182 Mt. Juliet Tn 37121. Your check must clearly state license plate on the memo line.
Once we sell the first 1,000, additional plates will be available, and you will be able to renew in subsequent years.
Please note - go ahead & pre-purchase even if your tags aren't due yet. When we reach our goal, you will be notified and the DMV prorates your tags, so you aren't double charged.
The license plate is a great way to spread awareness about Down syndrome. Plus, it might just help you meet another family that you don’t know.
