She has been an incredible spokesperson for Global Down Syndrome Foundation, including being a celebrity escort in GLOBAL’s Be Beautiful Be Yourself Fashion Show and partnering with retailers and influencers for GLOBAL’s Mother’s Day campaign multiple years. In 2018, Booth was the face of GLOBAL’s Mother’s Day campaign with Anthropologie, and in 2019 she rallied the support of her Mommy Bloggers tribe to help GLOBAL create a special video to pay tribute to the holiday.
In addition to supporting GLOBAL’s work, Booth has been heavily involved with other transformative Down syndrome organizations, including Ruby’s Rainbow, and Changing the Face of Beauty. While she’s actively spreading awareness about Down syndrome as an advocate and GLOBAL spokesperson, Booth also continues to grace the covers of magazines everywhere. Most recently, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Living with her son Micah, making him the first person with Down Syndrome to be on the cover of Vogue. They’ve also appeared in international campaigns for Lululemon, River Island, and Anthropologie. GLOBAL is honored to recognize Amanda Booth with our 2019 Quincy Jones Exceptional Advocacy Award. We are excited to continue our friendship and partnership in transforming the lives of people with Down syndrome all over the world.
