A heartwarming proposal

CoorDown shows that everyone deserves true love.

CoorDown is group that coordinates the efforts of different Down Syndrome advocacy groups around the world. With World Down Syndrome Day coming up on March 21, Saatchi & Saatchi’s Italian office and CoorDown helped Salvatore organize a surprise marriage proposal to Caterina while she was at work, all while a group of a cappela singers serenaded the lovebirds. Both Salvatore and Caterina live independently with Down Syndrome, and the spot looks to break down stigmas by showing everyone else that those with the syndrome are capable (and more than deserving) of working, having independent lives and finding true love, just like the rest of us.
