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 - sent to production April, 2019 (takes 6 months to be available) 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 as many as you like or pay by check. If you wish to order by check, 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 and provide names, addresses and emails for your plate recipients.
You will be able to renew in subsequent years.
Please note - go ahead & pre-purchase even if your tags aren't due yet. 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.
