Giovanni's 21 gifts
Golf Tournament Information
Giovanni’s 21 Gifts is a Non Profit Organization founded by Antonio and Crystal Mauro. Our organization is designed to raise awareness for expecting and existing families who have a child with Down syndrome. Our journey started twenty weeks into pregnancy when we learned of the news that would change our lives forever. In every human body, there are genes. Genes carry the codes for all our inherited traits and are grouped along structures called chromosomes. Generally, the nucleus of each cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes. Down syndrome occurs when an individual has a third copy (trisomy 21) or a partial extra copy (translocation 14) of chromosome 21.
Down syndrome is a common genetic variation that usually causes delay in physical, intellectual and language development. The exact causes of Down syndrome are unknown and have no relation to race, ethnicity, religion or socio-economic status. Down syndrome is estimated to occur in 1 in every 700 births. Just as with typical people, people with Down syndrome have a wide variation in mental and physical abilities and behavior. Each person has his or her own personality and talents. People with Down syndrome benefit from loving homes, early intervention programs, inclusion in school, and appropriate medical care.
Our goal through your generous donations is to deliver gift baskets filled with LOVE and 21 Gifts to local hospitals. We want expecting families who have yet to receive their amazing news that they are not going to walk this walk alone. We were blessed with an amazing support group and want others to know where to find us for support, what resources are available to them, and how our children need to be included in today’s society. Please learn more about our story and journey at www.giovannis21gifts.com and remember, FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS COUNT CHROMOSOMES!
