In honor of Down Syndrome Awareness month, Knightly will be sending kisses everyday via Periscope LIVE from his adventures this month.
Hear inspiring stories and glimpse into the daily life of a child with Down Syndrome.
what is periscope?
Periscope is Twitter’s live video streaming app and the latest up and coming social media outlet. Anytime, anywhere, you can go live on video and audio and any viewer in the world can join to ask questions, comments, or tap the screen to share hearts and show love.
Here’s the catch. After the broadcast, you’ve got 24 hours to replay the video if you missed it. Otherwise, it’s gone.
Unless you learn how to save it (which thank God I figured out but only several days in).
upcoming periscope schedule (in PST)
We’re so grateful to God for the community and opportunities to bring awareness for Down Syndrome. IMPORTANT NOTE: Timeframes are estimates as we are working with the schedule adherence and model behavior of a toddler 🙂
